The ARCO Grant is positioned under the  WCDF umbrella to provide merit and needs based support to the nation’s best U16 athletes. ARCO (carving in Italian) is founded by Olympian River Radamus, who believes that grant giving alone does not ensure that talented and committed athletes are able to advance regardless of means. Athlete, family and organizational education and mentoring on how to maximize opportunities and become successful are key.  River learned at a young age that forming habits to take advantage of your local mountain to work on your skiing in addition to the designated training times is the recipe to turning yourself into the ski racer and skier you aspire to become. 

This missed opportunity of efficient use of resources and maximizing all local opportunities is the cultural shift that the ARCO Grant hopes to inspire.
