The Home Nations Snowsports Governing Bodies and GB Snowsport is pleased to formally announce two Alpine Pathway Programmes that will be available for UK athletes to be part of next winter.
Registration forms and entry criteria guidance will be sent out later this month, inviting athletes to apply to be selected into GB Alpine Pathway U16 and FIS training squads.
Training squad (part-time) programmes will offer athletes a series of Europe snow-camps, regular squad training, fitness sessions and off-snow athlete support workshops.
We look forward to launching these new programmes in 2021 and working together to deliver an alpine programme that supports more athletes to get ready to perform on the world stage.
GB Snowsport CEO, Vicky Gosling says:
“It is great to be working closely with the Home Nations on these Pathway Programme’s. We need to ensure that we combine all our knowledge and work forces as one snowsport community so that we can provide the best possible programmes for the future Olympians and Paralympians.”
Snowsport England CEO, Tim Fawke says:
“It is great to be working collaboratively with the other Home Nations and GB Snowsport to develop the Alpine pathway. By working together, we can align the pathway with GB Snowsport and provide the best support for athletes to reach their potential. “
