Junior DevelopmentThe St. Paul Ski Club works to develop junior ski jumpers who are 17 years of age or younger. For decades, we have operated a Christmas Vacation Training Camp to introduce the sport and our club to new kids and their parents. We target younger kids who generally begin on our 10 – meter, or "Bunny Hill". The camp incorporates video taping and coaching on the basics of the sport, and culminates with a tournament where all participants are rewarded for their efforts.WinterOur winter season consists of weeknight training on all four jumps and a series of Friday night competitions, where all participants are rewarded regardless of how they place in the tournament. Results of these meets are compiled over the course of the season and all participants are again rewarded for their "Season Standings" at our annual Spring Awards Banquet.SummerThe summer season offers training on two of our jumps, the 20 and 46 meter hills which are equipped with plastic surfaces to simulate snow. The summer culminates with a fall Invitational Tournament that takes place in late summer. Visit our Schedule & Results page for updated information on this summer's program.
