We have a program for every season and ability.
SUMMER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (AGES 7-13):
This program is a fun and fitness filled program focused on our younger athletes. We will run, roller ski, bike, hike and generally enjoy the summer outdoors. This program focuses on developing fitness in a fun environment. It is perfect for any athlete looking to further develop fitness -- even if you are not a Nordic skier in the winter. The program meets 3 days per week (including one day for local trail running and mountain bike races).
SUMMER COMP LEVEL 1 (AGES 14-15)*:
This program is designed for our new U16 level skiers (Ages 14-15). The program will include roller skiing, running, hiking, local mountain bike and trail running races and more. Summer Comp 1 will be the first step in acclimating to the higher training demands of the Comp Team. This program may also be a good fit for some older athletes -- if you are unsure, contact Olof to discuss. This program meets roughly 5 days per week.
SUMMER COMP LEVEL 2 (AGES 16 AND UP)*:
Advanced physical training for highly competitive athletes -- this program assumes that athletes have a strong training base and are ready to complete double session days/difficult interval blocks. Meets roughly 5-6 days per week (with some double session days). This program will focus on developing strength, VO2 max and max speed.
*Both Comp programs use individualized training plans and will include "on your own" training time.
