Weekly Update- Jan 23rd

Good afternoon everyone!

My apologies with the delay in getting this weekly update out! I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for week 3 of programs?! I have a few items to bring to your attention this week but first things first, here’s a rough outline of what this week has in stores for us:

Mon: Freestyle and snowboard development team

Tue: Adult Houseleague and Masters; we have a timing night on our schedule and we will go ahead with this plan for now. I would like to use the brower timing system and simply count this a timed training night. We will set GS Full gates on race hill (outside of the tower). Depending on conditions, we can see about setting a second course for training, but with today’s rain, I am worried about snow depth. Tuesday night certifying folks & apprentices… please meet Kent for 7pm unless you are running the session, then meet him for 6:30pm in clubhouse.

Wed: Tyler is in charge of the set as it is his night to run a session- he will be setting GS panels on OLD T-Bar Lane. Please set 2 nets for the finish area. If snow allows, I would also like to set another GS course on Boomerang since all teams are racing GS this weekend.

Thur: Snowboard race team will train. Martin will be setting for the K1s as it is his night to set, he will be setting a pannelled SL course down our normal race lane. We will also be setting a FUll gate SL course for the K1 groups who are training this so do prepare your groups for full SL gear if applicable.

Fri: extra training. Stubbie SL and full gate SL training. Please push with K1 parents who need to get their kids feeling more comfortable with training full gate SL courses.

Sat: all teams are away. JHL will be spirit day. an email to come from me

Sun: all ski teams away. Snowboard race team away. Freestyle at home.

A few other details:

  • A reminder that as an employee, if you are unsure about something relating to your employment or have a question, please inquire with your evening supervisor or myself. I ask that all coaches take responsibility for their own employment. Although as supervisors, we want to provide great customer service, we will no longer be answering about coaching and employment questions through the employee’s parents.
  • Hours are due this week. Please make sure to complete hours for the pay period ending this week.
  • Coaching conflicts: I know some of you will have conflicts for the Feb 4th and 11th weekend, please refer back to the contact list I sent you at the beginning of the season and contact coaches who are NOT normally coaching on these days to fill in for you. A few suggestions: Scott, Mike B, Danielle, Heidi, Meghan, etc….and any K2 and J coaches who normally would be free on a Sat.
  • Great job making Smurf Day fun folks! thanks for keeping in with the smurf spirit!
  • All stars- as some of you may know already; We will be hosting All stars this season again and will need all hands on deck. Please email me or let me know in person if you are available on Feb 5th and can come out to help. I will be blogging about coaching arrangements and team training for this day once plans have been finalized.
  • Mid – season is upon us. Evals are due next week. I will be posting today or tomorrow more details around mid season racer evaluations.
  • Supervisors will also be completing coach evaluations this week and next and you will be asked to meet and sit down with a supervisor to go over your evaluation shortly.

As always, if you have any questions, please ask! Have  a good week everyone!

Weekly Update: Jan 9

Good afternoon coaches!

Hope everyone has had a good weekend and a great start to their week. I wanted to give you a all an update of what this week will look like. As you all know, Glen Eden is making all the efforst in the world to make snow at every opportunity that they get…based on snow availability- we will be training on one lane all week:

Monday- Jan 9–> Make sure you have submitted your hours online by end of day today. Highschool Racing Coaches- meet Emilie in the clubhouse at 6:30pm. Tonight we will be doing a ski off with the athletes and placing them in their appropriate groups- you will be free-skiing with your groups and working on ski improvement. No gates this week. Next week will be GS gates for them. There will also be a small freestyle group and the Snowboard development team in the clubhouse starting their training this evening!

Tuesday, Jan 10–> TNT night #1. Jeff will be coaching for Heidi, Tyler, Danielle, John, Rick and Will. Meet in the clubhouse for 6:30pm for a quick meeting. We will be setting a full gate GS in the outside of the tower and a stubbie SL (with lots of room) in the inside. Coaches that have signed up for the Tuesday night certifying session are to meet Kent in the clubhouse for 6:30pm.

Wednesday, Jan 11–> K2 and J teams will all be training SL. Jeff is heading up the session for this week. All coaches to meet Jeff in front of the clubhouse for 6:30pm with skis on.

Thursday, Jan 12–> NG & K1 guys- Brook will be running the session, meet Brook and Kent and I outside the clubhouse at 6:30pm with skis on. Snowboard Race Team kicks off their training this night also. Courses for the young skiers will be stubbie SL for K1’s and pannelled SL for NG’s.

Friday, Jan 13–> Friday Training for NG and K1, discipline is Super SL. I am still looking for another coach if someone is available, please contact me asap.

Saturday, Jan 14–> JHL #2. JHL coaches, please meet myself for your session at 8:30am in front of clubhouse. all teams that are at home will be training SL. All  league coaches and apprentices, please be on snow for 7:30am.

Sunday, Jan 15th–> Hosting SL for J White Team.- all league coaches on snow for 7:30am. All teams at home will be training SL in the afternoon. Thanks to Meghan and Chloe who expressed interest in helping out with the race- much appreciated!

Other business

As you all are probably aware, this week kicks off lessons for the snow school and this means that the hill will be a little busier, please use the start of the evening to remind your racers of some hill etiquette:

– making groups of 3 or 4 before lining up for the chairlift

-no horseplay in the lift lines

– in order to use the ski school line, your racers must be with a coach, no exceptions will be made for this. If you would like to have your racers cycle through fast, I encourage you to instruct them to make use of the single line.

Please also, think about where you are stopping on the hill and try your best to keep your group in one condensed line or cluster off to the side. Thank you to everyone for a great first weekend and looking forward to seeing you all on snow this week!

Week 7 update- sorry for it being late…

Hi Team,

Finally, I am able to send out this week’s update. So sorry folks for the delay; we moved this weekend and didn’t have internet access other than on my phone until last night. Plus I was burried in between boxes- so this morning back at work, I finally have a chance to send out the schedule for the week! Hope everyone is doing well. Again, this past weekend, we had some pretty amazing results! Congrats to all teams who continue to remain undefeated and to those who fought a great battle on the weekend as well! Great reults continue for MHRC and I look forward to see what Semi’s has in stores for us!

Without any further delay- this week’s schedule:

Tuesday- TNT night! we will be setting 2 GS courses-0ne on race hill & other on old t-bar lane

Wednesday- we will be setting on our race hill–> we will most likely be training Full gate SL-unless there is a change in the discipline for semis (which I hope to find out/confirm soon)- 2 FULL gate courses (one inside and other oustide of the tower)

Thursday- we will train Kombi for NG on OLD t-bar lane and ____ for the K1’s on race hill (depends on what AOS tells us semis will be..)

Friday- GS training away at Moonstone for NG and K1’s.

Saturday/Sunday is currently unknown until we hear about the semi/hosting schedule. JHL will train as usual on Saturday morning.

As soon as I hear from AOS, I will post the info for the upcoming weekend on the blog-so make sure that you check back often!

Have a good week all and stay away from all the rain that they are calling for!

Update Week #5

Hi Coaches! another great and successful weekend done- congrats to all the teams who did very well at their races! Another great weekend for MHRC racers and coaches- great job to all! Thanks to coaches who helped run (Rick and Ian) a great training session last Friday at Moonstone! 52 gates were brought up and they all made it in the ground- oh the joy of having a longer run to train on! Great day- thanks to athletes and coaches for helping in the day’s great success!

This week’s update, yes I know a little late… sorry about that- weekend got away from me!

Tonight- Appleby Racing – coaches are Chloe and Dylan

Tomorrow-Tuesday- ADULT TNT race #2. Set-up crew, please set FULL gate GS on race hill and full nets (for timing) and stubbie GS on boomerang for training in between timed runs). If coaches can be in the clubhouse (TNT coaches) for 6:30pm that would be great, we can organize registrations then.

Wednesday- Training will be SL and GS for racers. Set-up crew please set SL on race hill and GS on boomerang. The brower timing system works, let’s plan on having someone set-it up for boomerang. I will be inside meeting with race committee and all involved in the ALL star race on the weekend.

Thursday evening- Training will be GS and SL, please set-up SL FULL  gates and GS full gate on race hill, one course inside and the other outside of the tower.

Friday Training- is for J and K2 racers and has been changed to our home turf- we will be training GS in the morning and SL in the afternoon. Coaches will be Rick, Ian and maybe myself depending on numbers.

Sat- The only teams home will be DD’s and JHL- this will be our 1st JHL TIMED race, all coaches (including apprentices and JHL coaches) should be on snow for 8:30am to help set for the morning. DD’s will also be participating in the race- should be a good morning:)

Sunday- We are hosting all stars for J’s this day. coaches who are scheduled to help me out for the day: Heidi, Rick, Scott, Kent, Will. If anyone else is available, please send me an email as I am currently judging how much help we need. Coaches, please meet at the top of sidewinder for 6am (I know that means we have to hike… BUT we must set all safety net before the lift opens…) I’ll bring a breakfast treat for everyone:)

That’s all folks. So have another fantastic week and thanks again for doing a GREAT job! watch out for those 30 cm of snow we are supposed to get tonight! OH and to all you HS racing coaches, last week of training is next week so remember to meet coach Ian on snow for 6:30pm! cheers!

Friday Training- a.k.a. tomorrow’s plan!

Hi all,

I know in my beginning of the week blog post I specified that we would only be training SL on Friday at Moonstone- plan is SL in morning and GS in afternoon. That means that you will need both sets of skis and all gear. Please come with your chin guard and pole guards already set-up & plan on taking it off at lunch (unless you have 2 helmets!). For those attending, plan is:

meet at Base logde for 8:20am

Train from 9am-3pm

Hope to see many of you there as it should be a fantastic day of training!

Update, start of week 4

Hi everyone

Congrats again on a job well done to all the MHRC teams this weekend- we again achieved some pretty amazing results! Hats off to coaches and athletes for doing such a great job! Keep it up guys. So we are hitting the mid point- this is usually when we start getting tired and start “slacking off” so let’s keep up the momentum. Please continue to email your coordinators/managers your start list way ahead of time (i.e. latest on Monday evening of the week before) to spare them the energy and effort of going after you. Continue to keep your teams informed of what equipment to bring for training during the week as well as details for the weekend’s race. A reminder, that evals are due this week, they MUST be looked at by your team leader before being handed out (NG- Kent, K1- Brook, K2-Ian and J- Rick). If you need help with these, look at my previous post for more info.

Here’s this week’s udpate:

Monday night (tonight)- Appleby College Training (Ian, Scott & Connor?)- Full SL course from 5-7pm on race hill. Coaches interested in some extra training, please meet me on snow for 7pm at the top of the race course for re-set and please stick around until the end to help with teardown.

Tuesday night- TNT- Full gate SL on old T-Bar Lane and GS full gate on Race hill, set-up crew- Ian, Kyle and Scott?

Wednesday night- K2/J Training- SL and GS full course on race hill

Thursday night- K1/NG Training- 2 hills- GS on Boomerang (FULL Gate) & PAN SL and stubbie SL on race hill (2 HILLS)- set-up crew Chloe, Tyler + Scott?

Friday– away training- SL for K2/J. If you are registered please meet at the chalet at the base of Moonstone for 8:30am. we need to arrange lift tickets, etc… Training will wrap-up around 3pm. Coaches are myself, Rick and Ian.

Saturday- the only groups home is JHL- coaches and apprentices meet Will and I at the gate cabana for 8:30am for set-up. We will also set full gate SL for JHL coaches and apprentices interested in some extra gate training:)

Sunday– White team is home and we are hosting a K2 GS for group 7- if you are available and would like to come and volunteer yourself to gate keep that day, we would really appreciate it as we are low on helpers with all other teams away racing.

That’s all folks and to wrap-up; I leave you with Developing GS turn technique using S Turns that Rick sent us, enjoy.  Oh and a gentle reminder that I will be entering payroll tomorrow evening so please make sure it is all in for the past 2 weeks of pay! thanks!

Friday Training

Please encourage your kids to sign-up for their league specific Friday Trainings. As you know, it is great additional training, racers get good one-on-one attention PLus don’t you think it is wayyy better than going to school on a Friday! HAHA

We have a few away Friday training dates coming up- so check the schedule in docs to go and encourage your racers to take advantage of this great opportunity!

Good luck to all teams racing this weekend!
