Hudson, Wisconsin — Rockmine Press is pleased to announce the release of the second edition of One Week in March: A Manual For Prospective Collegiate Nordic Skier. The book begins shipping Wednesday, June 25th.
Just like its predecessor, One Week in Marchâ€”Second Edition is designed to meet the needs of a variety of skiers, from recreational ones to U.S. Ski Team hopefuls. It leads athletes and their parents step-by-step through the process of choosing a school and ski team. It includes information on making initial contact with the head coaches, visiting the schools and teams, seeking athletic scholarships, and registering with the NCAA Clearinghouse. Readers find contact information for EVERY collegiate Nordic ski team or club in the United States, as well in in-depth profiles of nearly all of the collegiate ski team programs. Lastly, coverage of the 2003 NCAA and USCSA Championships, articles on European skiers competing in NCAA and Title IX's effect on collegiate Nordic skiing round out One Week in March.
One Week in March’s author Corey Coogan is Head Coach of the Nordic Ski Team at the Convent of the Visitation School in Mendota Heights, Minnesota. As a former Maine State Champion for Fryeburg Academy high school, and graduate of Gould Academy, Coogan's own college search brought her to St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. There she earned a B.A. in English in 1999. A devoted racer, she competes for Alpina/Madshus Racing, Honey Stinger/EN-R-G Foods and Finn Sisu ski shop.
The 2003 edition promises to be better than the one that preceeded it, as it offers 22 changed or new team profiles, and is available in CD-ROM for the first time. For further information, readers should visit Rockmine Press’s website:
