SYNC Athlete Fund 2020/21 Athletes Announced

by Ryan Collopy on October 06, 2020

After the second year of committing $50,000 for the SYNC Athlete Fund, we are proud to announce the 2020/21 grant recipients for the upcoming season!

The funds awarded to these athletes will help to offset the costs associated with training and competition for the most deserving and up and coming athletes in the sport to help decrease the funding gap as they strive to achieve the highest levels of competition.

Applicants are selected by a Committee based on three main factors: speed, financial need, and quality of responses to questions and their letter of recommendation. After a thorough review, 32 athletes were identified who best met the Fund's mission and would benefit with support from the SYNC Athlete Fund.

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!
