The Ability Program works specifically with the athlete committed to excellence, training, and dedication to the sport of alpine ski racing. Focus will be directed towards personal ownership and responsibility for skill acquisition, commitment to the competitive athlete pipeline and race calendar, while training up to six days a week on snow, starting preseason, and concluding in May. Training, team travel, racing and speed projects will support the RMD calendar, in which EMSC will be in attendance at all events. Individual goal setting, training/competition objectives, and calendar management will focus specifically on the individual’s strengths, areas of improvement, skill set and overall goals for the program. The EMSC Ability program is a stepping stone to continued FIS completion, attendance at upper level Regional/Divisional Projects, and future participation with the EMSC Elite Team PG Program.
