Dear Sun Valley Racing Community,
One of the best things that the SVSEF does from a developmental standpoint is our spring training camp. This year we are aspiring to go back to Mammoth Mountain, California. The freesking terrain there is fantastic and the training is phenomenal that time of year. As we did last season, we will be operating two camps simultaneously. With the age change, the U14 and older athletes will have an 8 day camp and the U12's will have a 5 day camp. As with previous years, athletes will train as a group reflecting the 2013-14 season. We consider this project to be the beginning of the new 2013-14 season.
When: Vans will depart for Mammoth on Saturday, June 8th at 7:00 am. We will travel to Mammoth in one shot. First day on snow will be on Sunday, June 9th.
- The older athlete camp will train 4 days, take one off, then train another 3 days departing after a full day of skiing on the 16th.
- The U12 camp will begin skiing on the 9th. The group will train 5 days with one day off. The group will depart after skiing on the 14th and return home midday on Saturday the 15th.
- We realize that the beginning of TCS summer school is Monday, the 17th. For those who need to be back before Monday, we will provide transportation home after a morning session on Sunday the 16th. Those athletes will arrive home in the evening of the 16th.
What: Alpine Ski Racing Fundamentals. A high Coach to Athlete ratio ensures that our kids get the best coaching available. Lots of video, drills, dryland, and time on the hill are the principle goals of the camp. We have seen incredible improvements by providing this environment for our athletes. Mind you this is not a commercial camp; we are only interested in working on developing strong relationships and addressing the fundamental skills that will pave the way for future success.
Where: The snowfields on Mammoth Mountain.
U14 and older -- $1875 full camp price (transportation, lifts, lodging, coaching, dryland
fees, lanes, tickets, all meals minus travel day meals)
U12 -- $1450 full camp price (transportation, lifts, lodging, coaching, dryland fees, lanes, tickets, all meals minus travel day meals)
Deadlines: The camp is limited in space and athletes will be enrolled on a first come, first serve basis. A $300 deposit is required to reserve a spot on the Mammoth Roster. Jody has a signup sheet in the office and will take deposit checks. Any sign-ups after May 15th will be charged an additional $100 late fee.
**** Please note that this is all completely dependent upon Mother Nature. Mammoth had a decent season and as of right now, everything looks great for June. If this does change we will work on contingencies. We will periodically update you guys as per any changes to the published itinerary.
