I’m excited to announce this summer Rochester Nordic Racing is going to expand our programs to offer ski specific summer training to beginner and novice J3-J1 athletes. This new program will be designates as our Prep team and will mirror our already established Comp Team.br /br /The Prep Team will prepare beginner and novice skiers for advancement to our Comp Team. The focus of the Prep Team will be to introduce athletes to roller skiing, ski specific dry land training, and ski specific strength. An emphasis will be placed on establishing confidence on roller skis using developmentally appropriate drills and workouts. Not only will athletes be working on improving there skiing but also there understanding of basic training philosophies and principles.br /br /Program Descriptions:br /br /Comp Team: Designed for J2-U23 ski races competing at the regional and junior national level. The training focus includes endurance, ski specific strength, speed, agility, power, balance, mobility and flexibility. Technique will be an emphasis and will be an on-going process throughout the year. Video analysis will be utilized to address each skiers specific needs. Athletes will also be educated on training intensities, definitions, and workout application. This program will provide a solid platform towards continued excellence at the high school and collegiate level.br /br /Prep Team: Designed for J3-J1 athletes competing at the local level with little or no previous roller ski experience. The program will mirror that of the Comp Team in a developmentally appropriate setting. The goal of the Prep Team is to facilitate an athletes transition to the Comp Team.br /br /Both teams will meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and select Saturdays starting on Wednesday June 2nd and continuing through the month of August ending August 28th. In addition to our scheduled practices athletes will also have the opportunity to travel as a team to select summer training camps throughout the Northeast.br /br /For athletes who are interested in the program please contact me via e-mail or phone no later than Monday May 24th to confirm your participation in the program. Payment and registration is due on or before Wednesday June 2nd. You can mail your registration forms to me with payment or bring them on the first day of practice. But don’t forget to contact me to let me know you are going to be there! I will have more information as we near closer to the start date for those athletes who will be participating this summer. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.br /br /As noted the Prep Team is designed for those athletes with little or no prior roller ski experience.

I’m excited to say that Mr. Roger Weston has come aboard for this summer. If the name sounds familiar it should! Roger has been involved in youth skiing for over 30 years. He was the head coach at Fairport High School for 25 years. He has two children on of which (Tim) was NY State Champion as well as a skier at Middlebury College and now a coach himself at Green Mountain Valley School in Vermont. Roger was also the recipient of the USST Russell Wilder Award given to U.S adults for working with youth skiers, and in 1985 Roger was named USST domestic coach of the year. Roger has coached at 5 NCAA Championships, 8 Senior Nationals, and has been on 15 Junior Olympic Trips. Roger even coached current USST Nordic Director John Farra, USST Head Coach Chris Grover and USST Coach Matt Whitcomb. As you can see Roger has a ton of experience and knowledge. I look forward to the new ideas and energy that he will bring to the program this summer!div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2153137138194667387-8180941766297251645?l=rochesternordicracing.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
