Racing

Mount Martin Ski Club offers an exciting and challenging ski racing program for children 6 to 16.  MMSC is a member of the Upper Ottawa Valley Ski Zone (UOVSZ) which offers opportunities for friendly competition within the Valley.  MMSC has also offered Adult Racing for those 19+ on weekday evenings for those club members looking to take their skills to a new level.

Katie Hogue will take over the role of Race Director and Head Coach for the 2018 season!

Katie will be completing her CSCF certification this season and she will be supported by Heather Tumber and other parent and community volunteers.

A tentative schedule has been worked out for MMSC and in coordination with the Petawawa Ski and Snowboard Club.  The regular season will begin January 13th, 2018 at 2:00pm for training and our first race on Sunday January 21st, 2018!  The season will include 4 local UOVSZ (Upper Ottawa Valley Ski Zone) races distributed between PSSC and MMSC, an optional away training and family ski day at Antoine as well as the opportunity to race at a larger hill – Pakenham.

 

The Nancy Greene League is a fun team racing activity for young skiers up to age 12 as of December 31.  Saturday lessons will emphasize racing technique as well as basic skills instruction.  This training and instruction is included in the racing fee and so there is no need to sign up for other instruction in addition to the Nancy Greene program.  Most races are held on Sundays. Participation at the races is very important in building our team, and team medals are awarded considering both participation and overall team technical results.

The Patterson (Senior) Racing  series is a racing program open to skiers from 12 to 16 years of age as of December 31.  Skiers compete as individuals and as a team.  Racing instruction and coaching (included in the fee) are offered on Saturdays in Deep River.  Races will be held in conjunction with the Nancy Greene league, at the various local and regional hills.  Individual medals are awarded as well as overall team medals.

To enroll in the racing program the UOVSZ waiver form must be submitted before the first race.  This form is distributed to racers at the start of the season.

Nancy Greene Racing (ages 6 – 12) ~ $125.00 (includes fees)

Patterson Racing (ages 12 – 16) ~ $125.00 (includes fees)

Adult Racing (ages 19+) ~ please contact Katie Hogue so that we can gauge the interest

Mount Martin Ski Club holds local club championship races for skiing and snowboarding at the end of the season for all members!  Trophies and medals are awarded for boys and girls up to age 16 and to the Masters.  This is a great way to try out racing and see if it’s for you and your family.  Racing on the MMSC team is an excellent way to improve technique and visit some of the other community hills in the Ottawa Valley for a little variety.
