The Winter Park Freestyle Junior Qualifier Team is an exciting addition to the freestyle program offerings. The junior qualifier team is designed to align with the Rocky Mountain Freestyle’s “RQS” competition series as next step from Freestyle Devo and the preparatory program for the Freestyle Competitive Team for athletes ages 11 – 15 (ages based on the USSA cutoff date: December 31 of that ski season).
Program participants have the opportunity to train in a high-paced, structured environment with qualified and caring coaches. The athletes can expect to ski 100% of the mountain depending on snow conditions and timing throughout the course of the day: flats, moguls, terrain-park, trees, and steeps with an emphasis on mogul skiing skills. Athletes develop their aerial skills in the terrain parks, on the mogul course and at the freestyle team jump site. Our coaches follow the USSA skill-development season outline to ensure quality training and solid progressions. The athlete can expect to engage in group drills and receive individual feedback based on one’s performance. The coaches give specific feedback highlighting what the athlete executes well and what skiing skills he/she can improve while spending time with each individual setting goals and creating the road map to achieve personal best in sport. As in all Competition Center programs, we put emphasis on our mission, “Lifelong enjoyment of the Sport.”
Must be proficient linking short radius turns on blue black and black terrain. Must demonstrate proper stance and edging techniques on blue terrain. Must be ready and willing to start working on aerials skills in the terrain parks, mogul courses and aerial site. All Skiers will need to purchase USSA and RMD competitors license and will compete in their recommended events. Competition experience strongly recommended
The Freestyle Junior Qualifier Team requires one year of DEVO Travel Team experience / competition before participating. The program is offered on Saturdays and Sundays and includes coaching at the Rocky Qualifier Series and the Rocky Mountain Freestyle Junior competitions.
