Superiorland Ski Club Summer Training Program Slated To Begin Soon

The program will start with a kickoff meeting and first session at the MSHS Track on Tuesday, June 20, 9:00am.  Parents are welcome to attend the first meeting to hear information and meet the coaches.  We are very happy to announce that the head coach for the program will be NMU assistant ski team coach Shane McDowell.  Shane has a fantastic background in cross country skiing and training both juniors in training camps he ran in Maine as well as working with elite college athletes.

Bring appropriate workout clothes, a watch, and a water bottle to the first practice.

There is no on-line registration for this one so please complete and return the attached form.  Checks should be made out to Superiorland Ski Club and returned by mail or to the first practice.  Invite your friends to join – even non-skiers will for sure get fitter with Shane’s workouts.  Coached workouts will be 3 days per week (between Tuesday – Friday) with a weekly email sent out on session locations.  Supplemental individualized training plans (workouts beyond the group sessions) will also be available to the athletes if interested.

Registration forms can be found here 2017 Summer Training Program SSC.
