The Rochester Nordic Ski Team, a part of the Rochester Active Sports Club (RASC), will be hosting a ski clinic with US Olympic skier and CXC Team Vertical Limit member Garrott Kuzzy on Sunday June 13th at Essex Park in Rochester. There will be a 2 hour clinic for masters and coaches starting at 1:00pm and a junior clinic starting at 3:30pm for 1 hour. Cost is a $20 donation to the RASC for the masters/ coaches clinic, which will also satisfy the Technique Clinic requirement for USSA Level 100 Coaches Certification. The junior clinic is free and coaches are welcome to attend as well.
The clinic will include a number of strength, balance, and technique ideas and will be different from any clinic you’ve attended before! Of course, you’ll get to hear stories first hand from the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver as well.
Bring running shoes, ski poles, ski boots, helmet, water, and rollerskis if you’ve got them. We will try to have several extra pairs of rollerskis on hand for folks who don’t have their own to try.
For junior skiers, Garrott plans to hold a shorter clinic from 3:30 to 4:30 on the same day (Sunday June 13th). The cost for juniors is $0 – probably the best deal you will ever get for an hour’s coaching from an Olympic skier. No roller skis will be needed for the junior clinic.
If you would like to participate, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 28.
