Junior DTeam Ski Racing

The Welch Village D-Team is a ski development program which provides a junior racing venue to develop the skiing skills of each athlete.  Welch Village is part of the Midwest Sports Development League (MSDL).  The program emphasizes safety, enjoyment, fun, and learning at all times.
