XLR8 ALPINE RACING

JDT PROGRAM

XLR8 Alpine Racing’s Junior Development Team (JDT) program provides results-driven coaching for young racers (ages 7-17) in a fun, active environment.  Our goal is to develop junior racers, physically and mentally, by using a variety of proven ski racing drills and progressive USSA teaching techniques geared towards young racers.  Our positive teaching approach leads to strong character, increases self-esteem, and instills confidence on and off the hill.

XLR8 Alpine Racing’s JDT program has a proven track record of developing young skiers into top state and national JDT ski racers.  JDT Program athletes train primarily in giant slalom as a foundation for ski racing technique and are also introduced to slalom gate training fundamentals.  Skiers are grouped by ability and ski with the same professional coaches throughout the season for consistency and individual attention.
