Tryouts SignUp now Online for 2/23, 3/2, 3/9 dates

Michael Jacobson
Tryouts new team members for the 2019/2020 season will be held on February 23, March 2rd and March 9th.  Your athlete will need to particapte in one of these to be considered for any available slots.  This year we will limit the try out sign ups to 15 atheles for each day.
You will have your athletes meet the LMRT coach in front of main lodge on snow by 9am ready to ski.  Please arrive early enough to be ready by 9am as we will not hold the group.  The coach will ski with the athletes and video them on various terrain (green, blue and black).  Please don't ask the coach for feedback at this event as it will be provided later (in April).  The group will be done around 11am.  The items that the coaches will evaluate each athlete on are listed below:
  • Ability to Ride Chair Lift
  • Use of poles
  • Control Speed    
  • C-Shaped Turns    
  • Interacts Well with Others
  • Takes Coaching Direction    
  • Skis Safely    
  • Alpine Stance/Balance
  • Carving/Pressure
  • Upper Body
You will be informed in April if your athlete is selected to join LMRT.  If your athlete is not selected then they will be placed on a wait list.  If slots become available (another member decides not to return) they will be notified by September.
Now for those who can't make tryouts this day.  In general we don't let athletes on the team unless that have been evaluated at a tryout or a transfer from another USSA team or have a current gold/platnium from NASTAR.  If you can not possibly make Saturday tryout please contact me (via the contact us form).  I will see what can be worked out but 99% of the time all the selection are based on those who attend the tryout day.
Thanks,
