Welch Race Academy

An advanced and additional race training program for racers ages 12-18.  Jr. Race Academy is intended for advanced high school,  D-Team and/or USSA race athletes who desire a more focused advanced training schedule. Race Academy features low coach to athlete ratios which increases the amount of personal feedback each athlete receives. Our race coaches use the PMTS Racer Development system, a modern and proven movement-based system that is designed for advanced race athletes in both slalom and giant slalom disciplines. Coaches will use a variety of training methods in order to maximize the speed and technical skills required to be more competitive.  A combination of gate drills, full gate training, video analysis, and timed gate training are used in the program.  

Training Dates & Times: 
- Race Academy training takes place on 2 weeknights each week on WEDNESDAYS & THURSDAYS
- Because most of the race academy athletes also race high school, there could be occasional practice schedule adjustments to allow for high school races in January and early February. 
- Holiday Race Camp Dec. 27-28 (9:00am-11:30am each day)
- Sunday morning practices (9am-11am):  Dec. 12, Jan 16, Jan 31, Feb 6, March 6

Program Fee:  $600 (Register CLICK HERE)
