MMCF spends over $85,000 annually on athletic and academic scholarships for student athletes, over $10,000 on athlete recognition awards and $14,000 on grants for Inyo and Mono county Ski/Snowboard P.E. programs. MMCF is greatly appreciative of its sponsors and donors for committing to education and athletics in Mammoth. Donations and membership information can be found on the Support MMCF page.
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, have a great attitude, have superb attendance, or they may make a major personal breakthrough in their training on the mountain. Recognition is performance based. They get nice A Team hoodies, too!
