Attention Ski Racers, ages 11 to 18. Get a head start on the season and take advantage of this excellent opportunity to work on technique, perfect your line and slam some gates. This fall, we will be conducting another private two-day slalom training camp at Big Snow in East Rutherford on the weekend of October 22 and 23rd.
The Don't Just Ski RACE (DJSR) two-day camp aims to allow ski racers from around the region to have access to fall training in slalom-specific drills and tactics. The camp will focus on alpine racing skills, technique, and fundamentals. We will be utilizing brushes and stubbies; and setting slalom courses for racers to carve turns and run gates. Athletes will have access to multiple drills and training courses on terrain ideal for obtaining and perfecting skills. Racers will be guided by high-level athletes and experienced race coaches. This is an excellent opportunity to get an edge up this season.
THE CAMP IS OPEN TO ALL RACERS. We welcome NJISRA, NJSRA, NYSSRA, PARA, TARA, and VARA racers.
The camp will be conducted over 2 consecutive days on a Saturday and Sunday. We have an exceptional group of certified and experienced race coaches excited to work with you. As usual, we will offer a strong coach-to-racer ratio. DJSR offers a strong 1-to-5 Coach-to-Athlete ratio that allows our coaches to address the individual needs of each racer. With a focus on slalom gate training our two-day race camp will prepare you for the upcoming race season.
