VPA rules require students who participate in outside teams (like Cochran's Ski Club) must attend their high school team training if the times conflict. Meaning, if BHS has a scheduled training at the same time as a U16, VPA requires that athletes attend the high school training. Additionally, all high school athletes must attend 10 practices prior to their first race -- these practices can include dryland training. Athletes must attend at least one GS and one SL races as well as "more than half" of the races a school participates in to qualify for states and districts.
Lastly, participation on BHS ski team does have a financial fee of $200/per athlete for the season for our lane space 2x a week.
