Sponsorship Program

Fernie Alpine Ski Team 2018/19 Sponsorship Program

The Fernie Alpine Ski Team (FAST) is a registered non-profit downhill ski club dedicated to introducing children from the ages of 4 to 20 to the sport of downhill skiing.

In the 2017/18 ski year the club had 254 athletes registered in its programs and we expect similar or greater numbers for 2018/19. FAST has members from Fernie, Sparwood, Crowsnest, Lethbridge, Invermere, Pincher Creek and Calgary just to mention a few and we have kids competing locally, provincially and nationally.  The club has produced athletes which have had significant success at the National and International level including Emily Brydon, Danielle Sundquist  (nee Poleschuk)  & Tyler Werry.

 

Among many ongoing initiatives at the club this year, with your help, we are looking to fund:

  • Water injection infrastructure on Emily’s and Spruce Lee to create a more consistent and race like training courses
  • Reconstruction and improvement of our storage hut at the top of Kodiak
  • Coaching development and additional tablets used as a coaching tool and for athlete video review
  • Ongoing – Racer clubhouse renovation and future rebuild program
  • Prizes and awards for the Friends of  FAST race series

A big focus of the club is on the Friends of FAST race series including the club championship. The race series promotes ski racing, participation and teaches our kids the love of competitive spirit and helps to instill a passion for skiing that will last a lifetime. With a safety focus, the money raised goes towards medals, prizes and race equipment for the club. The series will be marketed throughout the year, giving you great exposure:

  • On our web site- last year we had over 20,000 page views and approached 900 unique visitors in our busiest months
  • Various newsletters throughout the year
  • At each race and during awards
  • At our year end banquet

A friend of FAST sponsorship includes a number of valuable benefits and is designed to give your business maximum exposure.  We have a 6-level sponsorship tier which provides an entry point for any company wishing to get involved with the club.
