Fall Program 2018 (MORE INFO TO COME!)

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 based on costs of coaching, transportation, and program development, and are made to be as reasonable as possible while allowing sustainable programming. Unsure of what group is right for you? Contact Zach.

 
 

COMPETITIVE GROUP            
EXPERIENCED ATHLETES AGES 14-18

 

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.

  • Tue-Wed-Thu 4pm-6pm
  • Saturdays and Sundays 8am-2pm
  • Fee: $1,100 for the 8 weeks

DEVELOPMENT GROUP          EXPERIENCED ATHLETES AGES 12-14         NEW ATHLETES AGES 12-16

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.
