Speedys Camp Misson:

Through his many years of coaching, Camp Director, Mark Archer, aka, Speedy understands the importance of off-­‐season ski camps to develop skiers technical and tactical ski set, using varied terrain with proven course sets that enhance a ski racers development. Speedys Ski camps combines those on hill training progressions with conditioning the skier’s mind and body in preparation for the upcoming and future race seasons. Speedy’s training methods provide a planned progression through an intense, high-­‐level, and proven training program. Speedy’s staff is made up of experienced, USSA fully certified, seasoned professional coaches that coach full-­‐time year around, and truly passionate about their profession.

Speedy’s SkiCamp is not your average cookie cutter, one size fits all ski racing camp. Each session’s coaching staff and training program is assessed and assigned according to ability level. This means that the U21-­‐16′s are not working on the same technical and speed fundamentals and gate training progressions that the U14-­‐10′s are. Each has their own coach, directed ability level learning and training focus using varied terrain in association with strong gate and drill course sets. The profound success of these training programs are realized with well-­‐balanced coach directed free-­‐skiing progressions while utilizing our private salted training lanes for optimal Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Super G gate training for our athletes.

Athletes will attend “classroom” off hill discussions to promote ski tuning, nutrition and mental conditioning. Video review will done on a athlete coach 1 -­‐ 1 personal level, not in a group session. Thus providing a better learning atmosphere during each video session providing athletes their own personal technical and tactical skill level critique each video session. Speedy’s Ski Camps designs there daily training program to suit each and every athlete’s real technical, tactical, mental, and physical needs while keeping the fun factor into each training session, no matter what the age and/or skill level they bring to camp, giving them a new level of technical and tactical skills needed to be at the top of their game for this coming season and beyond.
