Mid-Atlantic Junior National Team,
Congratulations on qualifying to represent the Mid-Atlantic Junior National Ski Team at the 2020 Junior National Championships in Truckee, California from March 7th -15th.
I will be sending out a lot of important information related to the trip in the coming weeks, please be sure to read all of the e-mails I send fully and complete any attached information and/or links I provide.
All athletes and/or parents must complete the following Google form ASAP. This will gather a great deal of important personal information that will be used to register athletes and also create the contact list to keep athletes and parents up to date on the trip details as they become available.
Google Form : https://forms.gle/19PLZ74XDw4VADzt5
If you have any questions pertaining to this Google Form please let me know.
Trip Deposit $500 non-refundable deadline Thursday 2/13 final trip payment due on or before 2/23 ( final trip cost and payment details will be sent out after the 2/15 deposit deadline. )
Uniforms: Athletes are required to compete in a minimum of Team Mid-Atlantic tights. Athletes are encouraged to race in a complete Team Mid-Atlantic suit. Athletes also have the option to purchase a Mid-Atlantic Team Jacket but are not required.
* I have 1 small and 1 extra small jacket that were extras from the last order. If you are interested please e-mail me directly. Cost $75.00 first come first serve!
Uniforms may be purchased through Podiumwear at the following team store (please see link below). The team store will close on Sunday 2/9. After that, uniforms will not be available for purchase.
You may also ask around, as we have had these suits for a number of years and some may be available from athletes who have been on previous trips.
USSA Membership: All athletes must have a competitive USSA License. Please enter your license on the google form. Athletes who bought a “General” $15 license to race in Lake Placid can upgrade to the “Competitive” License. To do so you need to call USSA as this cannot be done online. https://my.ussa.org/membership/start
NYSSRA License: All athletes must have a NYSSRA License to go on the trip. NYSSRA is our governing body in Mid-Atlantic. If you do not have a NYSSRA membership please get one prior to the trip: https://www.skireg.com/nyssra-nordic-membership-19
Trip Details: I am finalizing the trip cost ASAP. As soon as I have that finalized, I will e-mail athletes and parents. I’m still approximating a trip cost of $1,700.00 per athletes, plus airfare. This will cover all of the aspects of an athlete’s trip from arrival on Saturday March 7th through Departure March 15th. We will be staying at the Clair Tappaan Lodge https://clairtappaanlodge.com/
Athletes who plan on arriving on Friday March 6th or earlier will need to make accommodations until team housing opens on the 7th . Mid-Atlantic XC will not be providing any lodging options prior to Friday March 6th. If an athlete wants to arrive prior to the 6th they will need to figure out lodging and transportation on their own. We are asking athletes to book flights in and out of Sacramento California arriving on Saturday March 7th no later than 11pm Departing Sunday March 15th no earlier than 12noon. Team transportation will be able to accommodate these times. Any arrivals or departures out of these time frames athletes will be required to organize transportation to and from the airport. Athletes may also fly in and out of Reno NV but again transportation will have to be organized by the athlete.
As final airfare is booked please update the google form to reflect travel details.
