Vikings Race Squad
The Vikings aim is to promote ski racing of all kinds from basic club level through to National squad level and beyond. Vikings aims to teach children (and adults) how to race through slalom poles on dry slope and snow. It does not teach skiers how to perfect their general skiing techniques, this is taught in workshops set at other times.
Vikings are active in both the Eastern Region Snowsports Association (ERSA) which is the governing body for the region and the national governing body The English Ski Council (ESC).
The ability levels in this session will range from very basic snowplough and learning to use the lifts to basic parallel turns around markers from the top of the main slope. Fun and learning are key words used for this session. Instructors will aim to develop each pupil’s control of equipment and direction, as well as agility and confidence.
This group of skiers is the feeding ground for the Suffolk Ski Centre team, THE VIKINGS.
Beginners & Novices
This session is for all children between the ages of 7 and 15 years old. The ability of each pupil will range from the complete novice to those who have learnt the basics of stopping and turning.
As each pupil develops and is showing consistent basic technique they will be asked to move up to the Snowploughers session, which is strictly controlled by instructors.
Kindergarden 4 - 6 yrs - Runs from October to March
