It would be helpful to know what discipline you are talking about. From the two clues of Slalom and Giant Slalom, I am going to guess that this is alpine. Winter Sports Club has a lot of disciplines that each have their own Junior Olympics. For example, the Nordic Combined JOs are happening this week in CT.

Perhaps the first clue is the word alpine in the first sentence.

It is changed from the print version then. And the headline needs alpine.
