u12 and U10 Weekend Update 1/6 and 1/7 + Skills Info

Hello U12 and U10 Families,
Happy New Year!  Hope 2018 is treating you all well!
First piece of business – Sunday’s U12 Skills Day and Dual Race at Pico has been postponed due to some snowmaking issues from the extreme cold that have impacted their ability to open their race trail.  I will let you know ASAP once I know a reschedule date!
Training info for this weekend (should we decide to alter training at all due to weather, I will let you know):
Saturday 1/6: Both U10 and U12s will be on SL skis for skills training, dual panel SL, and stubby SL work.  Athletes can wear shin guards if they have them (not necessary if they don’t).
Sunday 1/7: Both U10 and U12s will be on GS skis for some drill course work and GS training courses.
Looking ahead: The plan is for GS both days next weekend for both U10 and U12s but this could change depending on reschedule date for the U12 skills day.
MARIO THE MAGICIAN: This Saturday 1/6 is the Mario the Magician show hosted by OMARA!!  Don’t miss your chance to see this great show.  It is geared towards children, but parents will enjoy as well!  Click HERE to get your tickets!
Skills Quest:
Below are links to information (including video) of each of the four Phase 2 skills that are the focus of U12 training when we are training “Skills”.  U10s will be doing Phase 1 skills at their skills day, but in training will be challenged by the skills below as well.  I have also included the Phase 1 skills below.  Please take a look at these links, but more importantly show your athletes the video.  Many have seen these already with coaches, but more reinforcement at home (or on the car ride up :)!) is great too!  Click on the skill titles for the links!
Phase 2:

Outside Ski Turns

Pole Jumpers

Phase 1:
Race Registration Info: As I have mentioned a few times before, new this year all registration is done through https://adminskiracing.com/. Log in (or create a log-in if you don’t already have one – I think this is the same as you use to pay for VARA) and then filter races by VARA to see all races in Vermont (https://adminskiracing.com/racereg/event_listing/viewevents).  Use the schedule in the U12.10 101 document to find the races for which you need to register your child.  Each week we have a race I will send reminders, but if you want to get going with registering, go ahead.
Just a reminder, you can find this and every email I send on the OMARA blog – go2omara.com.  U12/10 announcements are at this link specifically: http://go2omara.com/category/announcements/u10u12-announcements/ Also check out the U12/10 FAQs: http://go2omara.com/alpine-racing/u10u12/devo-program-faqs/ Also you can access the U10 and U12 training and racing schedule (with very basic info) here: https://go2omara.com/alpine-racing/schedules/u10u12-weekend-training-racing/
And please refer to U12.10 101 2017.18 Edition for race schedule and other info!
