The BMA Junior Program is an official U.S. Ski and Snowboard member club offering weekday and weekend training/racing for alpine skiers ages 7-15. Our development program supports youth ski racing progression in a fun, healthy, and safe environment that fosters a life-long love of the sport.
The Junior Program utilizes a fundamentals-based ski curriculum; the goal is to create avenues for children to develop skills and habits that will engender future success both in ski racing and in other pursuits. Families provide the core strength of our Junior Program, and we rely on their volunteerism and support for our success.
Our program's core philosophy revolves around all-mountain skiing, skill acquisition, confidence in various conditions, and technique/technical discovery. The program also provides age and skill-appropriate gate training progressions in conjunction with directed, highly valuable free skiing, as there is a strong correlation between the volume of skiing as a young child and achievement at the high school level and beyond.
