We are a team in desperate need of new uniforms. Our current budget will not cover purchase of any new gear and would only fund the purchase of 1 uniform. We have some talent on the team that has been labeled as up and coming new talent to watch and we want to build a team that supports and increases the potential of these talented athletes.
Our school uniforms are no longer purchased by the school. A racing suit is $125 and we will never be able to fun this from team money. Current athletes are using uniforms purchased from the 1970's and 1980's. To increase our team pride we need to look and feel like the other teams we are competing against.
Your story, your background
Our team has had a new coach every 1-2 years. I am hoping to bring some stability and longevity to the position and to build a team with a reputation within the school and conference that is seen as a contendor and a strong program.
What you need
I would like to be able to purchase 30 racing suits from this site. The cost is $125 per suit. http://www.jakroo.com/custom-products/thor-junior-nordic-race-suit/
We have represented on our team athletes train with olympian Kevin Brochman, one of which has been told he is probably the top 8th grader in the state right now. We have another athlete who competes in the central U.S. in the nordic combined event. We have a very young team with a lot of pontential and motivation and we would like to attract other young athletes as we build the team.
Coaching staff includes Andy Schwen, Joel Paulson, Darci Olson. We are having a team fundraiser meal at Davani's in Coon Rapids on January 28th from 4-8 p.m. as well.
