Eastern Region Junior Development News

Congratulations to our medal winners at the 2006 Nationals in Bakersfield. Chad Meny, Michaela Cooper and Alex Lauretano made us all proud as did the other Eastern participants. Just making the Nationals is an accomplishment in itself and we all recognize their success. Great job!

2006 was a year to be proud of. Participation at the Regionals was up by 50% with more than 60 junior skiers. We have not had a turnout like this in many years. Lake Holly was a fantastic host and I would like to thank the club as well as Kathy Lovello for hosting a jr. party that will be tough to follow. We also acknowledge the support from Mastercraft who funded the party. They have been loyal throughout the years and we all appreciate that.

Several clinics took place throughout the year in Virginia, New Jersey and Connecticut. Virginia hosted a clinic involving more than 40 juniors which directly correlated into Regional participation….well done Virginia. Bill Fosbenner brought in Kristie Overton and Avon Old Farm skiers brought in Carly Clifton making for two additional very successful clinics. It takes many people and hard work to run a clinic and everyone appreciates the effort that goes into these. If anyone is interested in hosting a clinic for 2007, please contact me. They are an important part of junior development.

2007 is already setting up to be a great year. Just this fall, we have seen some great skiing by some juniors that are going to create names for themselves and I am looking forward to watching them next year. Twin Lakes is preparing to put on a tremendous Regionals and I predict that the skier count will be one of the highest ever. Twin Lakes is focused on doing whatever it takes to increase the participation as well as performances and I am excited for the juniors next year. Don’t miss this one.

With that being said, the Eastern Region is till the weakest when it comes to participation at the Nationals. I encourage all the juniors to pay attention to the rating system, and to work on qualifying and participating at a National level. The excitement of skiing at the Regionals can only be topped by participating at the Nationals. There is enough of a support system throughout the region for every junior, and all are encouraged to set and obtain personal goals and work their way up to becoming a National competitor.

As always, we are looking for support. Fundraising is as important as ever and although we have made some large steps in the right direction, we need to continue to raise money and host development clinics to increase skier activity and performances on a National level. We are looking for all the help we can get. Anyone who is interested in becoming involved can contact me.

Have a great winter.
