Kandahar Racing will be attending the Delancey British National Championships over the period 14 Mar – 07 Apr 2018. SL, GS, SG, DH and Combi races are available for U10 – FIS athletes. Our management team will provide trainees with the highest standards of professional ski race coaching, race support, academic tutoring and pastoral care.
** Dates and locations are provisional until championship details are confirmed by BSS.
Training & Racing
Our Easter programme caters for young skiers brand new to competitive snowsports, through to experienced athletes with national team aspirations. It is split into 2 distinct blocks:
BLOCK 1 | 14 – 30 Mar 2018.
This block will provide a vital training period with afternoon academic tutor support for U10-FIS 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. This block will include the British Championships race week for FIS athletes.
BLOCK 2 | 31 Mar – 07 Apr 2018.
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.
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.
Those wishing to attend the camp as inlyers must commit to the complete blocks 1, 2 or both. Those attending as outliers are welcome to dip in and out of our programme for a daily training / race support fee of £75pppd. The block 1 training period begins immediately after the Inter-Schools Ski Championships and a limited amount of transport will be available from Pila to Tignes.
Accommodation & Costs
All inlyers will be accommodated at the l’Ecrin des Neiges apartments which are ideally located at the bottom of the Val Claret race piste. The inlier costs are inclusive of accommodation, full board catering, lift pass, activities, airport transfer and training fees. Breakfast, dinner, ski prep and classroom lessons will take place at the Hotel Diva. Flights and equipment hire are not included. The outlyer fee of £75pppd covers race support / training only.
All racers taking part in the Delancey British National Championships must arrange and pay for their own race entries, this cannot be done centrally by Kandahar Racing. Race entries can be made online or by post closer to the time.
Flights to all airports near the Alps are expensive during the Easter break and can become fully booked very quickly, therefore we advise all parents to book flights for their children as soon as the travel details are advertised. EasyJet have not yet released Easter 2018 flight schedules, as soon as they are confirmed Kandahar Racing will advertise our travel details. Please do not book any flights until you have submitted your online booking and had your place on the camp confirmed.
Places on our British Champs programme are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so please book early to avoid disappointment. The deadline is Thurs 01 Feb 2018 by which time full payment must be received in order to secure your place. Upon receipt of online applications – acceptance confirmation, travel details and invoices (inc payment instructions) will be distributed.
