Thank You SWSC,
The 2018/19 SWSC season has come to a close and what an amazing last weekend we had! Saturday we were treated with a late season powder day and Sunday we had bluebird skies for the Annual SWSC Club Championship race! Congratulations to Skye Greenberg (U14) and Declan McNamara (U19) on their 2019 Club Champion titles!
The 2018/19 season was an amazing one! The club was the biggest we've ever seen (305 athletes) and SWSC had an amazing group of coaches, crew, parents, and athletes. We hosted 13 races, 2 VARA projects, a massive Skating party, and a huge awards banquet. We added a very successful SWSC Parent Education Series, the U14 Vermont State Championships event, the Eastern Masters Championships, and the very important #Shred4Nate race in memory of Nathan Carreira.
We couldn't have done all of this without a great parent group and lots of parent volunteers! We also couldn't have done all of this without our amazing SWSC coaches, timing crew, and event crew! This is a truly professional and dedicated team that make sure things are perfect everyday for the athletes. I make sure to thank them every day for their commitment and hard work and I hope you're all doing the same!! We are very lucky to have the team we do and their love for SWSC is why the athletes have fun and learn every weekend and why we are so successful.
There's a lot of wrapping up to do over the next few weeks/months and some athletes are still racing. We already are in the planning stages for 2019/20 and the head coaches had a great end of year round table meeting to review and build the new program. We have some great new projects in the works and we are excited to announce them!
There's a lot happening during the off season as well. We have lots of athletes joining the Mt Hood
training Camps over the summer, as well as athletes already registering for the Fall Copper Thanksgiving Camp
in November. Off Season camps are a great way to build skills in a non-competitive environment with professional coaches! All these camps sell out, so let me know if you're interested! More skiing = more progress
We are also working on a new fall conditioning plan that will take place in the NYC region. Our Fall Fitness sessions are great and it's fun to get out and train on Stratton Mountain, but we want to get MORE kids involved! This will be a great way to get the team together and get ready for the winter!
It's been an amazing season and I can't thank everyone enough for all your commitment to SWSC!! A BIG "thanks" to Stratton Resort and the Stratton Ski & Board Club
for their commitment to SWSC! We couldn't have done it without your support! Please let me know if you're up over the next few weekends, it would be great to see you all!
Thank You for an incredible year SWSC!!
