At these levels, our junior racers are provided the opportunity to test their ability at the regional, state, and possibly the national level with kids their own age.

The Junior Programs consist of four training groups; each with highly qualified USSCA, CSCF, and PSIA certified coaches. This is an elite training program, where we hope all young racers who enter our Intraclub program will someday participate.

Age Groups IncludeU10/U12, U14, U16, U18+. Many of our junior athletes have shown great success at the state, regional, and national level with many medals and top 10 finishes in all age groups.
