Dear FVSEF Race Team Families,
Welcome to the 2014-25 Season. We have some exciting things in store for you this season. Thanks to some successful fund raising, we are planning on some major improvements to our training venue at Whitefish Mountain Resort as well as renovations to the Team Room in Hellroaring. At the Northern Division USSA conference earlier this month we bid on an exciting combination of races and we are just awaiting confirmation that we have been awarded those races to host.
2014-2015 Registration Packet can be downloaded from Program and Registration Page. Please read all the contents carefully and provide all the information requested. This information is essential for us to maintain a complete data base of all our families as well for building an effective communication network.
This year’s packet includes:
- · Family Information Form
- · Combined Registration Form
- · Medical Release Form
- · FVSEF Training and Racing Waver Form
- · FVSEF Dispute Policy
- · FVSEF Code of Conduct Contract
- · FVSEF Photo Release Form
- · FVSEF Volunteer Questionnaire
You will note that prices for each program have increased between 5% and 10% from last season. We try to main as inexpensive a program as possible and the registration fees are structured to cover primarily the cost of coaches’ salaries. Other costs like equipment, coaches’ travel, overhead, etc. are funded by our various fund raising activities throughout the year. The primary increase in costs for 2014-15 was the decision to increase salaries for all our coaches. In order to retain our great coaching staff we feel that it was necessary to provide modest salary increases to keep them at a level that is competitive throughout the region.
Once again we are offering a 4-payment plan with payments due July 31, August 31, September 30 and October 31. Those opting for partial payments must be at least 75% paid by September 30 or a 10% surcharge will be applied.
Finally, this season we are requiring a volunteer deposit from all families including Junior Race Team families. The per-family deposit amounts are $75 for Junior Race Team families and $150 for all other families. Deposits will be refunded when volunteer requirements have been fulfilled. FVSEF has a great tradition in volunteerism, and volunteers and the real core strength of our organization!
We are looking forward to a GREAT 2014-15 Season!
Executive Director FVSEF
