Good Afternoon MAST Families:
We are off to a good start with dryland training. As your athlete may have told you, we have introduced 30 minutes of Character Skills Training into our practices this week. Yesterday, Coach Joel worked with the athletes on the process of setting goals. Daniel will be working with our skiers on the skill of visualization during today's practice. On Tuesday, I spoke with the athletes about The MAST Way. Attached is a handout that provides a bit of detail about my message. Should make for awesome dinner conversation tonight with the family.
Hyland announced that they would be open next week beginning on Tuesday. If it looks like there will be ample runs open to offer a safe skiing environment, we will practice on Tuesday evening(time TBD) and Wednesday morning from 9am-11am. We will also practice Friday and Saturday from 9am-11am . I know a lot of folks will be out of town next week, so enjoy your holiday. If you are in town, I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to ski next week.
Finally, Today is Give to the Max Day! Many of you have already given generously to MAST this year when you registered your athlete. I thank you for that. Give to the Max Day is another opportunity to make a donation to your favorite ski team. My understanding is that some companies match employee contributions. Please know we are a 501c3 in very good standing with the Secretary of State. We welcome any contribution you can make. Also, I use this opportunity to send a letter to our alumni families every year and they always respond generously. Feel free to pass this along to anyone whom you think might be interested.
Here is a link to donate: MAST GIVE TO THE MAX DAY.
I will be sending out information about registering for camp before the end of the day tomorrow. Stay tuned.
