British Ski Championships
Tignes, France | 22 Mar – 15 Apr 2017
Kandahar Racing will be attending the Delancey British National Championships over the period 22 Mar – 15 Apr 2017 in Tignes, France. SL, GS, SG and Combi races are available for U10, U12, U14 & U16 athletes. Our management team will provide trainees with the highest standards of professional ski race coaching, race support, academic tutoring and pastoral care during our time in Tignes.
Training & Racing
Our Easter programme in Tignes, France caters for young skiers brand new to competitive snowsports, through to experienced athletes with national team aspirations. It is split into 3 distinct blocks:
WEEK 1 |Training block 22 – 31 Mar 2017.
This training block will provide a vital 10 day training period with afternoon academic tutor support for U10-U16 trainees looking to get some extra training in the lead up to the biggest races of the year. This is an ideal opportunity to prepare well for the races while at the same time keeping up with schoolwork. Our qualified tutor will ensure a professional academic environment is created every afternoon in order to allow our trainees to fully focus on their academic development.
WEEK 2 | Race week 01 – 08 Apr 2017.
Race support will be provided throughout this week for the British National Children’s Championships for U10-U16 athletes. Training will be provided on any days in the programme that do not have a race in the schedule.
WEEK 3 | Training week 08 – 15 Apr 2017.
This will be a ‘racer taster’ introductory week for those new to ski racing and it will also be an opportunity for our existing trainees to receive some late season gate training in the great weather and snow conditions Tignes has to offer, thus setting them up perfectly ahead of season 2017/18. We’ll also combine our gate training with afternoon’s of Ski Cross, Freeride and all mountain skiing.
Matt Shepherd will be the camp manager and the coaching team will be Sam Liddell, Eilidh McLeod, Dan Poth, Russ Bennett & Kate Smith. Our tutor Alison Mowbray will be the pastoral and academic lead.
