The Junior Competition Ski Team is part of The Utah Nordic Alliance's racing division and is open to all kids from 8-13. It is for those skiers with an interest in developing their skiing skills through formal ski training and games that emphasize the fundamentals of balance and technique, geared towards athletes who are anticipating participating in cross country ski racing. Skiers should be proficient in both classic and skating techniques. Athletes are encouraged to sign up for the 3day/week program, however we also offer a 2day/week program for those with other comittments. Jr. Comp athletes are also encouraged to race at Wasatch Citizens Series races, IMD Series races, and the new Utah Junior Series races, which will be held on specific Wednesdays throughout the season.
The Jr. Comp team meets Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 4:30-6:30 primarily at Mtn. Dell, but also at other venues in the Salt Lake Valley and Park City. For more specific information on training locations and workouts, please check out the Comp Training Calendar.
Please note: TUNA is an all-volunteer organization, is continually in need of volunteers, and requests that the parents or guardians of each participant perform a certain amount of service hours at TUNA sponsored events or functions. For skiers in the Jr. Comp program, TUNA requests 15 hours of service plus one day of greeting at Mountain Dell. After the volunteer service is complete, a request may be sent to volunteer_deposit [at] utahnordic [dot] com and the deposit will be refunded.
