Shooting Stars

5 & 6-year-olds

Program Overview

The Shooting Stars Program caters to the youngest DPST skiers, designed specifically for intermediate-level skiers rather than beginners. Participants must exhibit skiing independence, possessing at least one season of skiing or ski lessons. Proficiency in skiing green runs and beginner blue terrain is necessary. Additionally, Shooting Star Athletes should demonstrate the ability to follow instructions attentively.

This program offers a nurturing and secure environment for athletes to develop fundamental skiing skills while emphasizing team building, fun, skill enhancement, and exploration. Athletes engage in fun events, like dress-up days and the "Mighty Mites World Cup," offering a taste of alpine racing structure while enhancing skills and fostering exploration.

Our energetic, educated, and engaged coaches foster a learning environment that supports lifelong learning. The program's ultimate objective is to prepare athletes for graduation into the Mighty Mite Program.

Shooting Star Athletes undergo assessment by the Head Coach before program acceptance.

Program Schedule

The Shooting Stars program spans 10 weeks, running annually from January to March throughout the winter season. Participants can choose between two registration options: a weekend-only package or a 3-day option, which includes weekends and one weekday afternoon, ideal for local athletes with early school release. Additionally, exclusive 3-day holiday camps during Christmas and New Year's breaks are accessible solely to registered Shooting Stars.

For detailed information regarding dates and pricing, please refer to the registration page.

Required Equipment

Families are responsible for providing the necessary equipment for the program, including one pair of All Mountain Skis with a length recommended between chin to forehead, snug-fit boots, helmet, goggles, waterproof gloves, ski pants, and appropriate layers.

The Diamond Peak Ski Team offers team jackets available through a seasonal lease or purchase program, while athletes under 51 inches tall can use DPST Kinderlift vests provided for the season. It's advised that athletes and families consult with coaches regarding equipment to ensure proper sizing before purchasing, and all gear must be approved by coaches prior to on-snow training sessions.
