Speed Camp

(Description of 2017 Speed Camp)

The Speed Camp is a 2-day camp held at Sunday River in Newry, ME. This camp is an introduction to speed for U14 athletes (and U12 athletes by invitation only). This camp will take place at Sunday River's speed venue. We will focus on different elements to SG training such as movement over different terrain features, aerodynamic body positing, longer turn shape, and let's not forget going fast. This camp allows us to focus on all the elements of speed training in a safe but challenging environment.

Lodging and meals are not included in the camp. GSC will assess a $40 per athlete fee to cover coach lodging and meals. Registration for the training day and race can be accessed under the MARA (Main Alpine Race Association) website.
