U16+ athletes are still working on skill and tactical development, but now are full throttle on competition and competing. These athletes are ranked within the US Ski and Snowboarding system of National points. Athlete results at each event are calculated and ranked for each disicpline and provide ranking for race starts, and access/ invitation to projects and events.

Athletes in this age group will have an opportunity to race in FIS (Federation International Ski) series races. This is the level where results within a FIS point system gauge athletes internationally. Program Directors and Head Coaches can give you more information on this within your clubs.

At this age, athlete management from home programs is paramount! The balance of training to racing becomes a key to continue athlete development and success.

A link (Alpine Training System) is posted on the 'Youth Development' tab. Please take time to look at this; it will help with the understanding of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD).
