Post date: Dec 29, 2016 10:15:13 PM

Folks: Solid turnout for this weeks training sessions: 17 athletes per night. Thanks to all who attended. We got in some good work.

LOOKING FORWARD TO MONDAY NIGHT, JAN. 2, 2017, 5:30 p.m. for the first evening training session of our 6-week training block.

Mandatory pole plants by the JP event. Here is an article to read, re-read and meditate upon.

Without a consistent pole plant, we are wasting our time.

By-the-way, the drills we do on the hill make our children smarter! Check out this article: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/children-who-skiing-better-school-andrej-miklavc. Our children are better students if they lead an active, outdoor, life, that includes specific learning tasks (like ski drills eg: pole plant).

So, the assignment over the weekend; 1) Get on snow; 2) Practice Pole Plant; 3) Read the article by Racer Ex and be prepared to discuss on Monday night; 4) Watch Mikaela Shiffrin’s slalom runs today from Semmering Austria and check out her pole plant (should be available on You tube by the end of the weekend).

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Coach Allan.
