New to Mad Alpine for 2016-2017! We are excited to announce that we are now part of Wisconsin Junior Racing, which provides athletes with an opportunity to compete in a fun, local, recreational league. This group will focus on skill development, speed acquisition and of course having fun! The program is open to athletes ages 5-18.
We recommend this program as a great development step for U6-U12 athletes who are looking to get involved in ski racing. Many athletes in this program will transition into USSA racing and/or high school racing in the coming years so this program really focuses on refining skills, increasing their comfort with speed and getting athletes comfortable skiing against competition.
This is also a great program for high school athletes that are looking for a place to compete outside of high school racing with Mad Alpine. Many of the top Milwaukee area high school athletes complete in WJR so this is a great opportunity to see your competition prior to Wisconsin High School State.
Program Cost: $375 and includes the following:
- Includes two on snow sessions per week starting in December and ending in March (start & end dates dependent on snow/training availability).
- Training will take place on Tuesdays 5-7PM and Thursdays 5-7PM at Tyrol Basin.
- Includes coaching at our local Tyrol Basin Holiday Camp.
- Additional training opportunities during the season will be announced when available. Additional fees may apply for coaching at these add-on events.
- Includes coaching at all WJR races, which are scheduled for 6 Saturdays in January and February (1/7, 1/14, 1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11).
- Includes coaching at local open races Mad Alpine attends as a team. This schedule will be finalized fall of 2016.
- Includes coaching at the USSA Brule Finale in March, which is a great opportunity for athletes to try USSA racing. This is always a fun event for the athletes and we highly encourage attendance.
- There is also an end of season banquet for WJR athletes usually scheduled for the end of February. Details to come.
- High School athletes that participate in this program will also receive coaching support at High School State Championships held in LaCrosse each February.
- Includes your registration fee of $35 to WJR. Mad Alpine will pay this registration fee directly.
