XC Chelsea Masters Summer Roller Skiing
By: XC Chelsea Masters (2016/06/02)
Dear Ottawa/Outaouais Ski Clubs,
XC Chelsea Masters is offering a summer roller ski program for Masters. The program is open to all. We are inviting you to spread the word within your club, as some of your members may be interested in joining in. We'd like to encourage more masters to roller ski all year to work on ski skills, technique, balance, agility, as well as strength and aerobic fitness.
Dates and Time: May 31- July 5 (6 week program), 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Cost: $120.00 + online reg fee and an XCCM club membership ($35) for insurance purposes.
Coach: Dan Mallett
Equipment required: Classic and skating rollerskis. ski boots, poles for each style, helmet (Note that you may still participate even if you have just one style. The club has a number of loaner skis as well)
Minimum of 6 participants. Maximum of 12. Refunds will be provided if the minimum number is not reached.
The program will be an opportunity to work on improving technique for both classic and skate skiing. At least two of the six sessions will include video analysis. The sessions will also include agility exercises (See examples at https://vimeo.com/135094723) and other exciting and fun challenges. Our last session will end with a ski tour along an interesting, local cycling path to a restaurant with a patio.
For those interested, simply go to XCCM web site for more info or to the Registration page.
Thanks for sharing with your members. Note that the first session starts May 31, but we can prorate the program for later starters.
Have a great summer.
