Welcome to Irondale Nordic Skiing 2019-2020
Summer Training Information:
The end of winter is finally looking likely! Time to start thinking about what you will do this summer to make you next ski season the best ever! I stongly encourage you to consider signing up for a summer training option. I help coach the Vakava Jr program through Finn Sisu, but there are other options out there. Vakava Jr meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Some of our best skiers have trained with this group and I have had my own kids (Hanna and Bjorn) do the training program as well!
Irondale Summer Rollerski:
Captains will be doing some rollerskiing this summer. They will be meeting on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30-11am
Lots of construction this summer @ Irondale - we have a storage container that you can leave some rollerski gear during the week. Strongly encourage skiers to take rollerskis home and get some rollerskiing in on your own!
Returning this summer - Log your summer rollerski hours and earn a T-SHIRT!!!
Remind - Texting information
Coach Torvi uses the Remind texting service to send lots of team information. Athletes and parents - please sign up to get the most current team information!
