Remember the team goals, listed by year skiing! Review them to see what you've accomplished and have to work on...
Spring, summer and fall are also great times to be in the weight room. Be sure to work closely with any in-season coaches, but all your effort will pay off during ski season too!
2016 Summer Roller-ski Program
Individualized summer roller-skiing plans:
The individual summer plans are there for any athlete to print out, tape on the fridge or their bathroom mirror, and commit to based on their schedule and skiing goals. Team summer sessions are easily swapped for a work-out listed in any plan.

Summer roller-ski day trip: TBD (a yet to be determined Saturday in July)
Participation cost is $100 for coaching and roller-ski rental; $50 for just coaching. Each athlete is issued a pair of skate roller-skis, a pair of roller-ski poles and a reflective vest (to keep for June and July). Athlete's are required to wear a helmet and the vest at all times while roller-skiing on team equipment. Be seen! No hood-ornaments are allowed.
Some of the fun we have during sessions:
• Single ski drills
• No pole drills
• Ball games (on skis)
• Agility courses
• Serpentine courses
• Reactionary drills
• Speed work
• Time trial(s)
• Acceleration drills
The purpose of the summer roller-ski program is to offer skiers the ability to maintain their ski form through summer. Roller-ski sessions are engineered to complement athletes' participation in other summer training programs. Come winter however, it will be your off-season training, both elements of roller-skiing and other sports, that will propel you ahead competitively in skiing. Take advantage both of the social and coaching opportunities, and also the take-home equipment this summer!
