Junior Skier Survey gets a reride

The junior skier survey has been provided a reride, due to failure of tournament supplied equipment.

It turns out that the prior survey and attempts to get mass participation ran into some problems. So in an effort to get junior skiers and their parents to participate in the survey, the survey has been updated, retooled and sent back out for all qualified B 1-3 and G1-3 skiers to complete. It can now be completed via survey monkey and accessed from nearly every device imaginable. So please take a moment to complete the survey, or encourage your children to complete the survey if you have not already done so.
Thanks for your assistance in helping inform the sport so that we can encourage competition, engage our youth , and keep the sport fun for all involved.

Junior Skier Survey RE: Nationals Participation

AWSA President Jeff Surdej, has sent out a survey to all Boys 1-3, Girls 1-3 and Men 1, Women 1 skiers regarding participation in the AWSA Nationals. Please take a moment to fill it out if you or your junior skiers received the survey. If you have multiple junior skiers and they have the same address please send an additional email address so that surveys can be counted for each junior skier.

Yes, there is a prize for the Region who has the greatest percentage return on surveys. So lets go West Region, return your surveys. As of Sept 15th the West is in last place, we can do better than that.
