2021 – 2022 SARS Registration Opens September 1st!

2021 – 2022 SARS registrations will open on September 1st.  SARS programs fill up quickly so mark your calendars.  Stay tuned for program details and updates.

Important info before you register

When completing your registration please read the program descriptions first to make sure you are selecting the program that best suits you / your child .  Also, please carefully read the agreement to assume risk of injury, athlete agreement, family volunteer policy, and Schweitzer release thoroughly.
Communication:  Email and our website are the primary sources of communication for SARS.  We will be updating our email contacts periodically this fall with final updates being made in October.  When registering please submit all email addresses that your family intends to use so that we can effectively communicate with each of you.  If you are not planning on returning to SARS we will move your contact(s) to our alumni and friends email group after the October 15th deadline.
Team Jackets:  Team jackets are included in YSL 2&3 day, U14, NWC, FIS and Freeride programs.  When registering you will see that submitting your jacket size is a requirement this year for applicable programs. The jacket fitting chart will be within the registration portal.  We will also be offering a jacket fitting on the weekend of September 10th and 11th at the Alpine Shop (one of our platinum sponsors) here in Sandpoint during the equipment sale.  You can change your preferred jacket size at this time if you’ve already registered.  If you’re unable to attend the sale, your child will receive the jacket size that was submitted on the registration form.  However, jacket inventory is still in question as our supplier is doing their best to fulfill our order, so cross your fingers.
COVID 19 related program amendments:  We are carefully monitoring the uptick in local COVID cases and want our valued membership to know that we’re going to exhaust every effort to deliver a great product in a safe and responsible manner again this season.  SARS is prepared to make necessary program modifications if needed once the winter season has arrived.  For now, we are sitting tight and hoping for the best.
A few changes that we made last season have stuck thanks in part to your feedback.
  • SARS training sessions will not include a long lunch break.  We will run our program straight through with times of approximately 8:45 – 1:00.  We anticipate being able to take quick breaks as needed for food, water, warmth, and restrooms.
  • SARS will not offer a Holiday Camp only option this year.  Holiday camp will be reserved for those enrolled in the entire season.
  • SARS will not offer YSL 1 day programs for U10 and U12 athletes.  We will continue to offer YSL 1 day for U8’s and the STARS feeder program for 5 and 6 year olds.

Welcome to the 2020/2021 winter season!

With Schweitzer set to open in late November, SARS has been preparing for another exciting winter of alpine ski racing and training. While we know things are going to look a little different on the mountain this year, we are doing our best to make sure the SARS program looks as normal as possible. Our programs filled up in record time this year, reaching capacity just three weeks after registration opened in September. If you are a family looking to get your kid into SARS, please reach out to our program director, Jamie Landwehr. We still have openings in our Junior program (ages 12 and up), which you can learn more about here.
