The Mount Southington Race Team
Prepare for racing in one of the finest racing programs in the East. The Mount Southington Race Team, a youth racing academy, gives a young skier the opportunity to enter the world of competitive alpine skiing. Our program is designed to be fun while helping young individuals develop physically, psychologically and socially. Staffed by our finest certified instructors, this Program is held at our prominent Jerry Donovan Alpine Training Center (JDATC).
The goal of our Mount Southington Race Team is to prepare the young skier for future racing competition. Each skier is placed in a class based upon age where the emphasis is not race results but achieving performance skills. These skills are achieved by the skiers and coaches working closely together throughout the season.
Our Race Team is open to skiers 6 to 20 years of age who are at ease skiing all of our trails, are able to ride a chairlift independently and are serious about developing their skills. Training begins with dryland training on November 17th and December 1st from 10am-12pm. Once the area opens, the racers hit Thunderbolt trail every Thursday evening from 6:30pm-9:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30am-1:30pm when they are not participating in a race. Training continues through early March. Special training hours are provided during school breaks.
It's not just training, it's fun. Coming with a friend. Meet new friends.
