DEVO Details

The TUNA Devo Ski Team is for skiers in elementary and middle school .  Practices are generally held at Mtn. Dell, however, due to variable snow conditions this is subject to change  

Devo is the largest program in TUNA, and an emphasis has been put on challenging the more experienced skiers on their way to Junior Comp in middle school. For this reason, skiers will be grouped by coaches with their peers, but also by skill level. Because children this age change so quickly, coaches will evaluate the skiers and place them accordingly to meet the challenge of safety, ability, and fun.

Volunteers

TUNA runs on volunteers. Each family will be asked to volunteer for at least 3 sessions of Devo. No skiing experience is necessary, but it’s a huge plus! We have positions that range from arena parent (that warm smiling face a kid needs to see when they need their parent), chasing the back of the group on skis, and off-snow tasks that can be completed outside the DEVO times. .
