The Red Mountain academies received almost $8,500; Black Jack Cross Country Ski Club, $2,580; and the Red Mountain Racers, $3,900.

Each of these entities offer a full-spectrum package to student athletes, aged 13-18 years, including coaching and educational options to meet training and competitive needs.
