FLITE Team Athletes Elissa Cole, Lexi Crotty and Wyatt Antkiewicz recently competed at the US Selections Mogul Event.
The U.S. Selection Events are held in December at the start of each season. The event is used to qualify skiers to start in NorAm competitions and possible starts in U.S. World Cups. Athletes invited for moguls or dual moguls will be granted starts in both moguls and dual moguls.
The 2016 U.S. Selection Events for Moguls and Dual Moguls were held from Dec. 16-22, 2016 in Winter Park, CO.
As a result, Lexi Crotty and Wyatt Antkiweicz secured spots on the NorAm Tour this season. They are very excited to get the opportunity to continue competing at the National and International level.
The NorAm tour is conducted for the top U.S. and Canadian development skiers, with additional positions for other foreign competitors. U.S. athletes are selected to compete in these events using the results from the U.S. Selection Events, previous season National Championships and Junior World Championships.
The mission of the NorAm tour is to aid in the preparation of athletes for World Cup Freestyle competition through the provision of high-quality training and competitive opportunities.
The 2016-2017 NorAm tour will be an exciting tour held at the following venues:
Killington, Vermont, Feb. 11-12
Val St Come, Quebec, Feb. 17-18
North Star, California, Feb. 25-26
Apex, British Columbia, March 4-5
This is the next step in the progression of our athletes as they aspire towards you the US Ski Team.
