Freestyle > A Mogul Team
A Mogul Team (ages 14 and up)
*Age* 14+, though mainly dependent upon ability/experience.
*Goal* To enter into a more serious level of training and competition in mogul skiing; to refine and perfect the mogul turning, edging, absorbing, extending, body positioning and jumping skills introduced at the B mogul level; to learn and compete with more technical air maneuvers; to accumulate points on the USSA Eastern and National points lists, ultimately qualifying for Invitational Championship events; and to have fun while being part of the team.
*Competition* Skiers compete in USSA Eastern Championship Series A level mogul and dual mogul competitions throughout New England, ultimately aimed at qualification for Eastern Championships and Junior Olympics (must hold USSA competitor’s license).
*Travel* Plan on traveling to 8 competitions, all over New England, throughout the season. Often leaving on a Thursday night and returning on a Sunday. Travel logistics/supervision handled and coordinated by Head Mogul Coach/Program Director.
*Prerequisites* Generally speaking, one is ready for the ‘A’ circuit after a solid top-ten performance at ‘B’ mogul Eastern Championships. Enrollment at Okemo Mountain School, for at least a 6 week Target Term, is highly recommended. Athletes should be prepared and excited for a more serious level of training and competing than at the ‘B’ level.
