​RACING
 

Racing is an available part of the program at all levels. We believe New Zealand offers the right mix of training conditions for effective tech progression and gives athletes the opportunity to participate in quality races with generally deep international fields. Development need, train to race ratio, injury considerations & competitive aspirations are the primary guiding variables for all race selection. 

NZ Top 10
 

1.       Professional coaching…experienced & passionate coaches giving loads of individual attention and a clear personalized individual game plan

2.       Venues…world class training venues 

3.       Snow…reliable winter snow conditions + access to watered lanes and the ability to prepare our training slopes  

4.       Weather…predictably good weather

5.       Terrain…from flat to medium consistent terrain @ Round Hill to varied & steep terrain @ Coronet Peak.  We train on the right terrain each for phase of the progression

6.       Racing…access to high quality u14-u16, FIS & Continental Cup races

7.       Volume…surface lifts at all of our chosen venues + our belief in a high volume training approach = quality, worthwhile and efficient training sessions

8.       Culture…the IR culture is based on respect, work ethic and an understanding of what it takes to be successful on the hill, and most importantly in life. The New Zealand culture is unique…they are definitely amongst the friendliest, accommodating and laid back people around 

9.       Physical training…3x daily physical training sessions per day (pre-hab, movement prep and post ski physical training on all training days **) 

10.     Benchmark…New Zealand has a strong international presence. Train and race along-side elite athletes from around the world.  At our training bases one can expect to see national teams from around the globe, as well as strong club & regional teams from all over. 

We believe
 

1.    In a whole athlete approach.We provide a structured, challenging and encouraging environment for all age groups.

2.    That mindset is the underlying foundation of success in sport and life

3.    That strong character development and Accountability are keys to growth as an athlete and young person

4.    In a high Volume of Training

5.    That athleticism is key to long term success…a good skier must be a good athlete

6.    In finding sustainable and practical solutions to athletic and scholastic development

7.    We believe in a system based approach to skill and tactical development
