December 16-20 Practice Schedule

WOW! What a great first official week of practice for this team!  Every time we get on the bus there are more skiers.  27 joined us for Wednesday practice.  Parents, you should be really proud of your kids.  They are responsible, kind, good workers and a joy to be around.  I am looking forward to a really great rest of the season.

Starting Monday,we have a strong coaching team to lead the Scout Nordic Program.

Coach Heath Brown; You students know him as Mr. Brown your teacher at LJHS. You might know him as Coach Brown head of the LJHS Cross Country track program. 

Coach Elizabeth Bentley (EB); EB skis for the UW Nordic club team and is a former LJHS Nordic Skier.  She brings to our team a vast knowledge in racing experience, waxing techniques and excitement.

Coach Chris Hamann; you all know me by now. I feel that the Scout Nordic team is in good hands to do great things.

PRACTICE for December 16-20, 2013
Conditions are perfect for skating.  So unless we get more snow and tracks can be set, bring your skating equipment.  Those of you who have 1 pair or are beginner skiers stick to classic.

Christmas Present Ideas for your skiers:
A small kick wax kit for classic skiing. Green, Blue, Purple, Red waxes a cork, and a scraper.
A fanny pack to carry a water bottle and a water bottle.
A tube of  F4 goo for those skis with fish scales.
Running tights or workout pants.  Black. 
These are just suggestions! Not requirements by any means.  The team always has wax for practices and meets.

Please go through all your equipment and put your name on everything.  Many of us have rented from the same store and we have very similar looking gear.  Easily mixed up.  Use duct tape or masking tape no permanent markers on rental stuff.

  I am a proud Fire Tight Wearing Coach!  Every skier we took to Lander skied their hardest, cheered for others and conducted them...
