2020-2021 Irondale Nordic Skiing
Summer Training Information:
The Covid-19 pandemic had really changed the landscape of training! Even in the midst of the pandemic - several training groups are posting training suggestions! Lots of information is being posted on skinnyski.com. Make sure to check it out!
I help coach the Vakava Jr program through Finn Sisu, but there are other options out there. Vakava Jr normally meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings - hopefully in person training will be available sometime this summer! FinnSisu has an interest sign-up - encourage you to check it out!
Some of our best skiers have trained with this group and I have had own kids (Hanna and Bjorn) do the training program as well!
Irondale Summer Rollerski:
There are no group workouts scheduled yet - once conditions allow group meetings, I will post on the website and send out a remind notifying everyone. In the mean time, check out some gear and go for workouts on your own!
In a normal summer - Captains would be leading rollerski workouts. They would be meeting on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30-11am - meeting at the ski room (new building in very back of Irondale)!
Still lots of construction this summer @ Irondale - we have access to our ski room 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!!!
Photo Link -We will be adding photo's from throughout the season to a Google Photo page! Thanks to the parents that are contributing photo's!
Practice is very weather dependant and can change quickly, forcing a change in the workout plan!
Please be prepared to ski/run/rollerski/workout inside every day!
Be prepared with hat, gloves and light layers every day!
Parent Social - Friday, Dec 6th 7-9pm hosted by the Stolen Family!
Please bring an appetizer or desert to share
