ISF Winter Games Applications Now Open
Between April and June 2021 following some easing of COVID lockdown, ESSKIA has organised 7 training days for aspiring young ski racers. Each day was based around a 5 hour schedule, involving technical coaching, gate and stubbie practise and timed runs. The new ESSKIA online booking system for entries was greatly appreciated by both parents and Area Organisers.
Training Days were organised at Aldershot x2, Stoke x2, Brentwood, Gloucester and Swadlincote.
In total 198 athletes attended, a number limited by COVID restrictions on slope capacity.
Trainees ranged from Year 3 to Year 13 and they represented 45 different schools.
Each event was organised by one of ESSKIA’s Area Organisers and was staffed by our highly qualified team of ski race coaches.
The vast majority of the trainees attending the training events will be participating in the Area Qualifying events on September 18th/19th at 6 slopes around the country prior to The ESSKIA English Schools Finals at Norwich on 9th and 10th October.
