Two weeks of great skiers and good workouts. I still cannot say enough about your children, my skiers. They work hard, play hard and really enjoy each other.
There will be no formal practices over Winter Break. This does not give skiers the excuse to stay home and play video games all day. Coach Brown handed out a training log sheet. Skiers go ski with your family, write down what you did, parents sign it, we will give you credit. There is a small kick wax kit in the warming hut. Use what you need leave the kit there.
We start up Jan.6, 2014. Less than 2 weeks to our first meet on Jan 17-18, 2014 in Laramie. I will post info on this meet just as soon as I know details. I do know we will need volunteer help of all kinds both days if you are able.
MEET COACH BROWN
Mr. Brown has been a science teacher at LJHS for the last 6 years. He has a degree in Outdoor Education and thoroughly enjoys doing everything outdoors. He took up Nordic Skiing in college as a way to rehabilitate a knee injury. The past few years he has been enjoying classic skiing with his family and skate skiing to keep in shape for his favorite summer activities. One of his greatest adventures last year was a 26 mile moon lit ski across the top of the Snowy Range. His goal this year is to be able to participate in the Wednesday night Happy Jack Ski Races.
( Coach Hamann's Comments here: I met Coach Brown this fall while he was leading the Cross Country team. I was impressed with the environment he created on that team, work ethic, fun, respect for others, personal responsibility, etc. Thanks Coach Brown for giving up family and personal time to work with this team!)
LJHS NORDIC SHIRTS
This is an optional purchase. Please do not feel obligated to buy.
Taking orders for this very awesome shirt. It is a light weight wicking/sport material. It would be a great first layer, as a top layer or wearing to school. Family and friends are welcome to order. If you loose your order form you can down load one off the Face Book page.
(Spoiler Alert: Team uniforms will look exactly like this but on a compression style top.)
