Announcing the SYNC Athlete Fund

by Kris Ochs on July 10, 2019
SYNC was established in 2014 to help athletes push limits, challenge the status quo, and strive for that which is beyond the horizon. We design apparel and equipment based on athlete needs and feedback, and have supported clubs, non-profits, and independent race teams along the way. Today we are excited to announce another step toward fulfilling the needs of performance athletes, the SYNC Athlete Fund.

Today we launch a new $50,000 grant program to help fill the funding gap for ski racing athletes representing the United States in their quest for the highest levels of competition. The SYNC Athlete Fund will make grants to offset training and competition costs for the most promising and deserving athletes in the sport.
The SYNC Athlete Fund’s mission is to build a better future for the sport of ski racing by inspiring, empowering, and supporting the next generation of racers. With the help of the 501(c)(3) TA Foundation, we will provide direct funding to athletes, removing financial obstacles in their journey to the top of the sport. It’s about challenging the status quo and channeling resources to support a wider, stronger base of skiers, something we hope inspires others to do the same.
 

SYNC’s support of clubs, athletes, independent race teams, and non-profit partners is taking a big step forward with the addition of direct athlete funding.  With the national team only funding a select few athletes who meet criteria, SYNC will support athletes as they train and compete outside fully funded programs and fight to earn World Cup spots as proven in past success stories of athletes like Brian McLaughlin, Robby Kelley, Wiley Maple, and Foreste Peterson.

Life as an athlete is a constant balancing act of competing demands, juggling training schedules, travel, equipment, and education. At SYNC, we strive to create a future where the strength of the sport allows promising talent to cross off ‘full time fundraising’ from those variables and refocus that effort on delivering their best performances.

Visit the SYNC Athlete Fund page to read details on the fund and to download the application. 

I can't wait to see the applications start flowing in!

3/4 warmup

Super product, warm, easy on and off. Fits small so you might want to go up a size.
Great for training, no need to strip down to skin suit.
Love them.

Great Product

I wear them everyday, as I used to cut into my liners and skisocks on a regular basis and got scared to cut open my calves. They fit well and also keep your calves warm and snow free when you decide to not put your suit above your boot in slalom.

Essential for any racer

Perfect for training and keeping the elements off. Lightweight and great fit. Essential piece of clothing to keep in your bag at all times.

Men's 8120 Insulated Pant

Great quality, warm, functional, & good looking. What more do you want? I love this pant.

Best Bag Ever!!

Ski racing is one of those sports where you are always carrying a lot of gear. With the Locker pack, you will never have to worry about trying to fit everything in. There will never be one of those mornings where you have to debate what gets brought to the hill and what gets left behind, so you will always be prepared. The intense zippers also make it, so you know everything is protected in there. It is definitely the best bag I have ever used!
