MSRC Cape Split Hike – Sept 4th

Hey Team,

Excited to see some of you tomorrow for the hike to Cape Split! I have re-posted the details below for your reference. Remember, super is a potluck! Also, if parents don’t want to stick around for the hike, remember drop-off and pickup are not at the same location. Based on the signed up attendance, 2 vehicles should have enough room to shuttle everyone.

IF YOUR POTLUCK FOOD IS PERISHABLE – it might be a good idea to get it in the fridge in the AM, or bring it later if you are coming back. If this apples to you, shoot me a message, and I will arrange to have you drop it off at 214 Collins Road before the hike.

See you tomorrow!

Summer Dryland & Team Activities U14, U16, U18, U21

Hey Everyone,

Hope the off-season has been going well. Two topics to think about. Dryland, and fun team activities in the summer.

***** Dryland***********************************************************

For staying in shape during the summer, one of the best starting points I found when I was racing, was to get involved in a summer sport that had a high scheduled commitment and exertion level. For me, it was swimming competitively twice a day, and because I don’t float, it was a great workout to try and stay atop the water. I encourage all the athletes to get involved in sports outside of skiing during the off season, as this will really help with fitness, and general athletic ability.

However, there is also a roll for sport specific off-season training. For this, I have been working with some of the WSRC coaches to try and put togeather a scheduled training program for NS athletes. I figured it would be a great way to promote friendships that can be carried into the winter. This is what we have come up with.

– Trainer/Facilitator/Athletic Therapist: Kate MacDonald-Ferris
– Times: (June/July/August – 1 nights a week Wed 7 to 9)(Sept/Oct/Nov – Two nights a week TBD)
– Total number of sessions 38
– Venue: MSVU Athletic Complex
– Cost: $420 (420/38 = $11.05 Per session)

We need a minimum of 12 athletes between the 2 clubs to make this work. Please reply to h@rdy.email if you are interested. If the dates do not work, but you are interested, let me know!

NOTE: This does not remove our normal scheduled Fall dryland. It will take place as usual.

Finally, I wanted to share one of my favorite articles that gives an example of simple but effective exercises that can be done at home with very low financial investment. These exercises require only simple equipment that you can find around your house, and they work large groups of muscles (appose to single muscles). The value in this is that they can be done conveniently, and promote well rounded strength and balance.

***** Summer Activities *************************************************

For summer activities, I would love to get the team together for athletic-minded sessions, but not formally structured as a “workout”. I plan to start scheduling these shortly once the warm days become more consistent. However, I would love your suggestions of what else you would like to do! I have put together a short list below of things I have been thinking. Some of them are contingent on availability, but should give an idea of where I am headed with the idea.

Please email your suggestions to h@rdy.email

– Rock climbing
– Sailing
– On-Tree
– Mountain Bike Adventure
