The first FIS Youth and Children's Seminar was organized in Magglingen (SUI) on 22nd-23rd November. This FIS Youth Ski Sports Conference was entitled "Better Ski Sports for Youngsters...Better Youngsters for Life!"

The goals of the seminar were to bring together 50 youth sports administrators of developing ski nations, create awareness regarding the state of youth ski sports by allowing the attendees to cross over and provide “how to” solutions and suggestions for youth ski sports administrators. Youth was defined as young people between 10 and 17 years of age.
