Dear Parent/Guardian:

The Del Alpine Ski Team will compete in the CISAA league this winter. Participation involves three days of after school
dry-land training, a full day on-hill practice (Date: TBA) at Snow Valley Ski Resort, and four CISAA competitions. On the
reverse of this letter is a calendar with meet dates, venues, and practice schedule. Team members need to communicate
and discuss with the coach any foreseen conflicts with making practice in order to determine whether membership on the
team is in the student’s and team’s best interest.
Equipment: Members of the team are required to bring their own equipment as well as racing helmet. It is required that
every team member come prepared for the on-hill practice day and competitions with their own individual helmet. Sharing
of helmets will not be allowed.
    o   Racing helmet must be GS with hard ear cover.
    o   For the two slalom competitions skiers must wear helmet with face protection or use a mouth guard.
Practice: See attached calendar on reverse of this letter. Practice involves attendance at three afterschool dry-land
training days & a full day of on-hill practice at Snow Valley Ski Resort (date TBA). We will take a coach bus from school,
leaving at 6:45am and return at 6:00pm for the day at Snow Valley.
Required Practice Criteria as set out by the CISAA league:
    o   For the OFSAA qualifier a skier must participate in four team practices prior to the qualifying race.
    o   For the OFSAA competition a skier must participate in eight team practices prior to the OFSAA meet.
Transportation:
    o   Snow Valley Training: We will take a coach bus from school, leaving at 6:45am and return at 6:00pm.
    o   For CISAA meets we will be using a coach bus, leaving at 6:15am from De La Salle, returning at approximately
        6:00pm.
    o   Considering there is quite a bit of travel time to and from the ski hills, it is recommended students bring school
        work or reading material to make good use of this available study time.
Expenses: The fee per team member to be paid to the school is $235. This participation fee covers expenses related to:
transportation, on-hill training day (gates, timing, coaches), and lift tickets to all competitions and training.
    o   When attending competitions, students should bring a bagged lunch or money to purchase a lunch at the resorts.
        A snack and drink for post competition or on the ride home is also suggested.
Permission Form: Please sign the attached permission forms and return to Mr. Vlahovic by Fri., Dec. 2nd, together with
a cheque for $235 made out to De La Salle College. Please include student name in memo section of the cheque.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call (416)969-8771, for Ms. Gorman (ext.311) or Mr.Vlahovic, (ext.338).



Thank You,
Ms. Gorman
