CARRABASSETT VALLEY — 4 Carrabassett Valley Academy (CVA) athletes and two CVA alumni have been chosen to represent their property nations at the 2023 FIS Ski Cross (SX) Planet Junior Ski Championships in San Pellegrino, Italy from March 25th – 28th. The Planet Juniors is an vital international benchmarking occasion and give a stepping stone to larger-level international competitors, like the Planet Cup.

CVA Head Coach, Michael Phelan, will be supporting his athletes by representing each Group USA and Group Belgium this year.

“As 1st year FIS athletes, at 16-17 years old, generating Junior Worlds is actually an accomplishment,” mentioned Phelan. “For the complete eligible contingent of FIS athletes at CVA to obtain an invite is unheard of. I am so proud of my group, what they have achieved so far this season, and what they will continue to achieve as they represent their property nations at Junior Worlds.”

The following CVA athletes have been chosen to represent the United States of America and Belgium at the upcoming Junior Planet Ski Cross Championships: Sullivan Butler Class of 2024 (USA) from Carrabassett Valley, Francois Meloni Class of 2023 (BEL) from Luxembourg, Belgium, Morgan Shute Class of 2025 (USA) from Allendale, NJ, Maggie Swain Class of 2024 (USA) from Kingfield.

They will be joined by the following CVA alumni who also produced the USA Junior Worlds Group. Tyler Currier (Class of 2022) (USA) from Harleysville, PA, Eli Derrick (Class of 2020) (USA) from Harrisonburg, VA.

With these nominations, CVA ladies have secured two of the 4 readily available spots on the USA Women’s Group, CVA males have secured 3 of the six readily available spots on the USA men’s group, and one particular CVA athlete will be representing group Belgium.
