Freestyle > Fresh Start Freestylers Program

Fresh STart FreeSTylers PROGRAM (Age 8-12)

Goal

To introduce younger skiers to meeting and learning in a weekly, non-competitive team format with friends; to learn the correct body position, turning, edging, absorbing and extending and safe jumping skills necessary to be a successful freestyle competitor; to be confident and prepared enough to, by February, compete in their first mogul competition at Okemo; and to have fun while being part of the team.

Competition

While Fresh Start is a non-competitive program, a successful season will culminate in the athlete entering their first-ever mogul competition in the comfort of the “home court,” the Okemo B Mogul Competition on Presidents’ Weekend.

Travel

There is no travel involved with this program.

Prerequisites

Skiers should have the motivation to get out on the mountain each day, want to have fun, want to learn how to ski a variety of terrain, mainly moguls, with good form and want to jump. A solid all-mountain skiing base, parallel turns and a good attitude!
