Team Breck is proud to partner with Summit School District and the Peak School to serve our full time Alpine and Freeride student-athletes. Team Breck believes our athletes are students first and we work with school counselors, athletes and parents to encourage academic success. We provide the most flexibility of any regional ski team, so even our full time athletes can pursue the competitive academic IBDP program at Summit High School.
All Summit Middle and High School, and Snow Peaks student-athletes wishing to ski during the school week must register as "academic athletes" with their counselors. Middle School students can do so at the beginning of the school year, while high school students must register prior to the school year. Students must meet their school's attendance and performance requirements to continue to be released for ski training.
Middle and High School students can choose to take classes online to gain more on-mountain training or utilize their school's academic athlete early release so they can take all of their classes in person.
The Freeride Full Time team will provide an early and midday start time for athletes to accommodate our online and in person students.
For 23/24 Season, Freeride Team will not provide van transportation from school to training due to the varying release times for our online and in person students.
