Having fun is important, but safety is priority. Appropriate clothing and wear is the responsibility of the athlete. Proper gear includes:
-Skis, ski boots, ski gloves, ski pants, and helmets
*Team ski coat will be provided to use throughout the season
We understand children can outgrow all equipment and clothing quickly, in efforts to help athletes and their families with the growing we needs, Amanda Bess hosts a "Swamp" of clothing and equipment for the members of the team, it is a "first come, first serve" basis. BART accepts any donations of equipment, anything from the team is expected to be returned at the end of the season. For more information please contact Amanda Bess at email: firstname.lastname@example.org
