“Aspen to the Olympics: Our Legacy of Youth Sports”
Aspen Historical Society’s 2018 Time Travel Tuesday series will feature the history of winter-season youth sports organizations in moderated panel discussions with past and present athletes, coaches, parents, and club administrators from: the two local figure skating clubs (Feb 6), Aspen Junior Hockey (Feb 13), and Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club (Feb 20).
The second panel in the series, moderated by Eliza Greenman Burlingame, features representatives from Aspen Junior Hockey including John McBride, Shaun Hathaway, Evan Boenning, Elizabeth Stewart-Severy and Andrew Doremus.
The conversations, supported by historic photos from the AHS collection, will explore how each organization has impacted the careers and lives of athletes across several generations, highlighting the stories behind the clubs, the accomplishments of their graduates, and the many services the groups provide to our community.
To celebrate the spirit of the 2018 Winter Olympics, the final panel on March 6th will feature athletes with connections to our small mountain town who have reached the pinnacle of their sports, to represent the United States at the Olympic games. This final presentation, hosted in the theater at the Wheeler Opera House, will focus on the Olympians’ experiences with sports as kids: how did different clubs, groups of people, specific coaches, and perhaps even the support of a community, shaped the many roads from Aspen to the Olympics.
