Introduction

The Regional Series is a zone-based program intended to assist athletes in the transition from the Learn to Train stage of skill development to the Learn to Race stage. Another goal of the program is to provide a competitive series for 12 to 20 year old skiers, which requires less travel and time commitment than the Provincial U14 and U16 series.

The Regional Series program should also introduce children to ski specific mental and physical training, and continue to develop the technical skills learned in the Nancy Greene Ski League.

Regional Series athletes are welcome to attend AASA age group events such as legends club womens camp, speed camps, etc.
