BURKE MOUNTAIN ACADEMY NAMED 2019 U.S. SKI AND SNOWBOARD ALPINE CLUB OF THE YEAR

East Burke, VT May 2, 2019. We are pleased to announce that BMA has been recognized as the 2019 U.S. Ski and Snowboard Alpine Club of the Year! In a release published yesterday, U.S. Ski and Snowboard described that BMA “was recognized not only for its own programs but for its partnership with regional and national programming. Burke has aligned its programming with U.S. Ski & Snowboard to extend value across a wide swath of athletes. The club played host to over 44 races this season including Speed Week and other regional training projects, the Eastern Cup Finals and the January U16 National Championships National Performance Series (NPS) including early training for all three national regions. Burke expanded the knowledge of its staff with professional development opportunities as well as a strong commitment to both coach and official certification.” The announcement goes on to mention that “Burke athletes distinguished themselves with results at U14 and U16 levels regionally and nationally. At the FIS level, Burke had multiple athletes participating in D Team projects with a strong showing in FIS events.”

In response to the announcement, Head of School Willy Booker stated “I would like to thank all of the Burke Community especially students, staff, parents, and trustees who have contributed to the positive momentum for our program. We are humbled to be recognized by our National Governing Body with this award and are motivated to reach for new heights in the future.”
