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!

Catamount Interclub Fun Race 3/10

Hi all!

Looking forward to tomorrow’s race and end of year party! Please try to arrive at mountain by 830 so we can have an accurate list of participants.

All racers should meet their coaches at the Catamount chair as usual at 9 sharp to ski and then inspect when course is ready.

We will plan on starting the race at 10. There will be 2 timed runs (run without a lunch break)

At the end of the second run, we hope that some parents and coaches will give the course a try- and will have all the racers gathered at the bottom of the course to cheer!! Maybe we can get a group photo then.

After the race, we will meet in the taconic lodge for a pizza and pot luck party/end of year interclub party with awards for all and trophies for race winners. Feel free to bring a dish, beverage, utensils, cups, or napkins to contribute to the pot luck.

We could use help tomorrow with race and party. Please check when you arrive as to how you can help.

Thanks !!
