Winter is here, we hope you have been getting on the snow! Here is whats happening with the club.
Tuesday Night Sprints
Tuesday Night Sprints return January 9th. These events are a great opportunity to get a taste of racing in a low key environment. Whether you are a beginner, or a hot shot racer, we encourage you to come out and join the crew.
These races have become the weekly training ground for our high school athletes. For Masters skiers these events are a great speed workout to prepare for Michigan Cup or Masters Worlds. The events cost $5 and all proceds will go back in to the event for food and fun prizes. The format for the first event will be an interval start with a 4K distance. The format for each week will be announced at the sprint event the week before.
WeSki Is Coming
The Vasa Ski Club has been busy planning the WeSki events. The club relies of the generosity of volunteer coaches to provide ski instruction for the participants of WeSki and that’s where you come in! We have a record number of participants signed up this year and that means we need coaches.
2018 WeSki Program dates are January 14, 21 & 28 from 3:00–5:00 pm at Timber Ridge Resort. All three sessions are set up the same with group lessons, both skate and classic, at age and skill appropriate levels, are provided from 3:00-4:00 pm, followed by a light meal to facilitate whole family participation. Costs remain low at $48/family or $30/individual. Rental equipment is available at Timber Ridge. For additional information, here is the link to the program flyers located on the VSC website http://www.vasaskiclub.org/we-ski-2015 www.vasaskiclub.org/we-ski-2015
To give our WeSki participants a great experience on skis we need 20+ instructors. Please contact us at email@example.com if you can instruct this season. We’d love your help for all three sessions but understand if you can only attend one or two. Your time is greatly appreciated!
All coaches, especially new coaches are encouraged to attend a Coaches' Clinic on Saturday, January 6th from 3:30 - 5:00 PM at Timber Ridge. This event is held in conjunction with the 2 day Midwest Nordic Rendezvous event. Nationally renowned PSIA Nordic Coach Emily Lovett will lead the session. This is a great opportunity for new and seasoned coaches to learn from a pro. Follow this link for more information: http://www.vasaskiclub.org/midwest-nordic-rendezvoux-in-tc-ja
