Sébastien (Year 5) and Thomas (Year 6) have both been selected to join the England Schools Primary Squad training camp in Landgraaf – Holland.
As one of the youngest skiers to be selected, Seb and Thomas will travel to SnowWorld indoor ski centre in Landgraaf in April. The squad will be managed by experienced ESSKIA staff and coaching teams.
The aim of the camp is to provide athletes with a quality ‘on snow’ experience with national coaches who inspire them to future success. Many GB past and present team members had their first ‘on snow’ experiences with ESSKIA and these experiences certainly inspired them to develop further. Landgraaf provides a superb environment for both technical drills and slalom training and the coaches will focus on fun and enjoyment while developing Seb’s fundamental techniques which will enable future progression.
The training forms part of the process to select a squad to represent England and the NCSS at the ISF World Schools’ Championships, which will be an ambition for many schools’ athletes in future years.
