Academy Sport - Ski Racing
Reed’s is one of the premier ski racing schools in Great Britain and is the school of choice for many exceptionally-talented young ski racers, providing them with the necessary support to allow them to realise their potential, receiving a first class education alongside the ski racing opportunities available.
The Ski Racing Programme not only provides dry slope and snow racing experience throughout the year but also fully supports pupils academically through the winter ski season whilst they are away from school training and racing on snow. Current students are regularly found on the podiums at British races and recent alumni have picked up top academic grades and appeared in World Cup and Olympic events.
We also assist in the planning of training and competition schedules, offer access to a tailored fitness development, monitoring and testing programme through our High Performance Programme and work in close partnership with many of the well-recognised race academies.
Reed’s ski racers have enjoyed amazing successes in recent years. They have won numerous age group and Open titles at County, Regional, English and British individual and team events. There have been frequent victories at the British Schoolboys’ and Schoolgirls’ Championships as well as the Inter Schools Ski Championships and the Canada Cup.
Ski Racing Achievements & Honours
Many of our pupils have been selected for National Ski teams and international races, including 5 pupils being selected to represent Team England at the World School Championships. They proudly represented Reed’s, England and Great Britain at events that ranged from France to Switzerland to Italy to Norway and Canada.
“I am continually impressed by the way in which our top skiers balance academic and skiing excellence. They work hard, train hard and ski faster!”
