Alley Cat Youth Racing 2020/21
Cataloochee racing is back for another season! This year the program will run a little different with options ranging from preseason training and racing during the season to just training and the possibility of trying one race. Clinics will take place twice a week and consist of one weekday afternoon in gates and one weekend morning to work on ski technique outside of the race course. Clinics will be held on the following days: December 2, 9, 16, 23 from 4-6 pm and December 6, 13, 20 from 9-11 am. Valid lift ticket and helmet required. Meeting location for these skills clinics will be outside the Kidz Ski & Ride Center, on the lower level of the group lodge.
If you are a returning veteran to Cataloochee racing, it will look a little different this year. We will no longer have middle school and high school race nights; we will be combining racing into Wednesday nights and grouping by age categories. Age groups will be as follows: 10-12, 13-15, 16-18. We have 100 total spots for middle schoolers and high schoolers combined.
If you are interested in racing, this is the program for you! In this program you can participate in preseason clinics and get your feet wet looking at a race course and trying it without having any timing. This program provides you with a lift ticket and access to clinics for the month of December 2 days a week. It also includes 3 Nastar Sundays that start in January. Nastar is a race open to the public that we run Sundays in January and February.
