The National Championships, the best of the best in the nation competing for top spot. These races are a cornerstone to National Team selection and nomination for international races. Spring time in the French Alps is warm and sunny with hard snow in the mornings getting softer in the afternoons so the races start early.
We encourage racers U16 and U14 to live in if at all possible. There is so much extra help and support available to live in athlets from ski tuning and fitness to metal toughness training and video analysis.
We have very limited spaces for the live in option on both weeks so if you would like to stay with ATC then please book early. Remember you need sub 400 points in one discipline to race at the British if you are U14 U16. No qualification needed in U12 and U10. We suggest that under 12s be accompanied by their parents if this is their first camp with ATC.

Goals of the Camp
On Snow: We hit the slopes early for the training and racing week. We book a private training piste in resort where we get a faster turn around. Afternoon skiing is a little softer snow so we tend to do a few runs in the gates then have some fun free skiing around resort. During the training days we will focus our attention on fine tuning technical areas and getting used to skiing longer courses under race conditions.
Off snow: Our focus will be equally shared between fitness, stretching and active recovery. Time will be spent tuning their skis, under supervision of the coaches.
For U14 and U16 there is a National SL, GS and SG as well as a fun Parallel SL for everyone. These races are British seeded (BASS) races and results from the British Championships are the main factor included as selection for the British U16 and U14 Teams.
For the U12s there is a GS and Combi.
GBR race entries and information can be found on the GBSKI website and the FIS programme can be found at GB Ski website.
We will have an accompanying adult on these flights. Please meet us at the Easyjet check in desk 2 hours before departure, check in your bags as soon as you arrive.
