U14 Schedule 1/24-1/26

Finally time to race! Looks like both the SL at Quechee and the GS at Killington will happen this weekend. We have been extremely fortunate to have had such incredible training opportunities thus far this winter. Most programs have yet to have much if any GS training and very little SL. Let’s approach this weekend with a positive and confident attitude and show our team spirit. I’ve attached a fact sheet for each of the races this weekend. Additionally, I am happy to announce that Okemo will host the make up race for the cancelled Middlebury SL. We will host this SL on February 9th.

Friday 1/24 SL Full gear and suits
Saturday 1/25 SL at Quechee
Sunday 1/26 GS at Killington

If you plan on training 1/24 and have not already signed up for Friday training, please contact Eric Evans and me.

Information sheets for both the Quechee and Killington races are below, however I have also emailed them to you.
