The FreeRide skiing program is designed to introduce athletes 10-18 years old to the sport of FreeRide and to develop each athlete’s abilities to the fullest in a fun and safe environment. The FreeRide team will be broken into groups based on skills and competitive aspirations. If your child is under 10 years of age but has the desire, skill level and maturity level to participate in this program, please call or email the MARA office to discuss an arrangement. We will make every effort to satisfy each request while taking into consideration which program will best suit the needs of the athlete.
To ensure all participants are of the appropriate standard for training, all new team members will need to pass an ability assessment with a coach prior to joining their team. This is to guarantee all athletes are placed in groups appropriate for their development. Athletes under 10 years old may request admission to the FreeRide program pending ability assessment and coaches approval.
FreeRide team members will be required to have helmets and other FreeRide equipment approved by coaches. This is to ensure safety as a top priority for all members of the FreeRide Team
