The British Ski Academy - BSA

The British Ski Academy provides a winter base for junior British racers aiming to achieve the highest standards in Alpine ski racing.

Trainees from seven to seventeen join us in the Chamonix valley for 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.

The level of individual attention and input is excellent. The UK's junior and senior national ski teams are mainly comprised of our current and former trainees.

Malcolm Erskine, BSA Programme Director:

In Les Houches, end of week contests will continue, and the coaches will ensure that every trainee receives a high level of attention to help oversee their development and progress. 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 programme with another effective tutorial team.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.

New families

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.

New racer families, visit contact page and get in touch. There is a lot of information on the pages here but we are more than happy to answer any questions over the phone.

2015/16 SEASON

At the end of June, that is, in a couple of weeks, we will make announcements on a major new sponsorship agreement and on staff and programme changes that will greatly enhance the BSA's role in British skiing and will be to the benefit of everyone involved. We will continue to train and host BASS races from our base in Les Houches. And we are delighted to have secured top Canadian coach, Kip Harrington, for the coming season as we continue to build a strong training team. It will be an exciting season.
