Editors note: This is a weekly column highlighting our ski coaches from around the country including elite coaches, college coaches, high school coaches, volunteer coaches, and learn-to-ski coaches. This is an effort to sample a diverse group of coaches and recognize the people who are the backbone of today’s skiers. If you would like to nominate a coach for an interview, please email firstname.lastname@example.org . Please give coach’s name, email, phone, and a small paragraph describing the nominee. The more diverse, the better.

I see so much energy coming from everyone involved in nordic skiing. From the US Team, to the 1st and 2nd graders I teach once a week in the winter, to the J2s and and J1s I see every day. I hope our junior athletes realize that they CAN compete with anyone in the world if they put in the work. We as coaches are there to facilitate the process but it's their desire that will bring them there in the end.
