Grüvin’ to Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band at Canyons Resort on a beautiful YWSA benefit day!
Thanks to everyone for supporting our “Farewell to Winter” benefit. Nearly $45,000 was raised for the Youth Winter Sports Alliance and affiliated teams during the Canyons “Farewell to Winter” benefit days, (from March 24 through the end of the season). Canyons generously made 1000 deeply discounted lift tickets available for sale with all proceeds benefitting the YWSA. Tickets were sold online, at JANS, Silver Bean Café at the Junction and by affiliated teams. Axis Freeskiing was the top-selling Club, earning nearly $5,000 for its efforts. Way to go!
Our “Farewell to Winter” continues! Purchase discounted Canyons lift tickets (good through the end of the season), with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the Youth Winter Sports Alliance and our member teams. (Limited quantity available. Sales will continue until sold out.) Purchase tickets online, or at JANS or White Pine Touring. Questions? Call 435.214.0792. Hope to see you there!

In late December, YWSA’s Grants & Scholarships Committee was pleased to award $44,000 in program grants to YWSA member teams. Grants were awarded to support athlete/coach education, equipment, uniforms, and race support for YWSA’s member teams.
Additionally, more than $25,000 in scholarships were awarded to 30 junior athlete applicants to support training, equipment and competition travel expenses for the 2012-13 season.

Kids from all over Park City are participating in Get Out & Play’s new Ice Program this month! Thanks to the Park City Ice Arena staff and all of our program volunteers for helping to introduce ice sports to Park City’s kids!
The Youth Winter Sports Alliance and Park City Ice Arena have launched the first season of Get Out & Play Ice! Over 60 Park City elementary students will get out on the ice for five weeks this Fall, and again for another five weeks this Spring. The program is an introduction to all aspects of ice sports.
The first two weeks have been all about basic, fundamentals of getting around on the ice.
Week three will be hosted by the Figure Skating Club of Park City, and will give students a general scope of figure skating.
Week four will be hosted by the Park City Hockey Club, and will give students a chance to learn the game of hockey.
Week five will be hosted by the Park City Speedskating Club, and will introduce students to the thrilling sport of speed skating with Olympians Derek Parra and Catherine Raney-Norman.
Thanks to the Park City Ice Arena staff and our program volunteers to introducing Park City’s kids to fun on the ice. For more information on Get Out and Play please click here.
