USA Wildwater Commits $7k to
2010 Team Funding!

Athletes take note!
Sponsors your help is needed!

USA Wildwater is committed to trying to provide meaningful sponsorship for our athletes and support crew. The Wildwater Committee has budgeted for $7,000 for the 2010 World Championships/World Cup Team! We know that funding often means the difference between team members going to Europe or staying home.

Obviously, we would like to do much more, but the $7k we are committing to will help get the ball rolling! Certainly, if the opportunity arrises we will do more!

The athlete sponsorship is divided into two categories with half allocated to a general team fund and the other to and performance funding.

  • The general team funding will be geared toward Team Support, Management and Coaching. Amounts not used will likely be provided to ahletes based on the venues they will be attending.

  • The Performance Fund will go to those athletes who are working the hardest and racing the best. The initial threshold to qualify for the funding of 13% is certainly obtainable by any serious athlete who dedicates themselves to wildwater racing.

For more details see the 2010 Budget at: www.usawildwater.com/Committee_Minutes/Budget_2010-01-23.pdf

We are hopeful that our sponsors will be able to help make this come true for the 2010 Team.
