Summit 2024 was a resounding success, thanks to our dedicated volunteers lead by our chair, Vicki Young and our co-chair Frankie Moore. Our membership's participation year after year allows the NBS to fund our mission "To identify, support and develop..." Team NBS! 

This year the NBS has provided scholarships for 29 athletes as they pursue their quest for elite athleticism and international competition. Thanks to your support our athletes competed in World Cup events and the Youth Olympic Games.
We look forward to 2025 and your continued support of our mission. Thank you for supporting the re-election of this administration as we strive to secure spots in the 2026 Olympics.

NBS President

As Chair of the NBS 2024 Summit, I want to offer my sincere appreciation for your attendance at the Summit.  I hope you enjoyed the program we planned for you and that you are looking forward to attending the 2025 Summit. 

 This event is entirely planned and implemented by a dedicated group of volunteers whose year-long commitment to their areas of responsibility makes the Summit a success.  The NBS is run by volunteers and the organization is always open to taking on more volunteers.  You can learn more about volunteer opportunities by visiting The NBS website at

I hope your travel home from Big Sky was uneventful and that you are getting some much-needed rest.  Until next year,  let the excitement and anticipation for the next Summit continue to build!
