This year, we have an exciting new volunteer opportunity.  DCWST is striving to make video analysis and feedback of training sessions and races an integral part of the program for both Devo and Comp Teams.  In order for the program to succeed, the team is establishing a Team Videographer Group made up of parent volunteers.  Please read the detailed description of the program here.  More information is available

Announcements


For our returning member families, the site provides team information, including training and event schedules; team and community announcements; and team photos and videos.  We also have a “gear swap” page that provides all of us another outfitting option for our growing racers and riders. 

Privileges of MembershiP

 

Our members -- children and parents alike -- enjoy the camaraderie and support of a group focused on making the most of every winter.

For prospective member families, the site will provide answers to many of the questions you may have about our team – including perhaps the most important:  “Why do all those kids in the DCWST jackets I see in the lift lines each weekend have such big smiles on their faces?”  Now you will know!  For any questions the site does not answer, prospective member families are invited to use the Contact page (HERE) and send us your questions directly.

As we proceed through the 2016 - 2017 season I would like to thank all of our parents and board members who have worked to create an opportunity for kids to train and compete at Wisp Resort.  To our new members, please keep in mind that the Deep Creek Winter Sports Team is a non-profit, parent-run organization.  We rely heavily on parent support.  Snowboarding and skiing are lifelong sports we all can enjoy, and being part of the team is a family affair!

We are always open to suggestions.  If at any time you have questions, concerns or comments regarding the team, please feel free to contact us  using the Contact page (
HERE). 

 Enjoy the site, and think SNOW!

President's Message

Who Can Join

 

Training and racing is geared toward members aged 7-18.  No prior racing experience is necessary, but all members must be comfortable skiing all terrain at Wisp Resort.
