Kandahar Racing will be attending the English Championships over the period 01 – 22 Feb 2020 in Bormio, Italy. SL, GS, SG and Combi races are available for U10, U12, U14, U16 and FIS 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 Bormio.


TRAINING & RACING

Our 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 and trainees can attend either or both blocks.

BLOCK 1: Training block 01 – 15 Feb 2020 or 08 - 15 Feb ( 1 week block)
This training block will provide a vital 2 week training period with afternoon academic tutor support for U10-U18 trainees looking to get some extra training on the race pistes in the lead up to the English Champs. This is an ideal opportunity to prepare well for the races while at the same time keeping up with schoolwork. Our qualified tutors will ensure a professional academic environment is created in order to allow our trainees to fully focus on their academic as well as athletic development. Ski training will be conducted each morning with afternoons dedicated to schoolwork. FIS athletes will also travel to nearby FIS races during this period.

BLOCK 2: Race week 15 – 22 Feb 2020.
Race support will be provided throughout this week at the English Championships for U10-U18 athletes. Training will be provided on any days in the programme that do not have a race in the schedule.
