Rollerski with XCOttawa!
By:  Team XCOttawa.ca   (2005/10/13)


Junior skiers (>13years) are invited to come rollerskiing with XCOttawa.ca athletes Thursday nights in October and November. We will meet at P8 shortly after 5pm, warm up and head to the parking lot halfway between P8 and P9 for 5:30pm. Once there we will do a few technique, balance and tactics drills. After that it will be easy skiing with a focus on improving technique and allowing the juniors to ask questions and learn a few tricks.

These sessions will include balance drills and technique drills but will not be very taxing. They will not be more tiring than an easy ski. We don't want to interfere with regular club training or individual athlete programs. Rather we want to help local juniors develop better technique by offering an extra oportunity to roller ski in a fun and social environment.

Equipment needed:

  • Skating or classic roller skis.
  • Sharp ski pole tips!

Other Requirements

Skiers must be registered with a local ski club (Nakkertok, Chelsea, Skinouk, etc..) or university. High school skiers must be accompanied by a teacher. Parents are welcome to watch the practices and participate.
