The development of general physical fitness is a necessary component for elite ski racing athletes. Establishing
efficient fundamental movement patterns, learning motor control in a variety of situations and positions, and
developing general strength, power and capacity is critical for young skiers and snowboarders. These variables
can contribute directly to long-term sporting success, and the assessment and quantification of these qualities by
using SkillsQuest-Fitness can help to identify potential performance deficits, as well as track long term
performance trends. As US Ski & Snowboard builds normative data for each gender and phase of development,
SkillsQuest-Fitness will help to identify target areas for later success and development as elite athletes.
A coach can use the data gathered from SkillsQuest-Fitness to more accurately determine an athlete’s “starting
point” along the developmental continuum and track subsequent progress through re-evaluation. This will allow
the construction of an appropriate training program that matches the needs of the athlete, both in the context of
their sport or event as well as within the athlete’s capabilities.
