Snow Sports NZ registered U14, U16 and First Year FIS athletes were invited to apply for selection for the development camp. Selection was based on athletes’ physical benchmark testing data, 2013/14 results and a letter of recommendation from a Club/Training provider or Programe Head Coach. 

“We received over 40 applications for the development camp and the selectors were extremely impressed by the quality of the applicants,” said Ian Mclean. 

The camp will focus on advancement (Giant Slalom/Slalom technique), enhancement (training using winning tactics and practices), progression, (train to train, train for success) and individual athlete evaluation. 

The Snow Sports NZ Junior Development Camp is funded by The Snowvision Foundation, a Charitable Trust which supports New Zealanders on snow. For further information: and
