Founded in 1985 by a group of Kirkwood community leaders, the Kirkwood Ski Education Foundation (KSEF) was built to support the development of youth alpine ski racing in the Kirkwood valley. The KSEF mission is to provide alpine ski racing programs that promote a healthy lifestyle, instills a winning spirit and a love of mountain snow sports, through professional athletic skill development. We are in our 29th year of operation and are proud to continue to fulfill this mission. Read more about our Mission & Values.
Our program offers on hill alpine race coaching for youth and masters athletes, with weekly training (Friday – Sunday) and Holidays. Our 2013-14 program starts on November 23rd and runs through April of 2014. Our athletes compete in United States Ski Association (USSA) sanctioned (Far West and FIS) races, and Tahoe League races.
Through the years one of our major points of differentiation has been our outstanding coaching staff. We continue to provide a low coach to athlete ratios, and the combined experience of our staff exceeds 50 years with coaching and building ski team programs. They are 100% focused on each athlete’s success. Read more about our Coaching Staff.
