QAST Development Program

The QAST Development Program is our foundational program and is specifically designed to develop the base technique and skills necessary to become a competitive ski racer. The program provides a combination of terrain and environments to challenge the participants and help them build the confidence to participate in the sport. 

The 2-week program is held in the July school holidays at Coronet Peak and suitable for primary school aged children. The training program is overseen by the QAST Coaching Director in conjunction with the NZSki Race Department.

Once an athlete has completed the Development program they have the opportunity to apply for the follow-on QAST U10/U12 weekend programs.

Enrolments and further details for the QAST Development Program can be found on the NZSki website here.
