The ASC Juniors program is designed to provide a range of training and racing opportunities relative to both individual athletic goals and individual time commitments. While the younger level Junior Development program offerings (U10, U12) utilize a somewhat one size fits all approach while the older level Junior program offerings (U14, U16, U18) are designed around providing athletes opportunities to be successful at specific levels competitively (local/divisional or regional/national/international). The primary goals of the Juniors Development programs are fundamental skill acquisition and developing a love for the competitive aspects of the sport. The primary goals of the upper level Junior programs are skill refinement and athletic performance relative to specific levels of competition. This approach allows us to provide programs for those athletes who participate in multiple sports/activities and/or are more focused on local/divisional competition as well as those that have identified skiing as their primary sport and are focused on regional/national/international competition.

While the ASC Juniors program is commitment based, it is also recognized that in order to provide quality programming to all participants we need to ensure athletes have a minimum skill/ability level to participate in one of the upper level Juniors programs (U14, U16, U18). It is assumed that athletes who are graduating up from the ASC Junior Development programs (U10, U12) would have attained the necessary skills/abilities to participate in the upper level Juniors programs should they desire to do so. Athletes new to the ASC Juniors programs must demonstrate they have the required skills/abilities before they are able to participate in one of the upper level ASC Junior programs. New upper level Junior athletes may request to be evaluated at the end of the season prior to them joining the Juniors program, at a preseason Juniors training camp or at the start of the new season. Athlete evaluation requests should be directed to the Alpine Program Director, Jennifer Danza alpinedirector@alyeskaskiclub.com.

The registration cost for each ASC Junior program consists of a pay-per-programmed day method. Thus, depending on the program chosen, (Full-Time vs. Part-Time) the athlete will be charged at registration for the days included in each program. Please read carefully the differences between each program. For example, full-time programs include all camp/race coaching fees and year-round dryland training.

All athletes will also incur a “user-pay” fee for charges incurred such as lift tickets and facility usage fees, entry fees, ground/air transportation, food/accommodations, athlete equipment, coach travel expenses, etc. Refunds will not be issued for unused services outside the established refund policy.

Please remember that all programs begin May 1st of each year.

It should be noted that the Juniors programs include the following as part of their annual registration fees:

  • On-snow coaching for calendared training and competitions;
  • Dryland coaching (designated Full-time programs)
  • Individual athlete management;
  • Low coach: athlete ratios (1:6 – optimum);
  • Mid-season and year-end athlete evaluation reports;
  • Regular season Alyeska and Hilltop training lane fees;
  • Use of team equipment (e.g. gates, video, timing, etc.);
  • Use of ASC Race Training Center facilities;
  • Ski equipment support – selections, discounts;
  • Ski tuning and preparation instruction and clinics;
  • USSS liaison and committee representation;
  • Travel and competition support – coordination of entries, transportation, accommodations, technical support and supervision;
  • Regular communication via email, club wide events, access to Administrative and Juniors coaching staff, Committees and the Board of Directors, and
  • Year-end awards banquet.
