Fernie Alpine Ski Team 2017/18 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 2016/17 ski year the club had 247 athletes registered in its programs and we expect similar or

greater numbers for 2017/18. 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


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

  • Coaching development and additional tablets used as a coaching tool and for athlete video review
  • Purchase duplicate timing and gate system, allows hosting of zone and provincial races
  • Racer clubhouse renovation and future rebuild program
  • Prizes and awards for the Friends ofFAST 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.
