Age group: Competitors aged 12–13 (as of December 31)
Skill level: Learn to Train, Learn to Race
The U14 series transitions skiers from the Learn to Train to the Learn to Race stages of the AIM model, designed to give young racers an opportunity to develop their racing and skiing skills and progress according with their ability. Emphasis is placed on providing strong coaches so that these young racers receive a strong technical foundation from which to progress to higher levels.
The Snow Stars program – introduced in the Nancy Greene Ski League – is an excellent teaching tool for the U14 level, and clubs are encouraged to pursue the goal of having a high percentage of U14 skiers achieve Level 7.
