Sugar Bowl Academy is pleased to announce they are starting an Elite Nordic Team for the coming 2015-16 season. The team will look to pick up where the recently dissolved Far West Elite Team left off and provide world-class coaching and training opportunities to its athletes.
Head Sugar Bowl Nordic coach Martin Benes will oversee the program along with two-time Olympian, Marcus Nash. Athletes will be based out of the Royal Gorge-Sugar Bowl resort and have access to the wealth of training sites in the Truckee-Tahoe region. In addition, the athletes will make use of the recently constructed Sugar Bowl Academy facilities. Team members receive funding to offset camp and race expenses, as well as a housing subsidy.
Interested applicants should send an athletic resume and letter of intent to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 15th. The team will be formally announced at the end of June.
