Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday. Too bad that the weather isn’t cooperating for more than a few days at a time. Needless to say, for those of you working this evening…please wear a rain jacket! I have attached the course CSCF Drill handbook and Course Setting info document for your use. Please refer to this document to aid you in prepping for your session night and your training session plans with your team. I will also post it under “docs to go”. cheers!

Watch this video of some of the K1 Boys at last weekend’s K1 individual race. Think about the Aim 2 Win document & video and yet again, this is another proof of what young kids are capable of:
NG & K1 coaches, when watching these boys ski; notice the biomechanics. That is some pretty good skiing there. They have an understanding of how to get down the hill the fastest no? I challenge you, yet again to think of some creative ways to get your racers to understand the basic principle of the sport: pressure on the downhill ski, moving the body ahead of the equipment, body inside the arc (separation) & pole plant. It’s a simple sport really… Remember, keep it simple with your kids (figure out the goal of your session, set something that will acheive your goal, coach by giving some cues (think of 3D coaching) and let your set do the work. If these K1 boys from Ontario can ski like that, why can’t our racers do the same?
