CoEd Varsity Nordic Skiing
Sunday & Monday - it is your choice what day you want to take off, but do take either day off and rest. The other day you should ski continuously for an hour at a slow and easy pace.
Tuesday Jan 22 - 12:30 bus to Pineland for a SKATE practice. We will wax skate skis after practice for the Wednesday race.
Wednesday Jan 23 - 2:00 bus to Pineland for a WMC 5k, wave start skate race. 3:30 boys start and shortly after girls will start.
Thursday Jan 24 - 12:30 bus to Pineland for a CLASSIC practice. If you have race and practice skis you will wax your race skis after practice and practice on your other skis Friday.
Friday Jan 25 - 12:30 bus to Pineland for CLASSIC practice. We will finish waxing classic skis for Saturday's classic race.
Saturday Jan 26 - 7:30 bus to Black Mt, Rumford for the Sassi Memorial classic race. 11:00 boys start. This is a major race where most school we ski against at States will be there.
The New Uniforms are in and look great. Please see me or Elysha this week if you did not get your uniform. We will have to order a couple more to make sure we have the right sizes for everyone.
Each skier is responsible for their uniform. At the end of the season you are responsible for returning the same number you were given.
PLEASE follow these care instructions to care for your uniform and they will last longer.
Machine wash cold
Do not use fabric softeners
Be ready to wear your new uniform Dec 28, the first race of the season in Fort Kent.
For anyone not attending the Holiday camp, the first race is Jan 2 at Pineland.
Looking forward to the first race when we can show off the new style and show everyone what you have accomplished with your training.
The school is using a new communication platform for all sports. To make life easier for all athletes and parents the Nordic ski team will start to use the same website for communication between coaches and team.
Each parent and student need to sign up so you will receive email and/or text as we communicate changes and important information throughout the season.
I will not use the Freeport Nordic blog anymore, but will focus all communication through the school website, or text messages if there is a last minute change.
I can also add photos so please send me photos throughout the season to add to the Nordic page.
Click on the following link to sign-up if you have not already done that for another sport
Once you are on the site, click on Winter, then Nordic and finally COED Varsity
The full calendar is currently on the site. There are a couple Saturday’s that are still open and we will add practice locations as the season progresses.
Saturday practices in December will change from Pineland to a location with snow until Pineland is open. I hope to find a place closer this week so it doesn’t take the full day. We will let everyone know as soon as we make a decision.
Thanks to all skiers for a great day last Saturday. ??
Bring your running shoes and poles to run with this week. See you Tuesday.
