MAST Update #10
Monday, November 16, 2020
Dear MAST Athletes, Families, Coaches:
We are two weeks away from the start of our season. We have a few new announcements to make and some reminders.
I. MAST Apparel—Now On Sale!
To begin, here is a letter from Gail Arnold who has been working with the captains to design and arrange our MAST apparel offerings for the 2020-21 season.
Hello MAST Athletes, Families and Friends:
Your MAST apparel is finally ready!
The captains have designed a super cool T-shirt!
Go to minneapolisalpineskiteam.sportssignup.com/MySportsStore to check out the 2020 apparel. I apologize for the delay. There is a global shortage of team apparel products. Hats were not available this year. I would like everyone to order as soon as possible in hopes that we can get what we want. I will close the store on December 1st. Get your orders in! There will not be an additional second order.
A few tips for this year:
We needed to use 2 different vendors for T-shirts this year. For clarification on the T-shirts: If you need a youth large you can order an Adult XS T-shirt in the Bella and Canvas.
Bella and Canvas T-shirts come in Adult XS-L
Champion T-shirts come in Adult XL-2XL. The Champion T-shirt costs more. I
In general, the Team Jackets run small. You have the option of personalizing your jacket with your name on the back. We are not able to personalize any other apparel items this year.
We have joggers this year instead of the Champion sweatpants offered last year.
The Classic Champion Hoodie is in a Silver this year. Totally Iconic.
If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me firstname.lastname@example.org
Let It Snow!
II. Athletes Cleared To Participate as of Nov 16
The high school athletic directors are busy processing the MPS/MSHSL participation forms. Attached is a roster of those athletes who have been cleared to participate in alpine skiing as of Monday, Nov 16. If you have turned in your forms, I’m confident the ADs are working hard to process them. If you need to turn in forms, please do so this week. Check with your high school athletic director about the best way to submit forms. Remember, if you played a Fall Sport for your high school, you only need to submit a new Emergency Contact Form. Everything else is on file.
III. MAST Orientation Webinar: Sunday, Nov 22 7PM
Get the popcorn popping. Our next webinar is scheduled for Sunday, November 22 at 7PM. We have a lot of information to share. All team members need to participate, and it would be really valuable for at least one parent to attend as well. Please log in using your MPS email account. The coaches will be sharing information about how we will be training and racing this year in the midst of a pandemic. There is much to discuss. I will be sending a link to the webinar as we get closer to Sunday. I will post the webinar on our YouTube channel sometime during Thanksgiving week in case you cannot attend in person.
IV. Thank You For Your Donations
I want to say thank you to all the families (and there are a lot of you) who made a donation to MAST when registering for the season. You were incredibly generous. We have recorded over $4700 in donations just from current MAST families. On Saturday, we also receive a generous (unsolicited) donation from Pierce Skate and Ski.
V. Give To The MAX and MAST
MAST participates in the annual Give to the Max campaign, which is Thursday, November 19th. A separate email was sent to our larger MAST community and alumni. If you would like more information on MAST's 2020 Give to the Max campaign please see here.
Hopefully, everyone is finding the equipment you need. Attached is a fresh inventory of equipment that is being offered on our website. Please let me know when something you have posted is sold so I can take it down.
Stay safe please. Social distance. Wear a mask. And be sure to get in a workout daily.
