2019-2020 Edition of SWSC Freestyle/Freeskiing

2019-2020 Edition of SWSC Freestyle/Freeskiing

Hello!

I hope you have been out enjoying the heat and sunshine to the fullest! We have had some great conversations over the Summer that will provide the best Freestyle & Freeskiing programs yet! As I ride around Stratton on our new, totally awesome bike trails, the leaves are beginning to change! One thing is for sure... Winter is coming, and it's time to think about ski season once again! 

As we go forward we are always looking at ideas to keep everyone in the loop in a very simple, clean manner. I am excited to announce a new chapter in communication for SWSC. We will be using the "Team App" for ALL program related information this season. Weekly communication, event info, photo galleries, handbooks, and important web links will be found on one very simple screen. The best part is, it's live right now! 

Let's get started:

 

  1. Visit the Apple App/Google Play Store to download the "Team App" if you don't already have it installed from another sports team your athlete takes a part in and create an account with Team App and follow the prompts.

  2. Search for our team... "SWSC Freestyle/Freeskiing". If you have more than one athlete enrolled across SWSC you can also search for "SWSC Snowboarding" or "SWSC Alpine" too.

  3. Request to join the "group" your athlete is enrolled in. Please note if you have a couple of children in different groups, please note that when you request to join and we will take care of it on the back side. (Example: "Hi - Ryan and Maddie are on the A Team, Sammie is on the B Team", etc.)

  4. Once your enrollment is confirmed you will be provided access to the appropriate groups and you can view all the events and RSVP to our Fall Fitness Trampoline sessions, etc.. (Please allow 1-2 business days)
Other exciting value adds that are coming soon, are the implementation of our goal setting forms, athlete follow up meetings with coaches to review goals, and more content rich educational programing. I am told that our Terrain Parks (appropriate for our teams) and the World Cup mogul venue should be open for the Holiday break, weather permitting.
 
With all these great changes I am also please to announce that we have a very strong staff line up for the coming season! There has been a few employees leaving to pursue college and other professional opportunities, but the core of our staff remains true and we have some very strong candidates to fill in the gaps. More detail on this later, as job positions become official. I could not be more proud of the highly qualified, knowledgable, and caring staff we have to provide a truly World Class program.
 
I would also like to take a minute to thank you for putting your trust in our SWSC Freestyle/Freeskiing programing and staff. There is nothing more satisfying than passing along the gift of skiing to the next generation. Seeing all athletes learn and grow, physically and socially makes all the hard work worth it.
 
Our Fall Fitness Days are coming up quickly be sure to sign up for the Team App and request to join "SWSC Freestyle/Freeskiing" to sign up for the morning trampoline sessions, you must be currently enrolled in SWSC Action Sports programs. (Allegro, Freeskiing, Freestyle B/A, Mountain Riders, Snowboard Comp) In addition to morning trampoline sessions, the afternoons will be highlighted with an equipment fit day on 9/28 from 1:00-3:00pm, Summit Fire Tower Hike with gondola download on 10/12 from 1:00-4:00pm, and Stratton Pond Hike on 10/26 from 1:00-4:30pm. You are more than welcome to bring family and friendly pups (on leash in the base area) to our hiking events. Proper hiking footwear and good fitness are a must.
 
Other important dates are October 15, 2019, this is when program fees increase. If you have already enrolled in the program, thank you for doing it early. If you need to sign up still, you may do so here.
 
We are excited you are here and look forward to an amazing season ahead, I look forward to seeing you soon!
 
Best,

SWSC Freestyle A: Whiteface & End of Season Party!

SWSC Freestyle A: Whiteface & End of Season Party!
Hey A team,
 
Congratulations guys… We are completing a super successful year! The end of the season always brings mixed feelings…The happiness of winding down a very busy year and the sadness of missing our friends and the competition experiences.  I guess all I can say is that for most of us our freestyle-cycle is year-round, we will be taking a breather for a few months before ramp camps and Mt Hood begin for some.
 
Before we talk about the coming weekend I would like to congratulate our skiers who qualified for US championships: Jamie, Maddie, Kaela, Blake and Patrick. Maddie and Kaela could not make it… But our other three skiers- killed it and we were super excited for just the opportunity to make and compete at our National  championships at Waterville Valley, New Hampshire this past weekend!
 
Onto Lake Placid/Whiteface this weekend for the spring Bumps and Jumps competition. We will just be staffing the singles event on Saturday and then returning to Stratton for the Freedogger/End of year awards banquet as quickly as possible Saturday afternoon. Our End of Season Bash will be held in Black Bear Lodge's Green Mountain Room from 5:00-8:00pm. (VENUE HAS CHANGED!)
 
We will have Megan and Bogue at Whiteface Friday for training and comp.You can meet coaches in the base lodge at 10:30 training day. 
On this Saturday- competition day you meet the coaches at 7:45 in the lodge.
 
All information pertaining to the competition is at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1fW8wYkBK_ab9yUFozf6xxiXkIy1eaiYjjhxhNmdUEQE 
 
So as I said lots of freestyle things rumbling through our heads right now and for the coming summer. We would love to have as many athletes from our A team join our preferred Summer camp partner, All Out Freestyle, at Mt Hood this summer for a very important and fun training camp. Tim and I feel it is super important that we follow through with our training regime that we have installed this winter with all of our A squad members . It’s important that we work on our carving/turns drills, strong entry and exit out of airs, and our speed/control.  These will be the priority for our A-Team training at Hood. Many of you will also be working on upgrading your aerial and qualification needs. 
 
Lake Placid has always been a great training facility and with All Out Freestyle being one of the few to be able to use the Olympic Training Center venue- we feel our training camps provide tremendous value that can't be found elsewhere.  Everyone on the a team knows about this facility and we hope you check out our schedule and send in a deposit as soon as possible for we are nearing sellout capacity. Both mount hood registration and Lake Placid registration and information is available at  AllOutFreestyle.com
 
So we look forward to seeing everybody this weekend whether it is LakePlacid or the end-of-the-year party at Stratton! I know I’ve had a fantastic time with all of you skiers and parents!  I give a huge shout out to my two coaches Megan Moores and Adam Kohutnicki who have been there and done a fantastic job for our long season of events and comps. 
 
We look forward to seeing everyone this summer and killing again it next winter!
 
Happy trails,
 
Bogue
