Congratulations to all of our SV|AM team athletes qualifying for the 2018-19 Season Championships. Over 90 athletes qualified for tier one competition events. The SAF Board has followed their progress throughout the season and is very excited with the success achieved!
Along with a high level of success comes a heightened financial burden associated with additional travel, team and entry-fee expenses. In order to reduce this increased burden, the SAF Board has approved grants of merit-based, in-season scholarships for top ranking athletes who wish to participate in higher level competition. The Board is granting a total of $44,000 in scholarships to support over 54 of these top ranking team athletes that have qualified and will be competing, or have competed, in the various 2018-19 Season Championships.
On behalf of the SAF Board and the Athlete Scholarship Committee, congratulations to all of our athletes! We are thrilled to help support our kids’ passion for snow sports and be a small part of their success.
We invite our community to consider further supporting these athletes through a donation. While this season marks a record level of merit-based, in-season scholarships, in both the aggregate amount granted and the number of athletes receiving such scholarships, our goal is to grant a merit-based, in-season scholarship to every qualifying athlete. Please consider matching (scholarships ranged from $600 to $1,000) or making a general donation. If you are able and willing to help us reach this goal, please donate today. Every penny will go to these exceptional athletes who have earned the right to compete at a higher level.
