High School Academy

When it comes to balancing ski racing and school, it’s not always easy.
For athletes who want to reach their maximum athletic potential while getting consistent, top-notch coaching and access to a flexible academic schedule, the QAST High School academy can provide the best of both worlds.
QAST has partnered with Wakatipu High School to allow our athletes to train full time while pursuing their academic goals. This long-established programme supports students to train on the mountain five days a week with teacher support to help maintain their academic studies after school.
Located in Frankton, Wakatipu High School offer athletes a high-performance academy catering to local and international athletes. For more information about Wakatipu High School click here

Speed Camp

Speed Camp is a week long camp for athletes U14 – U16 who wish to train, experience and race SUPER G. The NZYS Mt Hutt Super G races are held immediately after the camp. The camp includes accommodation, transport, Super G coaching, and space and has been estimated at $1,200 per athlete. To secure a place at the camp the fee of $1,200 is payable upon enrolment. When the exact cost of the camp has been confirmed the differential will be charged/refunded to the athletes account.

Note: The camp is for athletes only. Parents will be welcome to apply for one of the parent help positions. We believe it is important for the development of the athletes and team spirit that they attend this camp without parental support. Parents are welcome to attend the race series at Mt Hutt.
