U9 (Age 8 and younger)

Program Director: Jeff Jenkins
Lead Coach: Alex Ross
Coordinator: Eileen Radigan
Meets: 2 weekend days (Saturday 9-1:00 and Sunday 9-1:00)
Coaching: Races, Dryland Training and Christmas Camp

U9 racers are 8 years old or younger as of December 31, (unless you have been in BMRC previously, and get an exemption from the club for U10 status). 6 years old and younger will require approval before joining. The U9 program does not require NYSSRA or USSS membership and therefore does not offer any races to the athletes other than the BMRC Aloha Series races that will be offered to all BMRC athletes at Bristol Mountain throughout the season.  This program allows for inclusion in all preseason dryland training, the BMRC Christmas Camp, and regular training during the season on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.  Athletes that wish to join this program should be prior Bristol Mountain Forerunners participants, or able to comfortably ski the entire mountain.

See the USSS & NYSSRA Competition Guide for more details on the different levels and
rules for racing in New York State. There are also more details on the Resources page.
NOTE: All ages referenced above apply relative to age on 12/31/22
