IPC Alpine Skiing youth race Chile © • NPC Chile
In 2014-15, World Para Alpine Skiing has begun to organise and implement a whole new calendar of youth races for snowboard and alpine skiing around the world, and for all impairment groups.
The World Para Alpine Skiing and World Para Snowboard Sport Technical Committees (STC) aim to provide support to development camps through different levels and fields:
1. Technical support of development camp organisation
2. Providing support on-snow
3. Education sessions
4. Knowledge in development camp organisation.
These events not only give athletes the opportunity to learn new skills on the snow, but also incorporate education in media, training, anti-doping, competitive spirit and the Paralympic Movement.
The full calendar for 2016-17 can be found below.
You can follow updates from the World Para Alpine Skiing youth and development programme on Facebook at IPC Snow Youth.
