Here is your latest CXC update for Coaches and Clubs.
1. US Ski & Snowboard has updated their Training System Matrix. Please check this link to stay up to date with their revisions: http://ussa.org/ussa/training-systems-overview (look for the “USSA Training System Matrix” box and click on “Cross Country”)
2. The 2017 CXC/Wayne Fish Coaches Certification and Conference is coming together quite nicely. We are pleased to announce Ivan Babikov as our key presenter. Ivan was a World Cup Racing veteran with many top 10 performances for his adopted homeland of Canada. Since retiring from World Cup Racing he has taken over as the Canadian National Ski Team’s Head Coach and his charges have continued their momentum on the world stage with many top results last year, including Alex Harvey’s Gold Medal in the 50K at the Lahti World Championships. Join us to hear Ivan’s perspectives on training and technique.
We are also pleased to announce we will be adding an officials educational component to the weekend.
Save the date on your calendar now – October 20-22, 2017: http://cxcskiing.org/pages/events/cxc-coaches-conference.html
3. Coming this Fall we will supplement our Wayne Fish Coaches Education Conference with Shorter Coaches Clinics in a few spots throughout the region. If you are interested in hosting one of these “local” clinics at your facility, please reach out and let us know when you may have facility availability. We would like to spread about a half dozen of these out and have one reasonably close to each of our denser skiing areas as well as some of our more remote while still centrally located spots. We would like to hear of your interest in attending as well.
Enjoy these last few weeks of summer before the various school years start!!!
