GRPSki, Biathlon and U23 Training programs all accepting applications for the ’23-24 training year

 

The Craftsbury Green Racing Project (GRP) Ski & Biathlon teams are now accepting applications for the 2023-24 training year as well as for their summer U23 training programs. Applications will be due by end of day March 31 and decisions will be made by April 15.

GRP is looking for skiers and biathletes who have shown good ski speed over the past couple years. Skiers who have not yet tried biathlon will be given the opportunity if they’re interested.

In exchange for coaching, use of training facilities and travel support, GRP year-round and summer U23 athletes are asked to do work that contributes to the mission and operation of the Center. Projects include coaching youth and masters in skiing, biathlon, and mountain biking; managing and improving the trail system; growing vegetables for the Dining Hall; organizing events and programs at the Center; assisting the Communications Team with writing, blogging and social media.

If this sounds like work you would enjoy, while taking your skiing and/or biathlon to the next level, then you may be a good fit. There are both on-campus and off-campus program options. The off-campus option allows more flexibility for an athlete who wishes to find their own housing, work a remote or in-person job away from the Center, and not do as much work at the Center.

Read more about the team at their website: www.greenracingproject.com. The application is available here for year-round, residential training and you will find FAQs for biathlon and skiing. Any remaining questions may be addressed to grpski@craftsbury.com and grpbiathlon@craftsbury.com.

Find information and application here for the summer GRPSki U23 program.

Athletes applying, or thinking of applying, should email and schedule Facetime or a Zoom call with Pepa or Mike. Contact Pepa at the grpski@craftsbury.com address or call 802-586-7767 ext 343.

Biathletes may address questions to Coach Mike Gibson at grpbiathlon@craftsbry.com.
