U16 / Northwest Cup Teams

Age Eligibility: Year of Birth (YOB) 2005 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 14 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

  • Early Registration (Before Oct 15) – $2,250
