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: 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).
