The U.S. men's alpine ski racing Head Coach Sasha Rearick has assembled a world class team of coaches and conditioners for the 2014 Audi FIS Alpine World Cup and Sochi Olympic Winter Games season.
Notable additions include adding a World Cup Multi Team comprised of overall skiers Ted Ligety (Park City, UT) and Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) that will be led by veteran coach Forest Carey. "Ted had an amazing season last year and for him to continue to improve is critical," said Head Coach Rearick.
Rearick also announced the addition of two new coaches to the men's speed program and a combined World Cup technical and World Cup B training group led by Bernd Brunner. "With the speed side, we made some big changes last year and now we're seeing the momentum move in the right direction, but we still needed to step up," said Rearick.
All new coaches will complete the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Sports Science internship program this summer to ensure their athletes have the proper training and conditioning plans for peak performance throughout the season.
The Team will utilize training in New Zealand and Chile, along with on snow training at official U.S. Ski Team training partners the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain, Mammoth Mountain and Soelden in addition to conditioning camps at the Center of Excellence in the lead up to the 2014 Olympic season.
