The recipient of a donation of twenty pair of evenly matched V2 850 rollerskis, the New England Nordic Ski Association is thrilled to announce the launch of its new Summer Rollerski Series. The series consists of three freestyle technique events taking place in New Durham, New Hampshire; Rutland, Vermont; and Jericho, Vermont. Top-ranked participants will compete on the evenly matched V2 skis, but skiers of all abilities are welcome to participate using their own skis.
In addition to the race series, NENSA has confirmed that two-time Olympian Andrew Johnson of Greensboro, Vermont will work with NENSA Introductory Programs Director Stuart Kremzner to present a series of coaching clinics at the conclusion of the races. The clinics are currently set for the Rutland and Jericho, Vermont events. They are designed for coaches of all levels and abilities; but specifically geared to high school coaches. Technique, training, and coaching skills will be covered and participants may use the clinics to work toward NENSA Level 1 certification.
