IMPORTANT INFO FOR 2/9 Training!!!

Hello Team,

This weekend we are hosting WhaleJam at Whaleback.  This is a USSA sanctioned freestyle competition drawing over 100 athletes from all over New England. Our club hosts some of the best events on the schedule, but we cannot make these events a success without volunteers.  

Below are some details regarding the day, we welcome everyone to come out and cheer on our athletes and check out the competition!  There is sure to be some fantastic skiing!

Parking:  the mountain has asked all Core Team members to park in the back lot by the core shack, as far back and as tightly squeezed in as possible.  We are trying to accomodate as many cars as possible and be gracious hosts to our guests.  

Regularly Scheduled Saturday Training:

-MiniCore, MiniCore Plus and Devo groups: athletes will get ready and meet groups downstairs in the lodge.  Coaches will do their best to meet athletes indoors but may need to meet athletes out on the deck instead of at tables.  Younger athletes may need help finding their group and please be sure to check out your athlete on the deck at 12pm or 2pm when your program ends. Please note that Coach assignements have been changed due to abcenses and staffing the event. If you can not find your group, find a Core Team person with a radio and they will help connect you to your group.

-Core Snowboard and Core All Mountain will train as usual out of the Core Shack.


Volunteers:  upon arrival please check in with our volunteer coordinator upstairs in the lodge, near registration before heading out to your assignment.

The snow is being made, the ahtletes are excited, the moguls are being skied, and we are thankful for such a great community of skiers and riders to help make this event a huge success! 

See you Saturday,
Jessica and Rebecca

WhaleJam Volunteers Needed

Hello Team,

WhaleJam is this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday.  This is a USSA Sactioned Freestyle event that generates a lot of revenue for our club to keep costs reasonable for our athletes.  We rely on volunteers to run this event.  Every family is required to fulfill their volunteer requirements each season based on the level their athlete particpates.

Several crucial open spots remain.  If you have not fulfilled your obligation, please take a moment to review the available positions and sign up.  We really hope we can continue to run our program without requiring financial deposits for volunteer hours as other programs require.
