Coach's Corner -LVRC ASSIGNMENTS
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!
