Competition requires the mastering of a broad spectrum of physical, technical, mental, and social skills.  The spring merit scholarship is awarded to athletes that have shown growth and achievement throughout the season and are awarded funds to help with the costs associated with championship events such as travel and event fees.  This scholarship is to honor those athletes who are dedicated to the sport, allowing them to continue their journey and pursue their goals.

“Because of your support I was able to ski at the USASA Nationals in Copper, Colorado. I took first place in Half Pipe and 15th in Slopestyle in the Junior Men’s division.

Because of my first-place finish, I have been accepted to Project Gold Camp. The U.S. Ski Camp and Snowboard Association brings together the top junior athletes in the country for a progressive talent development camp in Mammoth Mountain in June. I’m really excited because it will elevate my half-pipe training to a new level. The USA Freeski coaches will be there so I’m also looking forward to that experience.”
