Race Academy – professional development junior skiers
Switzerland is currently the best skiing nation in the world and wishes to remain so! By providing professional development for children from an early age, we are forming a solid foundation for the future of our junior skiers.
In our Race Academy, we train various groups of children and adolescents in diverse and needs-oriented ways. This ensures we fulfil our ambitious objective of not only training our national skiing talent quickly but also making them versatile skiers. In doing this we never lose sight of the joy of taking part in snow sports in the mountains.
Schi Chindsgi – the youngest skiers
This is where the youngest skiers find their way into snow sports. We begin with fundamentals such as skiing and braking, turn techniques and small jumps. They discover and try out what they can do on skis in snow, learning and improving their coordination skills by play. Following the tuition plan produced by Swiss Snowsports and Swiss Ski, the students individual progress is recorded and rewarded. They complete in the first ski races of their early skiing careers here.

The foundations for skiing are laid in the summer. At the same time, children have the opportunity to try various different types of sport and in this way continuously improve their capabilities. The child is not forced into making a decision to concentrate on a particular type of sport, but can train in various ways and thus become a better skier in the winter. The training takes place in Upper Toggenburg and is provided by trained children’s sports instructors and experts. The training plan includes cycling, in-line skating, riding on pump tracks, bouldering, tennis, specific running exercises, short hikes and much more.
