The goal of the Student-Athlete Support (SAS) Program is to foster long term student-athlete development by assisting student-athletes in balancing academic and snowsports education. In line with the Club's mission, the SAS Program equips student-athletes, and supports parents, with a toolkit to pursue personal excellence in skiing and snowboarding as well as in their intellectual, social, and educational pursuits. Through weekly study hall and community educational events, as well as with regular communication between families, coaches, program and executive directors, school administrators, and college and post-graduate counseling, the SAS Program fosters an integrated approach to students’ athletic and academic careers. By partnering with Teton County Public and Independent Schools to develop year-round programming, the SAS Program ensures that student-athletes can pursue both a rigorous academic schedule and high-caliber athletic training and competition. Additionally, the SAS Program manages injury and concussion protocols and has been working with JHSC leadership to develop the implementation and tracking of the Core Values. The SAS Coordinator, Nicolette McIver, collaborates closely with the Alpine, Nordic, Freeride, and Backcountry Program Directors and coaches to integrate goal-setting, time-management, and citizenship skills to ensure student-athlete success and well-being on and off the hill.
