Training Expenses 2019/2010 Season
Welcome to My Campaign to Raise Funds for Training
I’m Bella Bacon, a 15 year old competitive Slopestyle Skier from Western New York. I’ve been offered the ability to train with the U.S. Freeski Team national development coaches. I’ve also earned a place on the Agenda Freeski High Performance Team, based in Ontario, Canada (Lead by Geoff Lovelace.) I maintain a 95 GPA.
Why I’m Raising Funds
My ski team travels often and there is a lot of contests in the USA that I need to get results at to move up to FIS level contests. The costs associated with all of this are well over 10 grand! My parents are doing all that they can do but we need your support.
How I Got Here
My family and I have worked hard at this for years and now (hopefully) we can see the light towards a spot on the US Rookie Ski Team. At the end of last season I competed in two Open/Semi-Pro class events and podiumed at both. This was a big step up into the big leagues!
We have been traveling up to Canada the last few seasons to train with Agenda Freeski. This coming season I will be traveling on an intense competitive circuit with their High Performance Team. Just last season, my former team mate Megan Oldham moved up to the Canadian National Team and won the World Cup! This validates Agenda’s ethics and coaching standards. Team Agenda trains year round and we travel 3 hours North on a regular basis.
Join Me in Achieving My Long-term Goal as a U.S. Olympic Athlete!
Thanks to a newfound relationship with the U.S. Freeski Team national development coaches, my hopes are to join their pipeline for a future spot on the Olympic Team. I know that this is only the beginning of a long and difficult road. What I’ve learned to date, the challenges I’ve overcome, my work ethic, and my undying passion for skiing, places me in an ideal spot with a unique set of skills and abilities. The only thing that will help me realize this dream will be exposure to top slopestyle venues and competitions! I want to fly the USA flag. Please be there with me when I cross the finish line!!
