Freestyle Comp 1/7-1/8

Friday, January 6, 2017

Hi Freestyle Family,

 

Our holiday week training was a huge success.  We were able to get a boatload of runs in, a good day of pow skiing and we rocked one of the best practice jumps that I’ve seen in years at Mount Snow.  A lot of athletes were able to try new tricks and move up the progression chart.  The jump is currently on skiers right of lower Inferno, if it is still in good shape, we’ll jump it again.  I encourage parents to swing on through to see us jump!

 

Upcoming competitions:  We have a few upcoming competitions.  Please see below for the next two weekends and at the bottom of this email is our full schedule.  I apologize for the delay in getting it finalized.

 

This weekend 1/7 & 1/8: 

 

-          “A” Mogul Team is at Bristol with PM

-          All others are at Mount Snow

 

Next weekend 1/14, 1/15 & 1/16:

 

-          The Freeride Team has a USASA Rail Jam at Stratton

-          We have training on MLK day, 1/16

 

Registering for events:  Please remember to register for your athlete’s events.  For our USSA Mogul athletes, you register by going to www.easternfreestyle.org.  For our Freeride team, we are solely competing in the USASA Southern Vermont Series’ Rail Jams and Slopestyle events.  To register for these events, please go to www.usasa.org/index.php/regions/new-england/southern-vermont.

 

Sweatshirt Order:  Last call for Sweatshirts!! Colleen Heikka has created an order form you can find here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14ie2Ljwa4NBy3AFbfRkOZz1Z8FiCHN3CiP5vK53VsQM/edit?usp=sharing<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14ie2Ljwa4NBy3AFbfRkOZz1Z8FiCHN3CiP5vK53VsQM/edit?usp=sharing>

 

New parents:  I will email you separately to further explain our competitions, registration and the overall game plan for new athletes.

 

Shin Bang:  Since we skied for 6+ days in a row, many athletes will have sore shins.  There are several causes of shin bang with the most common cause is landing jumps in the backseat.  Since we jumped a bunch, I’m sure there were plenty of backseat moments from everyone.  In the end the best thing is just to ice the shins during the week and we’ll work on landing jumps on our toes to not make it worse.

 

The full competition schedule:  This will also be posted in the training center near the coaches’ locker on the ground floor.  If anything is updated, I will send out an updated schedule.  Some email clients have wonky formatting, so if the schedule below is un-readable, please see the attached word document.
