SARS Training Camps
In addition to SARS winter programs, we provide optional race training camps in the summer and fall for the highly competitive and goal-oriented athlete seeking more on hill time. The summer camps are typically geared more towards technical skill development while camps in the fall intend to prepare the athlete for the competition season.
Specific details for the individual camps such as camp content and age eligible athletes can be found under the Camps menu at the top of the page. For those seeking any additional information or have a specific question about one of the SARS camps, please reach out to one of the SARS head coaches.
