TEAM AWARDS

A Team

Athletes are nominated for this award by their coaches for demonstrating performance above and beyond normal efforts. A Team athletes exceed the goals we set in an environment of high expectations. They may achieve a significant result in competition, or they may make a major personal breakthrough in their training on the mountain. Recognition is performance based. A Team athletes are chosen for awards ceremonies on December 2015 and March 12, 2016. They get nice A Team hoodies, too!

Academic Elite Team

This award honors our young athletes who excel in school as well as on the snow. In 2015, over 100 athletes qualified for the Academic Elite Team. Mammoth Teams athletes third grade and over with a grade point average of 3.5 and above are welcome to apply. Please see the application for details, and note that athletes must apply for this award in order to be considered.
