In that order. 

 

 

Week #9 

Here we go!

Every. Thing. We. Have. Worked. For.

Section 7 Race – WEDNESDAY MARCH 3rd  at Giant’s Ridge

We are ready!

 

 

Last week's racing on our home /Section courses gave us an idea of what we can do for this week's Section race! 👍

We put in lots of extra effort to nail down all of those little mistakes,( that cost us some time on Tuesday), and us coaches are confident that this team is ready to

rock & roll come Wednesday! The teams are mentally & physically set to go!  Now make sure your ski equipment is in top racing form too! 

If you had any little issues regarding poles, (baskets, grips, length) skis (bindings) & boots (nothing broken), it better be taken care of before Tuesday. 

 

Our JV & JH finished up their season, with tremendous success also.  What was neat to hear, (from race volunteers) was how awesome these young teams 

looked on the race course!! Exciting stuff happening already for next season!  :) If you haven't returned your racing bib to Coach CJ yet, please do so asap.  

 

 

2021 SECTION TEAMS:

 

GIRLS: Lydia, Aubree, Bella, Liz, Kate, Mia, Maggie; Alternates: Wren & Hannah

For the Section Race:

- Skiers arrive at GR by 8:00 am. Bring your classic skis to the Wax Hut. Use your B skis & ski the Classic course with your team. Team jackets - everyone needs to wear one on this day.  

- The usual Team Pasta Dinner is not in the cards this year.  Parents, please fuel up our ski racers with your own Spaghetti Feed at home. 

- Only the Section teams will be in attendance. Due to Covid regualtions, we are allowed 9 boys & 9 girls to be on site.  With Covid precautions & protocol, there will be no mixing of our team with other teams. MASKS need to be in place while outside and in the stadium area, whether you are talking with coaches or your teammates.  Keep your buff up while in the start line, and only after you leave the gate, may you pull it down. 

- Spectators will be allowed and need to follow Covid protocols - mask & social distancing. 

- There will be a bus in the parking lot at the Lodge around 8:30 am.  This is our team camp for the day. ONLY our Section teams will be allowed to use this shelter. The bus will be departing GR at 1 pm, so remove all gear bags by this time. 

- The Wax Hut will be our wax headquarters for this day.  

- No Section T shirts will be sold this year.
