NGSL (U8, U10 & U12 PROGRAMS)

The NGSL U8, U10 &U12 program introduces children to basic ski techniques and skills, basic safety rules, and teamwork. Enjoyment of the sport and the mountain environment is also emphasized.

The program consists of seven levels that outline key skills that the children require to progress from beginner to the athletic skier, and eventually to learn the basic tactical skills that are required to be a ski racer. There are three primary age categories U8 (6-7yo), U10 (8-9yo) and U12 (10-11yo).

No racing experience is required, but skiers must be able to ski in control and use the chairlift. The junior athletes are assessed for their ability and groups are formed with a coach assigned to each group.
