The CXC Regional Training Center at Northern Michigan University in Marquette (MI) is a summer program for current, past and developing college athletes from June 15th-August 12th. The program also provides living, studying and training options.
“This partnership with Northern Michigan University has allowed us to create a strong training group option, by utilizing the facilities and services on campus.” Said CXC Team Head Coach, Andy Keller. This partnership also allows athletes an opportunity to use some of the best terrain and trails offered in the Midwest.”
Marquette features miles of exciting single track running as well as smooth bike paths and roads, that roll through the countryside for amazing roller skiing directly from the NMU campus.
“We have a long history with skiing in the local community, the Training Site and the University.” Said Michael Kaurala, Operations Manager at the NMU Olympic Training Site. “This summer program is a great opportunity to build off of that and expose a wide range of skiers to what our community and trail networks have to offer.”
At the beginning of the summer, coaches will evaluate athletes’ current level of fitness and provide a comprehensive training plan, while accommodating for any training plan they may already have from their respective coaches.
The goal of this training group is to bring skiers from all different areas of the country to train with one another. The program will also provide each athlete with a clear and concise training plan that caters to the individual athlete in order to improve upon fitness, technique and strength.
