Welcome to My Rally Campaign
Hi my name is Bobby Carroll and I am a 25 year old mogul skier from Park City, UT. I have been competing in moguls since I was 9 years old. Last season I was on the comeback trail after tearing my ACL in 2014. I finished as Intermountain Division Champion, 4th at Nor-Am Finals, and 8th at US Nationals, all less than one year out of surgery. With my injury in the rearview mirror, I have been spending many long hours training for this upcoming season. I started training in Steamboat Springs, CO, on snow at the ID One Pro Mogul Camp in Whistler, Canada and training at the new and improved Utah Olympic Park. I have also been working 3 jobs to fund this upcoming season. I am more driven than ever to achieve my goals of getting US Ski Team World Cup Starts. Any support from you, my community and family to help me represent you and my country would be greatly apprieciated.
Why I'm Raising Funds
As a competitive freestyle skier I travel a great deal throughout the world. Costs of travel, training and coaching expenses are in the thousands. Whenever I am not training in Park City, I work three jobs; at the Wasatch Brew Pub, for Colonial Construction, and Aisling Art. I also have voulnteered at the Youth Winter Sports Alliance, National Ability Center, Team Park City United, Fly Freestyle and Wasatch Freestyle. I am looking for help with my travel, training, event fees and coaching expenses. While I work as much as I can, when I can, I do not come nearly close to the thousands in expenses that my goal incurs.
How I Got Here
I was born on Long Island in New York. I started skiing at the age of 3, at Hunter Mountain. I ended up following my dad into the moguls at age 5 and found my passion on "Nail Driver" and " Widow Maker" at PCMR. After watching Jonny Moseley win the Gold in the 1998 Olympics, it was game, set, match for me. I knew exactly what I wanted and have been giving it my all pursuing my dreams of being a Park City Olympian. I am easily recongizable, and well-known for wearing my signature "Shamrock" knee patches wherever I go, whether competing in Australia or Switzerland, or simply training at home in the States. Some of my Results include:
- Intermountain Division Champion 2015.
- 4th Place Nor-Am Finals 2015.
- 8th Place US Nationals 2015.
- 2nd Place US Selections 2014.
- Ranked 9th in the USA before getting injured.
- Ranked 48th in the World before getting injured.
- Two consecutive top 5 finishes at US Nationals 2012,2013.
- Three top tens at US Nationals (12,13,15).
- Fifteen top ten finishes in FIS International Competitions.
