XC Chelsea Masters Dryland and Coached Cross Country Skiing
By:  XC Chelsea Masters   (2010/09/03)


The XC Chelsea Masters is a club for both competitive and recreational masters cross-country skiers (i.e., age 30, give or take a few years, and up) run by local coaches in Chelsea and Ottawa. It offers a structured training program that is designed to bring masters skiers to a fitness level and technical ability that will allow them to improve their performance in ski races of short and long distances, ski loppets, touring events and recreational skiing. Many masters join in order to get in shape for the Gatineau Loppet or the Canadian Ski Marathon. Others simply want to get in shape for the ski season and learn to be better skiers.

Dryland training for the upcoming ski season starts soon, on Tues. Sept. 21, 2010 at Mooney's Bay in Ottawa. If you interested in training with Natalya Kuziak's team of coaches again this year, or for the first time, please go to the new web site for all sorts of information on the new XC Chelsea Masters club. On the web site you will find a description of the overall program, activities, training schedule, fees and how to register, the coaches, and who to contact for information.
