Our Dream: The Sam Morse Faith And Ski Training Camp, otherwise known as FAST Camp, was born out of the need for holistic athlete development.
Our Purpose: To strengthen the skiing skills and faith of young ski racers through coaching and community.
Our Vision: 1 Timothy 4:8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
Our Motto: Ski Wicked F.A.S.T.
Sam Morse FAST Camp will be a weeklong ski training camp at Mt Hood Oregon in June 2021 aimed at U12-U16 aspiring ski racers. It will consist of all the best traditional aspects of a summer ski camp. We will be drill-focused to start and then progress into full length GS and SL course training. Video analysis and daily dryland will be an important aspect of our camp to foster improvement in our athletes. But we don’t stop there! Our mission is to not only make our athletes faster, but also to tune into that inner joy and peace that comes with knowing we are part of something bigger. Our aim is to integrate the whole aspect of our being; mind, body, and spirit. Race training by day and faith training by night!
