Waterville Valley BBTS Ski Educational Foundation is hosting an “Olympic Day” on Sunday, July 10, from 9-11 a.m. at the Waterville Valley Academy (88 Boulder Path Road, Waterville Valley, NH). Light refreshments will be served and all are invited to stop by.
Kim Berman, Director of Admissions for the Waterville Valley Academy, will be on hand to answer questions about the snowsports and academic academy. You’ll be able to watch and connect with several WVBBTS coaches (freestyle/ski and snowboard) who will be working with athletes on Phil’s Hill bag-jump. Meet two new members of the WVBBTS community — Alpine Program Director & U19 Women’s FIS Coach, Mike Savage, and the new Head of Academics and Student Life, Tucker Barnaby. This will be a great opportunity to learn about the Northeast’s premier snowsports training and competition center.
WVBBTS is a Community Olympic Development Program (CODP) — one of 15 CODPs representing 20 National Governing Bodies.
What is a CODP? The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has partnered with sport communities across the nation to help American youth receive the best sports development services possible. The USOC created the CODP in 1998 to help address the needs of progressing athletes from the beginning stages of development to the elite level.
The goal of the CODP is to partner with National Governing Bodies and community groups to enhance high quality, intermediate sports programs for talented youth and maximize their potential in Olympic and Paralympic sports. In order to effectively train talented and motivated young athletes, the CODP works closely with community sports organizations to take young athletes from the beginner level and train them for progression to NGB elite programs.
The Waterville Valley community is enriched by the WVBBTS programs and proudly supports this valuable organization.
