Hope all had a great break. It was great to see many of you out skiing with families.
With all the new snow the trails are in really good shape. Classic tracks are being set and Nordic Skiing could not get much better. (OK the wind and snowbanks in the parking lot are a little challenging!)
We will start right off on Jan.6, 2014 after school. If you filled out training logs or skied with parents or adults please have them sign off on those times. By state mandate you need 10 practices to participate in meets. We could possibly use some of these parent skis as practices. If you joined the team after we started these will be important.
Orders for team shirts are due Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014. These are only if you want to. We will provide a team uniform shirt for meets. Different in style than these you can order. (Skiers provide their own pants, or tights for races.)
Here is this weeks plan. As always plans have a way of changing so keep that in mind.
I would like to lengthen our daily workouts by 15 minutes. This would get us home around 5:45PM .

Skiers Choice for skis
3k time trial
Our first race is a 2 day event, January 17 &18. ( Friday and Saturday)
I do not have specifics yet. When I get them I will post.
I do know that volunteers are always needed. We will partner with the High School families as this is a combined meet. See list below.
Every day we will need:
Medical Support (EMT or Ski Patrol)
Team Snacks (Oranges, cookies, Gatoraid etc.)
Help waxing LJHS team members
And so many more places that I cannot think of right now.
Please let me know if you can help, what day(s) and if you want to be out on the course skiing or in a non ski position. Names and phone numbers would be helpful so I can pass it in the the race organizers. (LHS Coaches)
Also parents please feel free to cheer, ring cow bells and blow horns just as loud as you can for your skiers.
