Absences

Happy first day of practice!
As we discussed at the informational meeting, practices this season will be mandatory. If you want to travel to races, you need to be at practice every day.
That said, we know there will be days you are sick/need to stay at school late/have other commitments. We've designed a worksheet that will allow you to make up practice in case you need to miss a few. You can get credit two missed practices per week, MAX, by completing this worksheet and turning it into Meghan on the Monday following the week you missed practice(s). 
You can access the worksheet by clicking here. Please download it, print it off and then fill it out throughout the week so it is ready to be turned in to Meghan on the following Monday. 
If you will be missing practice, still let us know ahead of time. If you're sick, let us know but don't come to practice!!! 

Important Dates

First, something to get you excited!

Start of the 2019 - 2020 Ski Season!

The cold nip to the air and the pictures of snowflakes in the forecast has inspired me to write the first blog post of the 2019-2020 ski season!

Here are a few housekeeping items you can take care of while you are waiting for the snow to start to fall!

First, if you are renting skis, base camp will be doing their rentals Nov. 1st - 14th.  There will be extended hours until 7:00 pm and the first 100 people to rent will get a gift!

If you have not gotten a physical yet now is the time to do it!  Also, go by the activities office to get the rest of your paperwork filled out.

I have put a link to the race schedule on the blog in hopes that this will help you plan ahead.

If you are interested in ordering a swix team jacket for $91 please email Amy Williams at aparkerwill@gmail.com ASAP!
