Jackets -

For those who need the “next size up” or have outgrown your current jacket and just want to turn it in -- here is our Fall opportunity to do this.

Friday, September 25 at the SWAP Check-in between 4:00 - 7:00 PM.

Please follow these steps:

  1. Wash your jacket

  2. Ensure the pockets are empty and the hood is attached

  3. Attach a notecard to the front of the jacket with the following information:

    • Athlete name

    • Jacket size

    • Jacket number

    • Date washed & detergent

(We will not accept your jacket on Friday if these steps are not completed. Thanks for understanding.)

When we have all the jackets back, they will go into quarantine for two weeks.

After two weeks, we will inventory what we received, and sell the used jackets for $100. We will no longer be lending jackets out for the $100 deposit, we will not be collecting jackets for exchange in the future. We will encourage teammates who outgrow jackets to sell and buy from each other using the Facebook Team Swap and our Ski & Snowboard Swap.

 

Jacket deposits will be credited to your account following the jacket quarantine.

 

Questions? Ask. We cannot guarantee sizes coming back to resell, but we will do our best to outfit anyone who requests a jacket with the inventory we do have.

2020 Ski & Snowboard SWAP

Our team will host the annual Ski and Snowboard SWAP in a tent this year, September 25-27, 2020 at Snowbird.

June 23, 2020 -- SBSEF 2020-2021 Freeride & Alpine Registration is OPEN

Good Afternoon SBSEF families!

Our 2020-21 Season Programs are online and ready for your registration. Please see the attached letter, and read through this email, for important updates and key information to make registration easy.

We continue to have a cap on our team numbers, so register early. We will not be advertising that our registration is open on social media until July -- so you get first chance to sign up.

Our program website pages have been updated with this season's information. Of course, some things are still undecided due to the events of the world, such as athlete shuttles and devo lunches, but as we have answers, we will update everyone.

Be sure to take the time to update your family and athlete profile in your SBSEF account. A large red box will hinder your ability to see some functions on the registration website until you update this information, it will go away when you update. Part of the update includes important medical information the staff should know about your athlete. Please include allergies, important medications, and diagnoses that you feel we should know about. If there is a special medical concern, please contact the head coach directly via email.

Renew your USS&S membership. See the attached letter for details.

New this year: Freeride National Team - you need a code to register for this level of Program, and Siri has that code. Contact Siri BEFORE you start registering, or you will get all the way through and not be able to complete your registration without the code, we don't want you frustrated. (siri@sbsef.com)

Devo Transition team - the same thing, we have a code set up so just those that are recommended for this program register. If you need a code, email Jason (jason@sbsef.com).

Tuition prices have not increased for this season. Work deposits have been re-evaluated and adjusted to match the training days of the athlete, so a few have gone down by $100. More WRA/WD opportunities are being developed, and if you have a suggestion, let us know! A $500 deposit is required with your program registration, or you have the option to pay in full. Credit Card fees will be applied to payments at check out. To avoid this 3% processing fee, please check out and pay with eCheck. It is simple and saves you and the team money. If you would like to use your credit card to pay for tuition in full, we will credit back the processing fee to your athlete account, to be used for camps/events/races/travel (credits only, no refunds). A $500 deposit is required with your program registration, or you have the option to pay in full. 

Have questions? Feel free to contact me! I can walk you through the registration process and help you decide between programs or get you in touch with the head coaches with your questions. All team pages have links to email the head coaches, feel free to reach out to them with program-specific questions.  Forgot your password to your SBSEF account? You can reset it yourself from the login screen, look to the left, and click the "password reset" button.
