Killington World Cup

The World Cup is returning to Killington on November 26-27, and so is the VARA Parade!!
There will be fun and exciting activities happening at the event, and as usual, watching the women compete will be an experience to remember for life. The VARA parade is scheduled for Saturday morning, Nov. 26, before the start of the Giant Slalom.
If you are interested in participating, you must contact your home program director or coach. VARA will be collecting participant information from the council representative for the parade.
If you want to be sure to get your new Swix parade hat, then you better get your name on your club's parade list!
ELITEAM's Doug Lewis will run a coaches education and youth conditioning camp this fall. The events will occur at the GMVS Campus on October 22nd (coach ed) and 23rd (athlete day). Don't miss this opportunity. Put it on your calendar, and keep your eyes peeled for more camp and registration details

On September 25, Willard will host a VARA dryland program also run by Doug Lewis of ELITEAM. More information on all of the fall VARA ELITEAM programs will be sent out soon.

Want to work with professionals in athletics and make a difference in a young person's life? Invest in today's youth for a fulfilling experience, watching your athletes grow into young adults with character, a strong work ethic, and resiliency. As well as better ski racers!
