High School Nordic: Summer 2021

This summer training program is targeted at High School skiers who enjoy ski racing, who race for their high-school teams and who would like to integrate ski-specific training into their summer. Athletes will meet 2-3 days a week for ski-specific, coached training sessions, regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with an additional ski-specific strength/mobility/balance session offered over Zoom on Monday evenings. Athletes will work on rollerski skills, improve their strength and agility, learn about aspects of the sport and get outside with peers and enthusiastic Nordic ski community members.

 

Most practices will take place in Hanover, Norwich, Thetford or Lyme. No rollerski experience is required and skiers are not expected to own rollerskis. We will have introductory sessions the first few weeks. All rollerskiing will be on skate skis. We have a limited number of rollerskis available to rent for a nominal fee, though if rollerskis are an investment you’d like to make we support that! Most of those rental rollerskis have NNN bindings on them. We will distribute them at the first rollerski practice.

 

We will have an equipment clinic at the beginning of the first practice. Bring ALL your gear for inspection, consultation and adjustment help (pole cutting, ferrule mounting, etc.).

U14/U16 Nordic: Summer 2021

 

This is a summer program for rising 7th and 8th grade XC skiers who are passionate about ski racing and want to add ski-specific activities to their summer. Skiers will meet 2 days per week to work on rollerski skills, improve their strength and agility, learn about the sport and have fun outside with peers and enthusiastic XC ski community members. Coaches will send out weekly emails on Sunday or Monday with practice locations and details.

 

Athletes do not need to own rollerskis at this age. We have skate rollerskis available for rollerski days-- all program skis have NNN bindings (not compatible with older Salomon boots a.k.a "SNS"). Athletes will be expected to have their own ski boots for rollerski practices -- skate or combi boots preferable. All rollerskiing workouts require helmet, high-viz shirt/vest and ski poles with rollerski tips (rollerski tips available at Omer and Bob's or the Nordic Skater, ~$20 each. They can also assist you with mounting). Rollerski poles should be between top of shoulder and nose. Skiers should also have bounding poles, which are old poles that are slightly shorter than their classic ski poles-- approx. height is between armpit and sternum.

 

We will have an equipment clinic on Tues June 22 at the beginning of the first practice, skiers should bring all the equipment they have on the required equipment list. Rollerskis will be distributed at the first rollerski practice on Thursday June 24. A parent or guardian must be present for the first 15 minutes of practice to sign the Rollerski Safety Pledge and Rollerski Rental form with their skier.
