Fall Program 2018

Program Dates - September 3 to november 4 - 8 weeks

Fall is the best time to prepare for Winter. For those who have been putting in the hours over the Summer, Fall is when you can really build on the progress of the previous months. For those who have been involved in other activities, Fall offers a great opportunity to get your ski legs back up and running!

Our season consists of lots of great hikes into the mountains we live so close to, with biking, fun and challenging runs, and roller skiing. If we're lucky, our last few practices before Winter might even be on snow!

Momentum Groups

Our training groups are formed to bring together kids of similar ages and abilities, but
final placement is based on individual needs of the athletes and coaches' discretion.
Both groups will train in the same locations. Fees are made to be as reasonable as possible while allowing sustainable programming. Unsure of what group is right for you? Contact Zach.

We build base endurance and strength following a Periodized Training Schedule. Final placement depends on athletes' needs and coaches' discretion. In order to ensure skiers' goals and to follow a Long-Term Development plan appropriately, it is recommended that participants of this group attend all 8 weeks, and 80%+ attendance is advised. The Gear List is at the bottom of this page.

In this group, kids work on the fundamentals of athletic development, while having fun
outdoors. Activities include roller skiing, biking, running, hiking, and more! In order to get the most out of this program and to keep the general safety of participants, we strongly recommend that kids attend all practices. Those who don't attend enough practices may find themselves overwhelmed as the season progresses. The Gear List is at the bottom of this page.

Weekender Option

Can't make practice during the week? That's A-OK with the Weekender option! When you register as a Weekender you are signing up for only Saturday and Sunday Practices. You will be participating in Development Group practices. This option is great if you want to keep a pulse on Nordic Skiing until you can commit to the full Development Group schedule.

Sportlog

 

In order to give ourselves a better appreciation for the training we've done and an insight into that training, this year we will be making an effort to keep track of our activities by using a website called Sportlog.

We request that all of our Comp and Devo participants create their own training log using this website. We also request that all Comp and anyone aspiring for Comp share use the function which allows you to share your log with Zach. It's confidential, and it allows Zach to develop training plans that are better suited to individual athletes. Cost for this service is 8 Canadian Pesos per month (about $5 USD).

There are two groups: Momentum Northwest Comp, and Momentum Northwest Devo. Search for whichever group you're signed up for. Registration Code is: Klaebo's Hair
