The Centerville Middle School Ski & Rider Club exists for the recreational benefit and social development of Middle School students through the sports of Skiing and Snowboarding.
The club actively promotes the enjoyment of these sports by supporting instruction through lessons in a safe and controlled manner while fostering positive peer interaction and the development of personal responsibility .
SO WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?
Physical, social, and recreational development that is FUN!
The club currently allows for 200 hundred students to ride a bus under adult supervision for 5 trips to Perfect North Slopes. Any Centerville City School student and family are eligible to participate in the discounted passes with accompanied lessons.
ANNOUNCEMENT - 1/15/2015
the first night of Ski Club I think the 145 members who came on the bus
with the abundant supply of the best volunteers in Centerville had a
pretty fun time regardless of the very cold temperatures and craziness
of the first night. However, Scot reminded me the first night is always
crazy! We had the largest amount of “newbie’s” join us this year and the
process of getting the lift ticket, bundling up with all the proper
clothing, finding the perfect pair of ski or board boots (a strange
uncomfortable feeling at first), getting the skis or board after filling
out new paperwork, finding a place to put the items they didn’t need
(but remembering to keep out the things they did need before the locker
locked!) and making it out to lessons! Whew! The helmet line seemed
longer that the newest Kings Island ride in the spring! With all this
chaos going on PN
accommodated our beginner members well by adding instructors as the
kids exited the rental shop. Groups were a little mixed up but everyone
went with the flow! I regret to mention that our more advanced members
in group 2 did not all make it to a lesson but next week should go much
smoother with everyone getting a lesson in. I will be working with PN to
help make our arrival more efficient. Your child’s lesson group should
appear on their lift ticket. If there isn’t one please let me know and I
will find out which one they will go to on Friday. As I walked around I
saw lots of happy faces with laughter filling the lodge. The hot
chocolate and toe warmers were a nice touch in the East lodge. We will
have our sign on the table to be signed by everyone this week since not
everyone had a chance to sign it last week. There will be 4 prizes given
out to 4 lucky signers! Don’t
forget to head over and say “Hi” to our lodge parents and fix a cup of
hot chocolate to warm up !
Parents-Please remember to be at Watts at 11:20-11:30pm to pick up your child. Don’t depend on a phone call from your child : )
The best part was hearing about the fun that was had and the new
friendships beginning to grow and everyone came home safe without
injury! Always our goal!!
Look forward to seeing everyone on Friday!
The weather this week looks much more favorable to all-PN is
expecting temperatures in the low 30’s to upper 20’s. This is still
winter temps and your child should be dressed appropriately. Please make
sure everything is packed and ready before Friday morning.
