USSA National J2 Talent Camp Scheduled for August

FasterSkierMay 10, 2011

The 2nd annual National J2 Talent Camp will be conducted August 1- August 8, 2011 in Sun Valley, ID. The camp will provide a great opportunity for many of the top young cross country skiers in the U.S. to train together, and learn from USST staff and top club coaches.

The camp is the first step along the U.S. development pipeline for promising young skiers. Each year the location of the camp will rotate around the U.S. to other great training venues, with the same time slot each summer – the first week of August. Selections of the top 20 boys and top 20 girls were made using a best two of three individual results from Junior Nationals. (For the sprint race, the qualifying round results were compared with final heat results and the best of these two was used in the calculation). In addition to the selections, each division may petition for the addition of up to 1 boy and 1 girl to attend the camp.

Camp invite roster is listed below. Invitations and registration application will be sent to selected athletes shortly. The deadline for registering is May 20, 2011.  The cost for this eight day camp is $550, and does not include airfare. Camp details  (travel, accommodations, coaching staff, etc) will be forthcoming shortly. For more information, please contact Camp director Rick Kapala at: 208 720-7981 or via email

Camp Training Plan:

The goals of the camp are twofold. Provide camp participants with an excellent week of dryland training with other top US Juniors that serves to help motivate participants in their efforts in sk racing. Additionally, the camp will provide participants with up to date information on nutrition and health management, current international ski technique and training planning and execution.
