Team NBS


Under the administration of Gus Pannel (1977-1982), the Olympic scholarship fund was created and Team NBS was formed.


Team NBS has provided scholarships and funding for more than 45 athletes since it’s inception.


We have had four (4) Olympians, two (2) in the Paralympics, Bonnie St. John and Ralph Green, and two (2) in the Olympics, Seba Johnson and Errol Kerr, both representing Caribbean Nations.


We continue our commitment and maintain our focus on Team NBS representing the United States in the Olympics.


Our team “NBS” trains all over the country. We presently have sixteen (16) athletes representing all four regions in the National Brotherhood of Skiers. Five (5) of our athletes currently train in residential boarding programs. During their training blocks they can be on snow six days a week. We continue to increase our partnerships with training academies, educational institutions and Snowsport specific entities every year. .
