Veneto – Falcade Ski College
The Veneto – Falcade S.C.S.D. Facility has recently obtained official “Ski College” recognition from the Federal Commission of the FISI, thanks to its collaboration with the Follador – De Rossi public higher education institute, with campuses in Falcade and Agordo.
The College’s athletes perform top-level competitive activity at an intense pace, paying particular attention to the study curriculum followed in one of the 7 specialised programmes offered by the Follador – De Rossi institute.
Students work with coaches and a personal trainer for their sports activity, and also have an educational tutor who liaises with the school and its teachers and takes care of the afternoon assisted study sessions: hard work and good academic results are required in order to train and take part in the competitions planned.
The disciplines currently practised at the Ski College are Nordic Skiing, Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding. The Ski College is gearing up for the sports season and the school year, with around sixty students – athletes who will be returning to their school lessons and sports training from September.
The Ski College boasts an impressive trophy cabinet, thanks to its athletes who have competed – and continue to compete – on the National Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding and Nordic Skiing Teams, bringing home a bronze medal from the Youth Olympics. Many of the College’s alumni compete on the military sports teams, while others have become ski instructors.
