Welcome to the 2018-19 season!!
I hope you're all enjoying the summer and getting excited for the upcoming season! This will be my 7th year as Alpine Racing Program Director and Head Coach and can't wait to get things started! We made big changes in the club over the past few years and this year there will be a lot of new and exciting additions! We've upgraded our equipment, changed our club culture, upgraded our technology, and improved the programs' direction. I want to thank everyone for supporting the changes each year and the great program that we've put in place for the kids.
The new website has been a great resource for parents and athletes. Please get to know the site and use it for all program age class information. Weekly training plans will be posted here each week by Wednesday by the age class Head Coaches and you can find the season schedule on the calendar page.
Alterra, the parent company of Stratton, has been incredible over the past months. The NEW Snowbowl chair is getting installed as I write this and the new IKON pass has broken all sales expectations!! Alterra is a super supportive company and we are all enjoying the new leadership!
Don't miss our fall programming! We will continue this fall with our Fall Fitness days and our SWSC Club Equipment Fitting day. If you're buying new equipment this year, the Equipment Fitting day is the place to do it! Get sized for new boots & skis by the factory representatives and order it all at a discount on the same day! These are very popular events and important for SWSC. The Annual SWSC Fall Golf Classic Tourney is still in the works and we are working on moving it to Connecticut so more of you can play! Keep an eye out for more details.
Fall Programming Dates:
Sept. 22nd Fall Fitness Day #1 9-11am Stratton Resort Base Area
Equipment Fitting Day 1-4pm Stratton Resort Base Area
Oct. 13th Fall Fitness Day #2 9-11am Stratton Resort Base Area
Oct. 27th Fall Fitness Day #3 9-11am Stratton Resort Base Area
This is the start of my seventh season with SWSC and I'm as excited as ever to push the club to our goal of the #1 club in the USA! My background prior to joining the alpine program at Stratton was with a few different styles of programs. I spent seven years at Stratton Mountain School as the Head J3 coach and oversaw the children’s programs (J3’s, J4’s, DEVO). Prior to SMS, I was the Program Director for the 2004-2005 season with the Wachusett Mountain Race Team. From 1993-2004 I was the Snowsports Director and Head Alpine Coach the New Hampton School in New Hampshire. I started my coaching career at Waterville Valley Academy after finishing my degree in Exercise Science at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire (Go Panthers!).
I'm looking forward to another successful year with the SWSC Alpine Racing Program and am excited for more changes and more big steps forward!
