SkillsQuest and Development

Presented by Jon Nolting

SkillsQuest is a cornerstone program designed to motivate and reward athletes in working toward and improving abilities in the key areas of emphasis of the ATS. As its name implies, it represents a quest, or journey, toward success in ski racing, by focusing on skills, the critical components that make up a high performing athlete. It includes activities and competencies for skills, technique and tactics, conditioning, equipment preparation, performance psychology and athlete management. The program, unrolled for alpine in 2013, is being created for each of the USSA’s sports.
