U12 and U10 Training Begins December 6th!

Hello U12 and U10 Families,

Well, the weather forecast says that it will really begin to look like winter up here in VT by tomorrow.  About a foot of snow is forecast to fall tomorrow into Thanksgiving morning!  I hope that those of you who will be here over Thanksgiving get in plenty of great skiing.

Barring any odd weather, we will begin U12 and U10 training on Saturday, December 6th according to our normal daily schedule, meeting at 8:30 am at the top of the AB quad.  All athletes should be on SL skis both days (if they have both SL and GS – if they have a single pair, then that’s the ski!) – no need for rock skis unless you hear otherwise from me next week.

New parents – please check out the attachment  U12.10 101 2014.15 Edition for detailed info on daily training, schedules, and more.

***Friday training: Anyone who has signed their children up for Friday training (you must sign up for the “3 day” option with the Comp Center), training for Friday U10/12s will start on Friday, December 12th.  Those who have signed up through the Comp Center will receive separate communication on this each week.

Looking ahead:

Please remember that Saturday, December 6th is the OMARA Social and Informational Meeting in the Sitting Bull at 7 pm.

I hope you all received my invitation to join us at OMS from 7-9 pm on Saturday, December 13th for our annual Board of Director’s Open House.

OMS Holiday Hammer Camp.  The Annual OMS Holiday Hammer Camp, which this year is from December 15th-19th, is open to any interested second year (as in were in U10 or U12 last year) U12 or U10s.  This is a great opportunity for some extra training and a taste of ski academy life!  Please note that the camp is a very long day for younger athletes and it may not be the best idea for them.  I will be on the hill (hopefully!) with the kids and definitely at school, so if they are nervous at all, I will be around!  The camp will also be staffed by other U12/10 coaches, as well as OMS coaches.  Please note: THIS IS ONLY A DAY CAMP – no housing is provided.  To register your child please email me for the registration form (either electronic or printable version), payment info or a check, the health summary, and waiver (many of you will have already received this by email).  Please do so ASAP – the camp fills quickly.  Registration closes Tuesday, December 9th, or earlier if full.

If you are new, please check out my last post and the U12.10 101 document – lots of important info, so if you haven’t read that, please do so – lots of questions can be answered there.

See you all soon and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
