An Academy racer

The Ford Sayre Academy is nationally recognized for its unique quality academy-style program integrated with a public school. Academy athletes are dedicated ski racers age 14 or older (U16, U19 and U21 athletes) who are interested in pursuing ski racing at all levels. Athletes may opt to train either part-time or full-time. Full-time athletes arrange their academic schedules so that they are dismissed at 12 noon, allowing them to travel and train during the day.  The FSA full-time athlete is required to keep up with his/her missed academic classes by hiring a tutor. This allows the student/athlete to achieve the highest individual academic and athletic goals. Racing calendars are dependent upon individual athletic goals and competitions are available in State, Regional, National and International races. Parents are required to work at certain home races throughout the season.
