Waterville Valley Student Athletes Named to U.S. Ski Team

June 4, 2019

WVBBTS/Waterville Valley Academy was named the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Freeski Club of the Year for 2019.  It seems fitting that two of the club’s student athletes – brother and sister, Grace and Hunter Henderson – have been named to the U.S. Ski Team.  Both are pursuing their dreams to compete in the Olympics.

Check out John Koziol’s article about the Hendersons in the Union Leader newspaper.

The Club of the Year award is presented to a U.S. Ski & Snowboard Competition Club that has distinguished itself in providing direction to young athletes through high-level competition programs resulting in athletic success.

WVBBTS was selected for the Freeski Club of the Year award not only because of its success at the highest level of competition, but for the commitment to train and develop young athletes.

In addition to Grace and Hunter Henderson’s successes, a number of other WVBBTS athletes competed at the highest levels last season, including two Nor-Am/Rev Tour wins, four Nor-Am/Rev Tour podium finishes, five athletes who finished in the Top 10 of the Nor-Am Tour, three World Cup starts, one Top 10 World Cup result, and two athletes invited to the Junior Worlds Championships.  

The WVBBTS Freeski program is headed by Program Director Dan Shuffleton and coach Matt Crowe.  Learn more about WVBBTS and the Waterville Valley Academy.
