GLASGOW SKI RACING

 

Winner of the English Alpine Championships Best Club 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017


 

A busy section of the Club is the Junior Race Training Programme, which is run by some of the highest qualified coaches in the country. Many former and current trainees have been fed through to the Scottish and British teams at Children, Junior and Senior levels, with major success in both snow and mat championships.

 

It’s important that children develop solid fundamentals before moving onto Race Training.  Here we work hard to progress children through our lesson programme until they have achieved the necessary skills that will allow them to flourish in Race Training. Joining to early can cause problems further down the journey and with plenty opportunity for children to enjoy the magic of racing at Club events and schools events, there should be no rush to reach world domination.  If Racing or Freestyle is an area you are interested in please let your Instructor know, otherwise they won’t presume, competition is not for everyone, the mountains offer the same magic to everyone.

 

Race training runs in three blocks – August to December 2017, January – Easter 2018 and the Summer Programme 2018.  Outwith the training at our own Club we offer training throughout the year at Snow Factor, Hillend and the Scottish Ski Areas.

 

In between blocks of training we run a GSR October Alpine Camp in Tignes, along with further training camps throughout the year in conjunction with EDEP, European Development Excellence Programme. To compliment the training camps throughout the year we offer full training and race support at all the major Home and Alpine races, including the Anglo Scottish races at Christmas, the English Championships in February and the British Championships in March/April.
