GRPSki & Biathlon are now accepting applications for the 2022-23 training year as well as for their summer U23 training programs. Applications will be due by end of day April 10 and decisions will be made by April 17.

In exchange for coaching, use of training facilities and travel support, GRP year-round and summer U23 athletes are asked to do work that contributes to the mission and operation of the Center. Projects include: coaching youth and masters in skiing, biathlon and mountain biking; managing and improving the trail system; growing vegetables for the Dining Hall; organizing events and programs at the Center; assisting the Communications Team with writing, blogging and social media.

New this year, there will be both on-campus and off-campus program options for year-round GRP team members. The off-campus option will allow more flexibility for an athlete who wishes to find their own housing near the Center, and work a remote or in-person job that’s not at the Center. Off Campus athletes are expected to be present at team training and meet the same expectations as residential athletes:  be a part of the team, Center and greater Craftsbury community.

If this sounds like work you would enjoy, while taking your skiing and/or biathlon to the next level, then you may be a good fit.
