Description

The DXC junior program offers a comprehensive and individualized year-round training program for high school aged athletes looking to take their skiing to the next level. DXC skiers aim to qualify for the New Hampshire U16 and Eastern High School Championship teams, as well as the New England Junior National Team. DXC graduates have gone on to race for Division I college teams, including Middlebury, Williams, Colby, St. Lawrence and UNH.

Our program supplements and works in conjunction with high school teams, and is designed to allow athletes to continue to ski with their high school team in a way that they (and their coaches) see fit. While DXC athletes may attend the Dublin School, DXC is a regional club, and as such includes public school, private school, and home-schooled students, and is distinct from the Dublin School’s high school team.
If you are considering joining a DXC Junior Program for the first time, please contact Coach Kathy Maddock (kathy@dublinxc.com) prior to signing up.
