WELCOME TO WINTER 2021 – 2022
we’ve officially launched the 21-22 snowsports season! To begin, we would like to most sincerely thank everyone for all of their dedication to WVBBTS last year as we navigated the COVID season. We could not have done it without your support: it was not easy! But we know it was appreciated. With the pandemic season out of the way (and rapidly receding in the rearview mirror), we are looking forward to a new year which we believe will enable a return to more normal operations.
One quick note on Covid: our position is that we strongly recommend that any BBTS participant who is age-eligible be Covid vaccinated in advance of participating in our program. We know that many of our youth participants are not vaccine-eligible at this point. By registering for our program, you agree to disclose your and all participant’s Covid vaccine status upon request. We reserve the right to modify this policy to require mandatory Covid vaccination and reserve the right to require documentation of vaccination status at some point in the future.
CHANGES TO THE ATHLETE SUPPORT PROGRAM
We are extremely proud to announce that we’re making a substantial change to our credit requirement, and new in 21-22 the vast majority of families will see their credit obligation change from 6 to 4. (yay!) Families enrolled at WVA and in the Mitey Mites will still be required to do 2 credits. There is still the option to buy out your credits in the pre-season as well.
Clarification for Freeski, Freestyle, & Snowboard Groups
For Freeski, Freestyle, and Snowboard families we have slightly adjusted the registration process to make it more clear. The three age groups have been assigned a birth year so that you know exactly which group to sign-up for. This has nothing to do with athletic groups. Coaches will continue to move athletes into groups where they fit most appropriately and to recommend events based on ability as well as age. The registration categories are just for our records, and to clear up something that is consistently a question for new families.

CELEBRATE WVA’S 50TH
This year, 2021-22, marks the 50th anniversary of Waterville Valley Academy, and we should all be proud! WVA is one of the oldest sport academies of any variety in the country. We’ll be celebrating the Academy this winter, and look forward to sharing more of the history and legacy of our academy over the course of this winter!
