Rob Boyd Bursary | Nominations Deadline extended to Tuesday, April 18

The ‘Rob Boyd Bursary’ is awarded annually, to the next seasons U18 athletes, making current 2nd year U16’s eligible for the award as well.

For the 5th anniversary, Rob is awarding not 2 but 3 deserving athletes a $1,000 bursary each that will be credited to their WMSC account. In time, as the fund grows, additional bursaries may be awarded.
Candidates should embody the ‘WMSC Teamship Values’ and include (but not limited to):
• Passion for the sport – ski racing as well as knowledge/skills/desire to ski all aspects of the mountains.
• Fairplay – showing positive attitude, assisting fellow athletes and appreciation for officials/volunteers (on or off the slopes).
• Be a role model/mentor/ambassador for the sport (yet perhaps have a bit of a wild side?!?).
• Work ethic – arrive early, stay late (to take one or two more runs – off piste?), show a willingness to assist coaches, collect/transport training equipment and gear when necessary
• Show potential and desire to be successful in racing, and when appropriate, give back to the sport.
Nominations should be submitted by teammates or coaches directly to the WMSC Bursaries Committee at explaining why the individual should be considered for this award. Submissions should be in letter form and include anecdotes or examples that exemplify the individuals’ character and/or actions deserving of recognition and support

Coaches Appreciation

In the next few days, each family will be charged $50 per athlete for end of the season tips. This goes to the coaches for the enormous commitment that they make throughout the season. Tips are distributed amongst the coaches within each age category relative to the days that they worked through the season and coaches will get their tips at the end of the season.
