    Also known as Scottish Junior Alpine Development Group (SJADG), this is for anyone in Junior 1 or 2 who wants to keep ski racing. You may have completed CH2 but that is just the start..........


    Home and Abroad – we organise weekend and midterm training and race cover in Scotland and camps in Europe and further afield – traditionally we have organised a camp in Tignes in October; variety of places at Christmas including Norway, Austria, USA and Meribel in Easter for the national championships.


    We believe it is really important to encourage everyone to keep training and developing after you have left Children’s races. You will find that FIS races are different and therefore the training and coaching is geared to helping you make the transition between children’s racing and FIS races – the coaches are experienced with Junior racers – they know the circuit and they know how best to prepare you and get you into FIS races (as best as they can!) and fulfil your potential at this level.

    This not only gives Junior racers the opportunity to continue with ski racing; to learn the skills and gain the experience to compete at this level; but also the opportunity to train alongside the national team. All of this serves as an excellent development pathway toward consideration for team selection and has resulted in some trainees becoming full time members of the team.

    It is not all hard work!!!


    You need to become a SJADG member – it is really easy. The form is at the end of this text and for £25 you can become a member which gives you access to all the camps, training and resources that SJADG can offer.


    SJADG is run by a committee according the rules established in its constitution - the committee members are volunteers – usually parents of racers or ex racers who have a lot of experience and knowledge about running training camps and racing. The committee has an AGM in May and office bearers are elected. Throughout the year the committee meets to discuss, organise events and plan camps and other activities.

    The coaches work closely with the committee to make sure that what we offer trainees meets the need of the individuals and gets them access to appropriate training and races. They often work alongside the national team sharing lanes and training resources here in Scotland and in Europe.

    Currently the committee members are:

    Chair: Munro Anderson
    Secretary: David MacWilliam
    Treasurer : Ann Huntington
    Membership Secretary: Kay Ferrier
    Members: Liz Rofe, Jane Rahill
    Athlete's Representative: Miriam Hunsley


    Visit the website - (website in progress)
    Join the Facebook page -

    Talk to some of the trainees – many of you will know them and they can be spotted by brightly coloured hoodies.

    Email the membership convenor of the committee – Kay Ferrier


    If you are not ready to join just yet please fill in the membership form and send back to us via Kay – and we will be back in touch after we have made our plans for 2013/2014 and we can get you involved! Then your skis could be in this pile!
