PROGRAM INFO 24/25

SCHEDULE:

LIT is based in Europe from approximately December 1st through April 7th. Athletes have about a 10-day break at the end of December and are given the opportunity to travel home. There is also a weeklong break in February, which is necessary for peaking strategies and season-long success.

Overview of groups

For the 2024-25 season, we will have 2-3 groups – it depends how many athletes' academy will have. Each group will have approximately 4 athletes with one designated coach. LIT owner Chris will be more around Elite FIS group, but as an owner, he will keep an eye over the groups to make sure the LIT methods, in regard to technical and tactical views, are being met. The group descriptions and qualifications are as follows, although we look at all athletes on skiing skills first, not just FIS points.

Academy is focused on both technical disciplines, SL & GS, adding SG as a help to pass the speed barrier with other two disciplines.

JUNIOR FIS level (YOB 2008-2004) U18 & U21

Qualification: First year FIS with success at their respective national level and FIS juniors with FIS points below 100 (according to the 21st FIS point list 2023-24)

Junior FIS athletes will compete mostly at National Junior Races in Italy and other nearby countries such as Slovenia (FIS), Austria (NJR) and France (NC, NJC). In the 2023-24 season there were over 60 NJR races scheduled just in Italy - at our region, so there are plenty of opportunities to compete in NJR races throughout Europe. Since our base is in Italy - Soraga di Fassa (Val di Fassa), there are plenty NJR races around this area, we would like to take opportunity and race here as much as possible (Pozza di Fassa, San Pellegrino, Alleghe, Carezza, Pampeago, Nova Ponente).
 

LIT B-Team (min. 4 athletes) 

Qualification: Athletes with higher FIS pointsFIS points above 100

 

The primary focus for this group would be more free skiing with drills involved at the beginning at our preparation camps and to get a good fundamentals for the racing season. They will have a good opportunity to join the better ranked groups in our team and lower their points at NJR races – National Junior Races in Italy and nearby countries.
