Fueling Your Athlete

By Bailey Franklyn, Harvest Table Nutrition

Fueling your child and focusing on their nutrition can be key to optimizing their performance. Athlete nutrition doesn’t have to be complicated, or include supplements and sports drinks. There are a few key nutrients to be mindful of, and most young athletes can meet their needs through a balanced diet, with lots of variety…

Become a Fun & Glory team owner. If your team wins, you win! 
Join us January 13 at the Stampede Après to purchase your team. 
Calcutta: Open to all members, whether you race down the slopes or cheer from the sidelines. 

What is the Fun & Glory Calcutta?

Become a team owner by purchasing a team in a live auction format. Team ownership is open to all members who wish to participate (whether you are racing in Fun & Glory or not).  Teams will be available for purchase at the Calcutta Après on January 13, 2024.  Winnings will be awarded based on team results at the end of the season.  The amounts paid for the teams will be put into a pool. Prize money will be awarded as follows; 10% will be paid to the ski programs fundraiser, 50% will be paid to the purchaser of the winning team, 25% paid to the purchaser of the second-place team and 15% paid to the purchaser of the third-place team.  

How Does It Work?

For the 2024 season, the Fun & Glory league will be adding Team Captains and a player draft element but will remain a team focused event. The Fun and Glory Committee will rank each team captain and they will represent their team for that tier. Each round of the draft will constitute a tier with Team Captain picking order randomly selected. Team Captains will be provided with a list of participants prior to the draft. Scoring: The top racer from each tier will receive 8 points, 2nd place 7 points and so on until all racers have been awarded points. Team score will be based on each team member’s individual race points calculated together using only their top 3 races from the season. 

Fun and Glory Ground Rules 

  1. No substitution of racers (i.e., giving your bib to someone else or racing in the place of the registered racer). 
  1. No downhill suits.
