Welcome to the Arlington Alpine Ski team. The high school has partnered with the Ski East league to provide members of the Arlington high school an opportunity to race. Participants are expected to know how to ski; however, prior race experience is not required.
Paul Klosterman will be returning as head coach. His email is email@example.com.
Arlington high school has established the following rules for coping with the covid pandemic. These are stricter than Massachusetts state rules and SkiEast league rules. All athletes must comply:
If you leave the state you can't come back to school or sports for either
This effectively means if you go out of state, for example to a ski house in NH or VT, you will not be allowed to compete the following week.
Skis, boots, goggles, poles, and clothing are the responsibility of the skier. Students will not be allowed to practice or to race without a helmet, which must have HARD EAR COVERINGS. Race suits are not required.
A few notes regarding gear:
All practices and Races will be at Blue Hills in Canton, MA. No Transportation will be provided by the school you must get there on your own. Car-pooling will be limited this year due to COVID restrictions
WHILE AT THE SKI AREA
Due to lodges and facilities being closed, all athletes will be expected to use their cars and parking lots to stow gear, boot up and as a base of operation
We will use both email and Sports Engine (email & text) to communicate with parents and athletes. The email you add during registration will be used by default.
No USSA membership is required for high school racing
