Greetings NENSA Community!
THANK YOU to everyone who participated and gave so generously to our Annual April Fund Drive ~ with all your support (including nudging friends!), and two wonderful anonymous matching and doubling Donors, we were able to raise $40K for NENSA. Our staff and Board of Directors are thrilled and excited to be able to move forward with more great NENSA programing, racing and events for you all this coming year! THANK YOU!
I just came back from the annual US Ski & Snowboard Congress meetings in Utah this past week.
a program we have been offering NENSA clubs for a number of years now, is first and foremost on the national agenda for all national governing bodies, including US Ski & Snowboard, to ensure that all athletes are protected, and coaches and volunteers are educated, to the importance of SafeSport. NENSA urges ALL New England coaches, parent volunteers, venue volunteers and anyone working with youth to take the SafeSport on-line course (it only takes about an hour) and get certified. NENSA has been requiring this of all our staff and volunteer coaches and wax techs at JN's and REG Camps for several years now, and now it is federal law. So please take time this summer to be sure all your club volunteers and coaches are
certified. Do it today.
Are you still on a natural high from the Winter Olympics? Already thinking and dreaming about next season?? If so, why not think about a trip to the World Championships in Seefeld Austria, February 25th - March 4th, 2019. See box below for a trip from
cross country ski vacations, that benefits the National Nordic Foundation (NNF). This is your chance to be up close at the World Championships and support a wonderful organization that supports both our New England and national athletes! I only wish my schedule would permit me to go!
Summer is just around the corner, and NENSA's event calendar is packed full of summer ski camp opportunities. Check out the jam packed summer calendar below ~ there is something for everyone!
As we plan for the the 2018-19 season, we would like to THANK all our wonderful
from this past season ~ Associate, Contributing, Supporting, and Official Supplier levels, all featured below. Your support and sponsorship helps NENSA be the best it can be ~ THANK YOU!! Want to join the NENSA family of sponsors, just contact me, we'll love to have you join us!
