Team Hutt 5 day Program: U12/U14/U16/FIS
This program is open to all U14, U16, and FIS athletes.
U12 athletes with a high level of independence and ability may join this program on a case by case basis, after discussion with the Program Director.
The focus is training as one team with individual goals. This program is geared for the competitive skier with a focus on competition development, and will also introduce tactics, multiple disciplines, and race day preparation and process. The skills from previous levels are expanded and adapted in training situations that offer the athlete both fun and challenge. Coaches will bring the focus towards developing not just the skiing and race skills but will begin to make the athlete aware of their potential in fitness and mental aspects affecting their peak performance.
The experienced, professional staff will encourage clear communication of goals and provide appropriate challenges through free-skiing, drills, and training environments that mimic race situations.
The program includes up to five days per week training or racing which will be scheduled by the program director.
Coaches are available to attend all Interfields, National Points and Youth Cup races held at Mt Hutt only. Excludes race entry fees and tickets. Away-races will incur additional costs to cover expenses, which will be billed back to the attending athletes, and each event will be discussed.
FIS Athletes will need to get a FIS License in order to compete in FIS races, and competition in selected FIS races needs to be discussed at a coaches’ discretion. FIS Races and structure provide an even field on which athletes can compare and achieve on a world scale. It provides healthy competition and a professional atmosphere where athletes can develop and achieve their goals and aspirations. This is an important step in achieving national recognition or acceptance to NZ National Ski Racing Programs.

This includes, but not limited to, sickness, injury, weather, mountain closure, pandemic, family issues, or exclusions from the program resulting from breach of our Code of Conduct.
All programs are based on age, but athletes may be grouped based on individual ability and groups may be paired together based on numbers.
* Program Times: The daily scheduled training times are an outline, and may be subject to change based on weather, safety, athlete fatigue, or mountain closure. If the mountain is open, we will endeavour to operate for a minimum of one hour and a maximum of five hours.
