For better or worse, I probably wouldn’t have gone to Bear River High School without the (snowboard) team. I would say most of my team members were not traditional athletes and probably would not have been involved with school athletics if not for the ski and snowboard team. The ski and snowboard team functioned as a unique means of involving the otherwise uninvolved. By promoting diversity in the athletic programs, BRHS could have a greater overall number of student athletes and enjoy the correlated benefits of overall higher GPAs and test scores.
