Welcome D-Teamers to the 2018/2019 Season!

This is going to be the best season yet….I can feel it in my bones!  We are thrilled to be working with all of your children this year & we can not wait to get started.  BUT, before we turn your kids into the best skiers in the world, here is a bit of information to get you started.

All practices begin this weekend starting with Saturday, Dec 1 (10-3), Sunday Dec 2 (1-4), Tuesday Gates, Dec 4 (5-7) and Thursday Skills, Dec 6 (5-7).  

Before the first practice please take these steps:

  1.  Triple check all equipment/gear for fit & function
  2. Check the weather to make sure kids are dressed accordingly
  3. Please make sure that kids have been fed before practice & have enough lunch or snacks to keep them going during breaks
  4. Make a plan with your child for pick up/drop off locations
  5. D-Team Sweatshirt order deadline is Dec 2.  There is an online order form on the Buck Hill website and payment is taken at the ski school.
  6. Be sure to check this blog, the facebook page or remind for weekly updates (well done!  You nailed step 6 already!)
  7. Pack their best smiles

What to expect from D-Team?  The photos below are of a young man who was on the D-Team.  The first photos was taken when he was 6 & the latter photo just 3 short seasons later.  There is clearly an improvement, but what the photos do not show is this young man’s passion & joy for skiing.  As a D-team coach, I know that I can not turn every child into a world cup racer but I can do my best to help them learn to love this amazing sport.  Our goals are simple:  Help the children learn & grow as a skier while having fun & of course staying safe.    Hope to meet you all very soon!
