U12 and U10 Training 2/13 – 2/21

Hello U12 and U10 Families,

This past weekend was another awesome one in the U12 and U10 world!  50 of our U10 and U12 athletes attended the Quechee SL camp on Friday and had a blast – they made new friends and got to ski on a wide variety of training courses to improve their SL skills!  The U12s went on to race SL at Quechee on Sunday and continued to show what Okemo racers are made of bringing home many medals and THE BOOT!

We have training only, no races, for both the U12s and U10s this weekend and next, as well as mid-week training during President’s week.  Each day will be according to our normal schedule. Please refer to the schedule below for training info.  The day off next week is subject to change due to weather, but for now we are planning on Wednesday.  Please note also that, especially for Valentine Campers, this is a long training block, so don’t hesitate to have your athlete take an extra day off or two if they need it.  Also, it is totally fine if you athlete has to miss training next week due to school or your work schedule.
Saturday 2/13: Skills Quest – SL skis.  ***Also don’t forget the OMS Winter Festival from 7-10 pm at Willie Dunn’s (new location this year)***
Sunday 2/14: SL
Monday 2/15: GS
Tuesday 2/16:  SL
Wednesday 2/17: DAY OFF
Thursday 2/18: SL
Friday 2/19: SL
Saturday 2/20: GS
Sunday 2/21: SL
From here through the end of the year on SL skis days, U12s will begin to have the opportunity to train some full gate SL to help the second years transition into U14s.  Therefore, if your child has a chin guard and pole guards, they can wear them.  If they do not, don’t worry we will always have stubby options available.  Shin guards can be worn by any athlete.  Please note chin guards should be removed when not training SL.
Hope to see you all at the OMS Winter Festival on Saturday at Willie Dunn’s!  It is our biggest fundraiser of the year and it would mean a lot to me to see you all there and have your support!  We have some really amazing silent auction items, including a Chubb Classic Pro-Am Golf package, a ski outing with Olympian Julia Ford, and a week at a beach house in beautiful St. Augustine Florida!
