2014-15 Sonics Race Team
The Sonics meet every Saturday (and some Sundays) from 10:00 am-12:00 pm (December – March) at the Training Center. Kids must already know how to classic ski and it really helps if they know the basics of skate skiing. The team trains on the same day and time as the Super Sliders. New this season there are additional days when the Sonics meet that the Sliders do not. The Sonics also occasionally ski at other ski areas including an optional weekend trip to Mammoth to race. The practices at other areas and the weekend trip will have additional costs to cover trail passes and travel costs. The Sonics team includes coaching at all of the ASC Training Center races plus other races TBA. The team is led by PSIA Level 3 instructor/ Coach Bill Aaron. Both Classic & Skating skills are taught with the goal of mastering skills and becoming faster racers….. maybe even a Junior Nationals athlete in a few years. Fun for the whole family - We rely on everyone’s help to make this program and your child’s experience successful. We require all parents to help in some way during the season – whether it is coaching if you have the skills, or making the hot chocolate, baking cookies, or running the sign in table etc. New families – if you are not sure you are ready to commit – come to any of our sessions before the middle of January for a $25 trial fee. The $25 will be applied to your annual fees if you enroll.
