Please help MAST stay affordable and accessible to all athletes!
MAST is a “cooperative” ski team available to students in grades 7-12 from the seven high schools and 21 middle schools in the Minneapolis Public School system. We offer the only opportunity for Minneapolis students to ski race in Minnesota State High School League sanctioned competitions.
MAST team members have a wide range of skiing ability levels, from beginner to expert. All ability levels are welcomed, no one is cut, everyone is coached, and everyone races on a regular basis. Our mission is to turn every team member into an expert skier… and to make skiing a sport for life.
MAST works hard to
keep costs as low as possible for skiers and their families, while also
providing them with the highest level of coaching and training possible. Along with partial funding from Minneapolis
Public Schools, each athlete is asked to pay team and school fees, both of
which help cover the team’s operating costs. Unfortunately this funding is not
enough to cover all of the expenses needed to train a team of 100 athletes. These expenses include the purchase of gates,
drills, radios, camcorders, computers, and other important equipment needed to
advance the development of our skiers; lift tickets and entry fees to races and
invitationals; a subscription to Sprongo so the athletes can watch and analyze
their skiing on their computers at home, and much more.
To help fill this funding gap, we’re hoping you can make a contribution
to MAST. Any and all amounts are greatly appreciated. If your employer has a matching gift program,
check to see if MAST is eligible for it. We’re a 501c3 charitable organization,
so donations are tax deductible.
We appreciate your support!
