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.  The 2012 British Alpine ski champions, TJ Baldwin and Alex Tilley, both trained extensively with the BSA at Mini, Children’s and rookie FIS level.

2013/14 Season

Dates confirmed for BASS and BSA hosted races: see Equity ISSC for Les Houches races in March, and see calendar for further race information.

2014 Overview

Malcolm Erskine, BSA Programme Director:
Our core team will remain largely un-changed for 2014, Ali and Scott continue their excellent work as BSA head girls’ and boys’ coaches, supported by Ruslan.

End of week contests 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.

Also, we will be entering our speediest, long-stay trainees in regular events against the best French children across Haute Savoie.

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.

The full BSA staff list will be published in the Autumn.
