2016/17 Season Highlights

Dodge Ridge Race Team Philosophy


The Dodge Ridge Race Team focus is to develop our athletes with the intention of building a strong race program. Coaches will train racers to compete successfully on all snow conditions and on all terrain. Our coaching staff believes racers will develop strong racing skills by free skiing, drills; terrain based skiing and gate training. Our goal is to develop athletes with a strong skiing ability, which will be used and enjoyed for a lifetime.


Try Out Process

Try outs will be held for all teams on the first day of training. During this process, coaches will evaluate the basic skiing skills of the athletes to ensure that they are within the range of the group. If required, changes to the child’s enrollment can be made after this review, options will be discussed with parents on an individual basis.


The most important goal of the Dodge Ridge Race Team Coaches is to help the racers develop socially, mentally and physically. The coaches will take a positive approach and strive to establish an optimum training environment. Training will included a variety of training methods and conditions. Combinations of free skiing, practice drills and gate training will be used by the coaches throughout the season in a way to best suit the development of each team, age group and skill level. Come prepared wearing your uniform, your personal protective equipment, your ski equipment in top condition, and your season pass. Helmets are required.
