Meet The Coach

Chris Hamann

I have more years in the Nordic World than most of you reading this have been alive.   As a Nordic Ski Team member I skied with Natrona County High School, and in the USSA Northern Division. During this time I was lucky to be a 2 time participant of the USSA Junior Nationals (Now Junior Olympics). I continued my racing career at Montana State University, Skiing for the Bobcats. NCAA meets, Olympic Trials, Biathalon, basically anything that had to do with the Nordic World.  And I have a BS in Physical Education with an interest in Sports Medicine.

Years pass... I live in Laramie with my family.   I have a husband, 2 dogs, 3 kiddos.  The Two oldest kids decide to become really good swimmers.  (I have spent too many years on the bench cheering.)  The Youngest one is on the LJHS Nordic Team.  See me smile.  It is now time for me to give back to the Nordic world what I know.  I love to Nordic Ski of all kinds and I love to share this great sport.  I hope to be able to help Laramie Junior High Students improve on skills and ski just a little faster. 

I don't have any pictures of me skiing as I usually have the camera.  This is me doing my other favorite thing.  River Time.  Rafting, SUP, Duckie... it is really just melted snow to play on!
