Even though we all love hot, summer days there’s no time like now to start dreaming about winter, chilly mornings, and snow season! Registration for the 2018-2019 season is now open and is available HERE.
We have made a few changes for the upcoming season. Jason Guilbert has accepted the role of Director of Alpine Weekend and Club Programming, in addition to returning as Head U14 coach. Our club membership represents an enormously important and influential population, and organizing the program so that weekend/club families have strong leadership will help us as we constantly seek ways to improve families’ and athletes’ experiences with our club. Gilly will be a great advocate and is a tremendously knowledgeable coach with experience at all levels.
Also beginning this year, our Alpine U10 program will be a two-year program. The 8 and 9 year-olds in this program will have the opportunity to train and compete locally at the U10 level. This shift complements US Ski and Snowboard recommendations for 8 year old athletes in terms of Long Term Athletic Development, and mirrors our Freestyle Groms program in terms of age groupings. Our delivery of solid baseline skills will remain uncompromised as these children are also introduced to grassroots competition. Children ages 5-7 can take advantage of our Mitey Mites Program where children explore the mountain, are introduced to freestyle and alpine elements, and participate in team activities and competitions.
Nuts and Bolts: Our 2018-19 annual rates represent a standard 4% increase. Please be assured that we make every effort to control costs and manage the program responsibly, without sacrificing the quality that sets the BBTS program apart. We appreciate your continued support of our club, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work with your kids. Registration will once again be fully digital. Note that families, in completing their registration, are indicating their acknowledgement and agreement to our club’s policies and codes of conduct.
Payments and Deadlines: Our registration deadline is Monday, August 6th. Returning family registrations received after that point will be subject to a 20% penalty. We’d also like to encourage you to pay with cash, ACH transfer or check! All credit card transactions will be subject to a 3% transaction fee.
