Parent/Athlete Resources

What do you and your athlete need before training and competition?

*******Volunteer Service -- All WMR full  program families are required to work two WMR full-day race events per family during the season. For the 2019/2020 season, We will require a payment of $200 at the beginning of the season if you do not want to volunteer. If families do not volunteer for two full-days of races during the season, we will issue you a bill for $200 at the end of the season. If a parent would like to serve on our race crew (10 or more races), you receive a full season pass. Please email sara@westmtn.net if you are interested in race crew. We also encourage all full program familiies to help with all the West Mountain School's fundraising events as WMS supports WMR with program scholarships, safety equipment and supplies that helps keep program fees more affordable for everyone.
