Skiing is exciting, healthy and fun for the whole family, but it can also be expensive and time-consuming. Equipment, such as a video camera for taping training sessions and races, a drill for setting courses, and walkie-talkies, is needed to ensure the team’s success. The slalom training offered in Vilnius and Ignalina is excellent, but travel expenses will still pile up as the team seeks to extend the typical 10 week season of sometimes uncertain snow in Lithuania with trips to Latvia, Czech Republic, Austria and Italy for races and additional training. To continue our development we need your help by sponsoring us in one or more of the following ways:

Because the Lietuvos Ereliai is a grass-roots program, we believe that the best support for our team will come from personal donations from interested and like-minded individuals. For a donation of $50, you will receive an official Kalnu Ereliai 2011 season t-shirt, bi-monthly email updates on the progress of the team, and a listing on our website as an official team sponsor. Additional t-shirts can be purchased for $35. Donations can be accepted in the US by sending a check to program director Jenn Virškus or by direct transfer if you are using a Lithuanian bank account (information below).

You could also help us by sponsoring an individual piece of equipment needed by the team, or the travel expenses for one or more racers to a specific event.

  • Video camera
  • Walkie-talkies
  • Gate drill
  • Timing equipment

OR, sponsor an individual racer!

  • Weekend race in Latvia 250lt ($100)
  • Training camp in Austria or Italy 1500lt ($600)
  • Lithuanian championships in Italy 1500lt ($600)
  • Salomon SL or GS race skis with bindings 1000 ($400)

Throughout the fall, we will be looking for additional corporate sponsors. Sponsor names and logos will appear on team apparel and links to company websites will be available in a prominent place on our website according to their sponsorship level.
