U10 Ski (ages 8 & 9)

U10 Alpine Ski Racers

McCall Winter Sports Club's U10 Alpine Race Team is designed for athletes ages 8 & 9 looking to develop the fundamentals of skiing and racing. An emphasis is put on becoming the "whole skier" by challenging themselves on more difficult terrain in varied conditions.  Athletes who choose the Alpine Race program need to be strong intermediate skiers with previous experience in McCall Winter Sports Club's program or similar program. 


All U10 athletes will have the opportunity (although not required) to compete in USSA Intermountain Division's North Series races held at ski areas in the Intermountain West. See 2020/2021 IMD North Series schedule here). Coaches will help determine appropriate events to attend based on an individual athlete's progression.
