Terms & Conditions – SSCV Financial Policy, Colorado Discount Eligibility and Volunteer Requirements

Ski & Snowboard Club Vail (SSCV) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the oldest non-profit in the Vail Valley. As a non-profit organization, SSCV raises approximately 20% of its annual operating budget through fundraising events, competitions, grants and tax-deductible donations. The remaining 80% of the budget is income earned from program fees and other items that go directly to SSCV’s operating costs.

Since program fees only pay for approximately 65% of the total cost of the programs offered by SSCV, the club has always had a pay before you play philosophy. The following is a summary of the financial policy at SSCV. Please see the SSCV Parent Athlete Handbook for more information.

It is understood that by registering for any Ski & Snowboard Club Vail program, all program fees are due and payable at the time of enrollment. All families are required to submit a credit card on file and authorize SSCV to charge this card in the event of non-payment.

Refunds of SSCV  athletic program fees are considered for season ending injuries only.  This season ending injury refund assumes complete withdrawal from all SSCV programming including any Strength & Conditioning services at the Minturn Fitness Center or elsewhere. There are no refunds for voluntary withdrawal, dismissals, or absence for any other cause or reason. There are no refunds for academic related fees such as the VSSA academic coaching fee.  Please see the SSCV Parent Athlete Handbook for details.  

Parents and/or participants are responsible for paying all travel expenses incurred with SSCV and the credit card on file will be charged if travel expenses are not paid in a timely manner.

Delinquent accounts for program fees, travel or other expenses will be subject to athlete suspension from all SSCV programming. Finance charges of 1% on any balance over 30 days past due will accrue monthly. Any seriously delinquent accounts may be subject to potential collections processes. Please see the SSCV Parent Athlete Handbook for more information regarding past due accounts.

In recognition of the fact that SSCV draws the majority of its support from the local community and throughout the state of Colorado, a financial discount is offered to state of Colorado residents. Additionally, scholarships are available based on financial need.

Non Resident Program Fee (Non-Discounted)

The Non Resident Fee represents the total cost of providing each respective SSCV program. This fee is available to any SSCV participant, without restriction. This fee applies to any participant who does not qualify for the Colorado State Resident Fee, or to any that prefer to pay the non-discounted costs of the programs.

 Colorado State Resident Fee (Discounted)

The Colorado State Resident Fee is available to anyone whose immediate family owns or rents their primary home in Colorado for a minimum of 9 months per year. 

Volunteer Requirements for All SSCV Families

SSCV relies heavily upon the generosity of hundreds of volunteers who give thousands of hours to help with competitions, fundraising and various club tasks and events.   SSCV requires all families to complete a predetermined amount of “volunteer points” throughout the year from May 1 – April 30.  Volunteer points are earned by completing various duties/jobs which are assigned a specific number of points.  The number of points required per family is based upon the athlete’s program (in the case of multiple athletes, it will be the program which has the highest point requirement).  There are numerous opportunities, both on and off the snow, throughout the year.  Click here for the 2020-2021 volunteer point details.   If a family does not complete all of its volunteer obligations during the period from May 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021 they will be required to pay an amount to SSCV by May 30, 2021 equal to 20% of the program dues for each child enrolled at SSCV for the 2020-2021 season. 

The work and dedication of our volunteers is essential to SSCV’s ability to offer quality programming at the most affordable cost possible.  Ski & Snowboard Club Vail cannot exist without the incredible support and dedication of all our members and friends.  For more information on your volunteer point balance and on-snow volunteer opportunities please contact the SSCV Club Manager at tmiletti@skiclubvail.org and for more information on off-snow volunteer activities please contact  the Director of Advancement at sschmidt@skiclubvail.org.
