Team ATC is an intensive Alpine training programme for young athletes aged 12 to 17 years old. The structure and coaching maximises training and racing during the school holidays. We offer the these selected racers smaller coach to athletes ratios and world class coaching. The Team ATC programme accelerates progress and offers a clear pathway from Under 12 year through to and including FIS age Junior athletes.
Over the years this programme has produced some of Britain’s best young talent and many young racers have represented Team GB on the international stage. We have alumni at all levels of the British Ski Team and you will find ATC racers competing in some of the world leading ski academies in Canada, Sweden, New Zealand and North America.
Olympians Sean Langmuir and Andy Freshwater lead the Team ATC race programme. Both former National Team coaches and athletes who have not only raced but also coached at the highest level in the sport. Our lead team ATC coaches are Meghan Costello (U16) from the USA and Sofia Morton (U14) from England. Both are nationally and internationally qualified coaches who have a wealth of knowledge and coaching experience. Most importantly they are particularly skilled at developing, challenging young athletes, improving their performance and making sure the kids have a great time along the way.
As well as ATC main camp weeks, Andy and I will be running some educational support weeks mid-season in the Port du Soleil (one hour from Geneva).
ATC is a not for profit organisation with charity status. We offer financial support by reducing the weekly fees for Team ATC racers. ATC work closely with the Alpine community and many of our sponsors have close ties and history with ski racing and the mountains. We share a common vision that racing and training with ATC provides a effective and fun vehicle to help create talented ski racers and amazing people.
