U10 and U12 Weekend Update 12/9 and 12/10 + Last Call for Hammer Camp

Hello U12 and U10 Families,

I hope this email finds you well and looking forward to the weekend!

Weekend Training Info: Saturday and Sunday we will be on SL skis (no armor needed) for freeskiing and drill work training according to our normal schedule. Looking ahead we are on SL skis 12/16 and 12/17 also.

I hope to see you all Saturday night 12/9 at The OMS Board of Directors’ Reception at OMS in our NEW Fitness Facility (53 Main St in Ludlow) from 7 – 9 pm – a fun evening of seeing what’s new at OMS and mingling with fellow parents – past, present, and future – while enjoying hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and new this year – a signature cocktail!  A great way to learn about the opportunities that exist for your athlete at OMS and support OMS’ Wish List through the Giving Tree! If you can’t make it to this event, check out our Wish List onlineThis event is most appropriate for adults only.

Tomorrow is the last chance to sign up for OMS Holiday Hammer Camp, so if you haven’t had the chance to yet, but are intending to, do so right away! If you have signed up, details on the week will come later this week.

***Friday training: Anyone who has signed their children up for Friday training (you must sign up for the “3 day” option with the Comp Center), training for Friday U10/12s will start this Friday.  You will receive separate communication on this each week.  If you haven’t actually signed up yet, I won’t know you are doing Fridays and you won’t receive emails on this.

A few reminders and important info:

1) Please read U12.10 101 2017.18 Edition for LOTS of information including training and race schedules – this is helpful for new and returning families.  It includes information about the program, some of which has been updated for this year, as well as race schedule info.  So even if you are an old pro, PLEASE read :)! If you have any questions after reading, don’t hesitate to be in touch.

2) You can find this and every email I send on the OMARA blog – go2omara.com.  U12/10 announcements are at this link specifically: https://go2omara.com/category/announcements/u10u12-announcements/ Also check out the U12/10 FAQs: https://go2omara.com/alpine-racing/u10u12/devo-program-faqs/ Also you can access the U10 and U12 training and racing schedule (with very basic info) here: https://go2omara.com/alpine-racing/schedules/u10u12-weekend-training-racing/

3) USSA and VARA memberships:  In order to race, every U12/10 must be a current USSA and VARA member.  If you have not registered your child for these memberships, please do so ASAP.  Both can be done online at ussa.org and vara.org, respectively.  More info on these memberships is found in the attachment.  IMPORTANT: For USSA choose, Competitor U12 or Competitor U10 (depending on your child’s age group), NOT General Member – this is not valid for competition.

4) Volkswagen presents Warren Miller’s Line of Descent Movie Premier: December 16th at OMS in the new Fitness Facility at 7 pm.  Tickets are on sale here: https://www.okemomountainschool.org/purchase-tickets-volkswagen-presents-warren-millers-line-of-descent  There are only a few tickets left!  If we sell out online, we won’t sell tickets at the door.  Get yours before they sell out!

That’s all for now!  Both new and old parents are reminded to read all communication carefully.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me.

Think snow,
