2017 Youth XC Announcements

BTC Youth Athletes and Families,

We hope you are all enjoying a fun summer.  It's the middle of summer, but before you know it, the new school year will be here and another season of BTC XC will be under way.  We are excitedly planning for another great year of practices and competition.  With the fall season just around the corner, we have a few announcements we want you all to be aware of.  Please read below for all announcements.  Registration for the fall season will be available in early August, so stay tuned for further announcements about that.  The first day of practice for this year will be Tuesday, September 12th.  We look forward to seeing you all soon.

BTC Youth XC Survey

We’ve viewed the past couple years of our youth program as a huge success.  That being said, we are committed to continuing a fun and positive experience for all our participants, and we always think we can do better.  Below is a survey with a short few questions we would appreciate your response to.  The survey should only take 5 minutes.

Registration Fee Increase

With our rapid increase in participant numbers the past couple years and the expected increase this coming year, the organizational and coaching demands of our program have significantly increased as well.  In an effort to maintain and improve upon our current youth program as our numbers grow, we have decided to increase the registration fee for the 2017 Youth XC season from $50 to $100 (limit per family increases from $100 to $200).  This increase in fees will go directly back into the needs and operations of the youth program and our continued support of the Achon Uganda Children’s Foundation, an organization that provides healthcare, education and running opportunities in rural Uganda.  We pride ourselves on keeping the program affordable, and we never want the registration costs to prevent any child from participating, so we will continue to provide need-based scholarships to our participants.  For any questions about these, contact us personally at youth@bowermantc.com.
