We are starting fall and the Columbus Weekend off with a special dryland training session by former US Olympian, DOUG LEWIS! Doug has been a longtime supporter of junior ski racing in the East and is coming on October 13 from 8am to 5pm to lead dryland and speak to the kids and families about his experiences with ski racing, nutrition, and sports psychology. Sign up on Admin Ski Racing.

In conjunction with this event, we will also be hosting our 1st annual SKI SWAP. Bring your outgrown gear from the basement and get something new. The Swap will run from 10am to 5pm. Call Heather for any details or questions.

Falcon’s Fields has generously provided a BBQ lunch for registered racers, available at an additional nominal cost to families

Multiple tables will also be set up for raffles, to accept Catamount jacket orders, Catamount Patagonia Orders, Information on future ski tuning demo’s by TOKO on Eventbrite, Job opportunities at Catamount, Information about the Kelly Brush Foundation and the Killington World Cup Foundation.

Catamount has graciously agreed to offer deep discounts to the new ZIP line, chairlift rides, and if still available, the aerial park!

As everyone knows, a day this big can’t go on without the support of many! We welcome everyone to volunteer at the event in any capacity. We specifically need coaches assisting Doug as he puts the kids through the paces… I have attached a link to the signup genie for your ease:

Information for parents regarding SafeSport

This info is primarily for parents of Tri-State athletes but it is available and important for all.

US Ski & Snowboard now requires all the coaches and volunteers to complete a background screening and also to complete a course administered by the US Center for SafeSport. Catamount coaches are no exceptions and they have taken the training.

Recently, the US Center for SafeSport also published a Parent Toolkit to help you understand how best to help your child understand and identify Physical, Emotional and Sexual Abuse. The toolkit also outlines what to do if you suspect something is wrong.

The toolkit is very extensive. It is broken down into sections based on a child’s age and how best to deal with discussing these issues based on their age. We suggest you read through the full booklet but at a minimum the sections that apply to you and your children. The information in the booklet is not only applicable to ski racing or Catamount but really applicable to any difficult situation a child could end up in. It is a great resource for parents.

If you have any questions, there are multiple resources at the end of the booklet that can help.

Click Here to go to the SafeSport Toolkit for Parents online version

You can also find more information and a FREE online training for parents at www.athletesafety.org.

See you all on the slopes very soon!
