Summer Program 2018

 

Cross Country Summer Program:

Edmonton Nordic Ski Club provides Summer Dryland Training Programs to meet the development needs of athletes from 13+ to Adult.  Both Biathlon and Cross Country skiers are encouraged to participate. We offer a full program for those who are interested in year round training as a group up to 4 days a week. Participants can enrol in each of these separately or as a “package”.

The programs run from the beginning of May until the end of August.

The General Summer Dryland Summer Training introduces younger athletes to other modes of fitness to maintain and increase strength and endurance without being ski specific. As the athletes get older and they move towards specific performance goals, then the SKI Specific Training program offers more ski specific focus with emphasis on strength training and technique.

For adults who want to improve their roller skiing the ADULT Roller Skiing program would be a good fit Technique while on roller skis will be the focus.

Head Coach Ulf Kleppe will lead all programs.

  • YD – 13 – 15 yrs.
  • YR – 16 – 19 yrs.
  • Adults – 19+ yrs.

Assistant coaches will be hired if numbers warrant. If you have any further questions about the program, such as determining what program to register in or equipment requirements, please contact coach Ulf at kleppeu@gmail.com.
