*******WMR Code of Conduct--All athletes must adhere to WMR's Code of Conduct. Athletes who do not follow the Code may be removed from training, travel or possibly the team. If an athlete is removed from the team for a major Code of Conduct violation, a refund will not be given. The Code of Conduct is spelled out before checkout during registration.
********Volunteer Service -- All WMR alpine and freeski and snowboard program families are required to work two WMR events per family during the season. For the 2018/2019 season, we will require a check for $200 at the beginning of the season and checks will be returned after the season to all families who volunteered for two WMR events. If a family does not work two full WMR events, the check will be deposited to WMR. If a parent would like to serve on our race crew (10 or more races), you receive a full season pass. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a position on race crew.
**********Official Licenses -- WMR encourages parents of our alpine racers to be involved on every level of racing. We encourage parents to look into getting an official license so that you can be involved with our race events on the official level. Classes are generally one day and are offered in multiple locations in the fall. Please visit nyssra.org to find out more today!
