At the end of U16, dedicated racers move up to FIS u19 and get an international racer ID with the FIS (Federation Internationale de Ski). Consequently these racers are often referred to as FIS racers.
Year round training camps as well as physical training programs are offered to support the athlete’s individual goals. U19 FIS racers (aged 16-18) may race at; zone races, open races, national races and international races, depending on their commitment to racing, and their world ranking. U19 FIS racers who are committed to ski racing may move on to the U21 level (ages 19-21) and these athletes will participate in training throughout the whole year, often with the goal of making the Provincial or National Teams or to qualify for an athletic scholarship offered by some US Universities.
The higher level of training may require some adjustment to school plans.
