There are three phases of development not only in our sports, but in all youth sports — the discovery phase where the athlete develops a curiosity and love for sport, easily learning skills when provided enough frequency and participation at this formative prepubescent age; the intrinsic motivation phase when the athlete develops a passion for sport that motivates them to do more of their own volition; and the aspirational stage when the athlete aspires to become the best they can be at their sport, working tirelessly regardless of skill level to attain their goals.,SSCV’s success is measured not by the results of our elite athletes, but by our ability to unlock the key for each and every athlete, regardless of age, skill level or snowsport, that will enable them to evolve through each phase to become the best they can be.,It is remarkable to see how much athletes can learn through the vehicle of a competitive snowsport, not only serving them well during their time at SSCV, but providing them the confidence and skills needed to be successful in their adult lives.,These past 10 months challenged the entire SSCV community in unprecedented ways — staff, athletes and parents alike — to work harder to navigate the times.,Ski & Snowboard Club Vail’s objective is to provide the level of quality commensurate to the needs and goals of all its athletes so they can become the best they can be.

The Los Angeles Rams kept their quarterback situation under wraps for the bulk of the week, but moments before kickoff of their Super Wild-Card Weekend matchup with the Seattle Seahawks it was revealed that John Wolford would start.,As Wolford tried to go down head-first on the rushing attempt, Adams' shoulder made direct and hard contact with the top of the quarterback's helmet.,Right as Wolford took the hit, Goff began warming up, came in for two plays -- one of which was a seven-yard sack -- before the club made way for Matt Gay to hit a 40-yard field goal to cap off the 12-play drive.,McVay had noted that Goff was throwing the ball well in practice this week, but the club still gave Wolford the bulk of the starting reps. That seems to be due to the lack of confidence in Goff's effectiveness throwing the ball due to that injured right thumb, which was on full display during Los Angeles' following offensive possession where the veteran quarterback failed to complete a pass as the offense went three-and-out.,The broadcast noted that punter Johnny Hekker is the current in-game backup for Goff with Wolford out.
