October 26 - November 1, 2015.

Senior Team:

The longer practices are great- thank you everyone for making concessions to staying that extra hour- it helps and we got a lot done today. A few things to note-

1. please discuss with your parents (if they're footing the bill for the hoodies) that they will cost about $65. This includes a sizing kit so that you can purchase a hoodie that fits you, or one size larger- with your nickname on it. They will be the polyester dark grey (charcoal) with red enhancements and red logo-ing on it. Names will be in either red or white and the wapiti logo will be in colour. Junior sizes are available in this hoodie vs a cotton version for a bit cheaper- which doesn't come in junior sizing.

2. start carting your shortest pair of poles around with you- even shorter than your classic pair, if you own such a thing. We will be using them- weather dependent.

3. This week is Hallowe'en and with it comes snow!! Next week we will also have the time change and with that there are a few changes. Training will continue with the schedule we have until the snow is ski-able. Once it is ski-able, I will inform you all- until then, please keep posted on the blog- as the schedule now requires some flexibility on behalf of families and athletes and potential location changes. This week times and places will stay the same. Dress weather appropriately please, but have your athlete in their runners still- wet shoes will occur- but warm socks help.


Tuesday- Lodge- bring poles

Thursday- Muskoseepi

Saturday- Roller skiing- if no snow on the ground/pavement is wet but not frozen; Running at the same spot if snow on ground and bring your short poles.


Junior Team

Great job to those of you who raced!! This week and next, the junior team will go back to it's larger size as people return from being away and completing other sports that they're involved with. Two athletes last Thursday was a little lonely- so we're looking forward to having the whole junior team back together. This week is Hallowe'en and with it comes snow!! Next week we will also have the time change and with that there are a few changes. Training will continue with the schedule we have until the snow is ski-able. Once it is ski-able, I will inform you all- until then, please keep posted on the blog- as the schedule now requires some flexibility on behalf of families and athletes and potential location changes. This week times and places will stay the same. Dress weather appropriately please, but have your athlete in their runners still- wet shoes will occur- but warm socks help.

*Please note- I still have 2 pairs of smaller boots for sale and two pairs of poles also that may fit some of your athletes- these poles and boots came in after all the sizing had been done- so please, if you're interested in sizing up your athlete- catch me at either Thursday or Sunday practice. *

Thursday- meet out front of the Muskoseepi Pavilion. The kids will be running for most of this workout- please ensure they have their water bottle and water bottle holder.

Sunday- meet out at the lodge- no sugar (Hallowe'en candy) before practice please- we've had athletes get sick in the past… it's not pretty. Have a great week!! :D
