Team Out There
now browsing by tag
Imagine dedicating every day to overcoming barriers, training & competing around the world, trying to come up with funding, clawing your way to the top of the sport only to wake up the next day and find out that there is no National Team support for you the current National Champion?
Well that is how it is if you are Tara Geraghty-Moats.
Tara also happens to be one of the two amazing young ladies on Team Out There (Nina Lussi the other) on the US Women’s Ski Jumping squad. These two amazing Young ladies have thru hard work made it to a high level in the International World of Women’s Ski Jumping as well as finishing 1 & 2 at the National Championships this season! 1 & 2 For The Flying Ladies
We do what we can to help these athletes of Team Out There thru Fundraisers, Posters, Equipment and more. They also have great support from Family & Other Sponsors.
One of Tara’s Sponsors is Darn Tough Socks from Vermont! We are now a Darn Tough Dealer, working to support those that support our Athletes as well. For the Month of November we are running a promotion on all the NEW Darn Tough Socks. Socks can be found at Darn Tough Socks
10% of All the Darn Tough Sock sales will go to Support Tara & her season on the World Cup & World Championships!
You can support other athletes of Team Out There as well!
We would like to say a HUGE congrats to Team Out There athletes Tara Geraghty-Moats & Nina Lussi for taking 1 & 2 at the Flaming Leaves National Championships jumping event this past weekend in Lake Placid!

Nearly 5 years ago when the whole TEAM OUT THERE began we never could have seen where it has led. From something that was formed to help an athlete in need on the otherside of the World has grown to 24 athletes from representing 15 different countries. As these athletes train and grow as people it is also great to see the bonds that form. A HUGE Thanks to our Amazing athletes and the amazing things they do both in & out of sport. Good People doing even Greater things!
First ~ THANK YOU to my Wife Kris, this would not happen without YOU!
A HUGE Thanks to Mackenzie for a Great Article & To TEAM Out There!

As we roll thru March and the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere our thoughts begin to think of storage wax, roller ski tips, bike rides, trail runs and the off season. Well our Partners in the Southern Hemisphere are just starting to gear up for the Winter Season. We began a New partnership with Roller Ski Australia http://www.rollerskiaustralia.com.au/ this year and along with various projects we are working on we have added some NEW Team Out There Athletes http://outthereshop.com/team/ to the mix. First came Callum Watson. It was crazy how we were working on things with RSA and Callum contacted us not even knowing about the projects that were to be coming up with RSA. With opportunities to grow Nordic abounding Down Under the wonderful Ladies of RSA look to add some additional members to the mission. We are please to announce the addition to Team Out There of Kat Paul & Jess Yeaton! To learn more about them and ALL of our amazing Team Out There athletes visit the Team page!
So 6 years ago now we began this adventure called “Out There”. It is really crazy to think how fast it has gone by. Just over 4 years ago we Started this little Athlete support project “Team Out There” working to support athletes from around the globe. Well from our first athlete folks seemed to feel it was a pretty great concept, and now it has taken flight. We just welcomed Team Out There’s 20th athlete and have been approached by another (US Athlete) whom we are working to see if She will be getting Out There as well. We find it AMAZING to receive letters & emails from athletes around the globe who are interested in being a part of what we are doing to Grow Nordic. The next most amazing thing is the emails & messages we receive form many of the athletes & their Families once they have joined the “Family” of Out There athletes and how things have changed in a hugely positive way for them. Keep an eye Out There to see the folks that join this Movement and set themselves a part by bringing
“A New Approach to Nordic”

The Rest of Team Out There ~ www.outthereshop.com/team/
Yes we are on a Mission to Grow the SPORT on Nordic. Be it thru Biathlon, Nordic, Nordic Combined, Jumping or other great sports Out There we make it our daily mission to drive forward and grow these great sports.
How do we do this? Well it is a joint effort of sorts. You our Loyal & Growing customer base shops with us in the store or online and generates sales. A good percentage of profits then goes back into supporting the Team Out There athletes around the World! http://outthereshop.com/team/ From US athletes like Ben Saxton & Katrina Howe to others like Leandro Lutz, Vineta Petersone & others we work with.
Do we do this from straight money donations? No, we do this from working with the athletes to create Opportunity. Opportunities come in many forms, monetary, equipment, marketing, fundraisers & more.
