Team SWSA & Ski Jumping at Satre Hill

SWSA provides instruction for jumpers from 6 years old and up. Currently we have jumpers using our 20 and 30-meter hills. Both hills have been worked on recently to improve the quality of the hill and experience.

Jumping at Satre Hill

Things to know before you start:
• Skiers progress from small to larger jumps, advancing at their own pace
• Ski Jumping at SWSA allows skiers to develop the skills and confidence necessary for safe and enjoyable ski jumping. All levels welcome.
• Beginning jumpers may use their alpine skis, eventually transitioning to jumping skis
• Jumping equipment is available for use at no added cost
• Helmets are mandatory

For Parents of Jumpers
What I learned when my child became a ski jumper:
• Ski jumpers are not high off the ground. Their flight is for distance and matches the contour of the hill.
• After a year of jumping my child showed marked self-confidence that exemplified itself in his every day life.
• No matter the competency of the jumper it is a small community where everyone supports each other. Cheers of support equally reward soaring perfection and brave attempts.
• If your equipment needs adjustment, breaks, is faulty, team members and even competitors, will find a new set of skis for you to be able to participate.
• When my child casually sits next to Olympians and International competitors he/she forms new goals, aspirations, and objectives in sports and life.


Practice will be held Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5-7, and Saturday afternoons from 1-3, weather permitting. Changes to this schedule will be emailed to parents by our coach. For more information, feel free to reach out to us by emailing

"Team SWSA" is a group of area youth who have tried ski jumping and continue to train beyond the Holiday Camp. They can compete throughout New England with their first competition at SWSA during Jumpfest small hills competition.

Participation in tournaments at other clubs is optional, but lots of fun!

SWSA shares training and competitive opportunities in winter and summer with the Eastern Ski Jumping Association who have clubs in Lake Placid (NYSEF), Lebanon, NH (Lebanon Outing Club), Andover, NH (Andover Outing Club and Hanover, NH (Ford Sayre).

Participation outside SWSA is optional.

Snow permitting there is also the opportunity to try cross-country skiing.
