The British Ski Academy - BSA
The British Ski Academy provides a winter base with highly experience race coaches to support and encourage junior British racers aiming to achieve the highest standards in Alpine ski racing.
Trainees from seven to nineteen join us for training camps throughout the year in the Alps, and now the Rockies. Since 1996 we have operated tailored school and ski programmes lasting from a few weeks to the whole winter. The younger racers frequently live out and many students have their first experience of race training with the BSA.
Season arrangements are now in place for 2017. With ski passes organised and a warm welcome received to the Aosta Valley and our new winter base, the Hotel Miage. For more information on recent events in the Alps see our blog / facebook page, links top right panel.
Summer and October Race camps now booking
We are now booking for all training from 11 July 2016 through to end of next season, 15 April 2017. A simplified, "schedule" for snow camp entries is attached to the 2017 registration form, please return to confirm places through pre-season training.
Malcolm Erskine, BSA Programme Director:
During the main season in the Aosta Valley end of week races will decide groups for the following week, and the coaches will ensure that every trainee receives a high level of attention. Each coach will be responsible for the ski and fitness training, video work and ski prep of their main group, and host video sessions attended by other coaches to ensure a range of input as well as continuity.
On the schooling side Brendan McCormick continues to deliver a strong tutorial programme. We continue to hear reports of students returning to school with improved grades. This demonstrates that with hard work children can excel at both sport and school.
Our aim has always been to raise the standard of UK junior ski race training. Any competitive young British racer willing to work hard will find the British Ski Academy ready to make a serious difference helping them to fulfil their dreams.
