Team Description

2020-2021 U19+ Teams (Ages 16+) 

The U19+ Teams are comprehensive competition programs that offer our athletes the opportunity to be involved and managed year-round. These programs are designed around the individual needs of each athlete to enable them to pursue their own personal goals. We realize our athletes have different goals and priorities, and we strive to accommodate all levels of athlete commitment, from the two-day weekend divisional competitor focused on improving skills and competing locally, to the full-time six-day per week FIS racer pursuing regional, national and international competitions, with the goal of competing for an NCAA or USCSA College team or the US Ski Team. We advise each athlete and structure their own individualized training and racing schedule based on their academic and athletic goals.

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.

Thursday, Oct 8, 5:30 - 6 at Churchill in the West Parking lot.

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 Thursday 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.
