WAITLIST UPDATE : Current status is that several winter programs are full and there is a waitlist until we recruit more coaches.  All Waitlist requests will be notified as spots become available.  Waitlists can hold off on memberships until they have a confirmed spot.

    With the COVID-19 precautions put into place meeting locations are very spread out and too much for coaches to manage on their own. SS Freestyle is looking for volunteers that can help set up the meeting locations and coordinate program groups each day we are running programs.  This is approximately 30 to 45 minutes of time.  Please contact Wade at volunteer@ssfreestyle.com for more information or to express your interest.

    Hello Freestyle Parents and Athletes,

    It is a bit of an understatement to just say the last couple of weeks has been not only a disappointment from a club perspective but a challenging and unique time in world history.  The current pandemic and the social, economic symptoms that come with it are presenting some  unique situations for everyone. 

    The Silver Star Freestyle Club is no different.  The decisions made to cancel all remaining Freestyle Canada sanctioned events plus the one week closure of Silver Star Mountain Resort and now season ending closures of other resorts near by, are by all means very appropriate decisions.  The recommendations of Health Canada and Provincial Health Authorities to socially distance ourselves, practice good hygiene, and stay close to home are prudent and necessary.

    Given these recommendations and the current status of mountain operations it is also necessary for the SSFC to cancel all remaining programming for the winter season effective immediately.  Your board has met frequently over the past week and had suspended final judgement on programming for the season until now, hoping that we could put something together that was safe, responsible, and appropriate.  At this point full-filling that mandate is not possible and cancelling the remainder of the season is the right thing to do.

    Please note that your board will continue to meet and will communicate further regarding this decision including if refunds, credits, or make-up programming are necessary.  If you have any questions please feel free to email me at president@ssfreestyle.com 

    By no means should the end to this season be a reflection on the amazing accomplishments our club has achieved this year.  From record breaking membership numbers, resurgence of our Fundamentalz numbers, a massive G-Team, the clubs largest snowboard contingent ever, to an outstanding number of provincial and national competition invites.  This season was loaded with great things and has set the tone for a wicked off-season and Winter 2020-2021.  

    Take care,

    Ryan Johnson, President
