2022/2023 Program Options and Pricing
U14 Team - Ages 12 & 13
Age Eligibility: Year of Birth (YOB) 2009-2010
The SARS U14 Team is a great way to transition from the Youth Ski League Program to the more intensive Junior race programs. This group focuses on cutting-edge skill development both in and out of the race arena while having the opportunity to compete approximately two weekends per month.
The U14 team athlete will have the opportunity to train occasionally on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons as well as all day on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. While there is no obligation to train 3-5 day per week, the opportunity to do so will be available. Athletes are welcome to train on only Saturdays and Sunday, as well.
Note: U14 tuition includes a SARS team jacket
U14 Team (2-5 days per week)
- Tuition – $2,675
- Dates: Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, plus the occasional Wednesday and Thursday afternoons beginning on December 14th through the first weekend in April plus December 27-31 Holiday Camp.
U16 / Northwest Cup Teams - Ages 14 & up
Age Eligibility: Year of Birth (YOB) 2008 and older
This is a full-time racing and training group that competes at Northwest Cup events, Evergreen Cup events, and Regional Championship events upon qualification. Age eligible athletes may also compete in “in-division” FIS races. It is designed for athletes 16 and older aspiring to be successful at the divisional and regional levels. Athletes’ individual needs are met based on tactical, technical, and competitive goals.
FIS-aged athletes that want to compete on a part-time level may choose the Northwest Cup/U16 team rather than the full-time FIS program. This option offers a more limited travel and training schedule yet still offers a great deal of overlap with the FIS program in the training and Northwest Cup racing arena.
Note: U16 tuition includes a SARS team jacket
U16 / Northwest Cup Team (3-5 days per week)
