Originally founded in 1978, the Cooper Spur Race Team has provided the community with a program designed to develop youth ski racing.  CSRT offers programs for children ranging in age 5 through 15, and provides opportunities to children who have the desire to train and compete in the sport of ski racing.  We offer local youth the opportunity to experience structured physical activity in winter sports, with highly experienced coaches who are dedicated to helping racers at all levels reach their goals.  By providing training and fulfilling experiences for our athletes, they will enjoy the rewards that keep their enthusiasm for learning at a high level.  We believe skiing is a life long sport that will continue to enrich the lives of our athletes long beyond their competitive careers.

In this community where outdoor sports are a way of life for many families, participation in CSRT programs helps motivate our children and build their self-esteem.  It is important for CSRT to provide experiences that build a strong foundation of healthy life skills for each child.  Values and skills that promote leadership, perseverance, risk-taking, honesty, self-discipline, teamwork, commitment, self-confidence, respect, and sportsmanship will help our athletes be successful in life.
