RTR Training Format 2022


Wednesday Race Training enhances skills already developed with a stronger focus on developing a ski racing technique. This session is for all abilities but has a greater focus on ski racing. The session develops your technique to enhance speed and introduces to a variety of ski racing experiences. Developing your slalom skiing to allow you to complete at regional and national level competitions is a strong focus in these sessions. The focus remains on technique, but this is developed both within set drill courses and through technique developing drills.
Three coaching groups consist of:

Training to train - Further general skill development whilst a strong focus remains on fun and participation. Introduction to how to train and race effectively.

Training to Complete - Major specific skill development. Focus on tactical and technical aspects of racing

Training to Win – Specific technical and tactical enhancement with a focus on using skills under competitive conditions.

Thursday Development Session has a strong emphasis on FUN, the session aims to develop basic FUNdamental movement upon which excellence can be built. To achieve this, we focus on the ABC’S – Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed Movement. The session aims to introduce basic yet comprehensive habits that allows skiers to develop lifelong skills. This session is a great opportunity to develop your basic skiing technique with a focus on all round skiing competency, however there is still an opportunity to develop some ski racing skills for those who wish to do so.

Which session is for me?

All RTR Club sessions aim to develop an individual’s skiing technique and ensure that if ever in the mountains you can maximise experience through becoming a competent skier who can ski any terrain competently and safely.

If you enjoy skiing through the stubbies or slalom poles and think ski racing is for you a then a Wednesday is for you. If you’re an existing ski racer wanting to further develop your speed and technique a Wednesday session is also for you.

If you’re a keen skier simply wanting to develop your technique for fun, a holiday or to come and have a weekly ski with friends or the family then a Thursday is for you. If you’re interested in what ski racing is and wanting some further experience, then come along to a Thursday session.
