Congratulations to you all for trying out with the Alberta Winter Games!! Those of you in "fill" spots- we will hopefully hear in a few weeks if we are granted any extra spots- keep your fingers and skis crossed for this!! :D
Those attending Red Deer- Westerns/Arctic Winter Games Tryouts
Registration is cheaper until the 12 of January (technically this is called regular registration; late registration is until the 16th of January). After which, it becomes more expensive- so click here and register- type in Westerns and it will come up. Coaches please register also. If you're unsure if your athlete has a team for the relay but you want them to race- please register them and if we don't have a team from Wapiti they will be placed on another team.
RBC Training Grounds- Is returning to GP this time with Cross Country Skiing in mind among other sports NOT highlighted in last year's event. IF you are interested- please see this website- and register. They have pre-trainigng available as well, it's another amazing opportunity to be exposed to other coaching, leadership and events! The actual event itself is set for January 27 at the Crosslink Centre. I really encourage athletes 14+ older to give this a shot!
Tuesday- Classic- Meet in the lodge before practice
- As I'm not allowed to coach on the track- you're on your own to train. $2 for the track
- I'll be around and will have a paper copy with me as well and I'll yell at you a few times. :)
- Start with a 15min running laps warmup; then(time yourself for this section) 4 zone 3 laps; 1 zone 4 lap; 2 zone 3 laps and 1 zone 1 lap. After this- I recommend doing 50 sit-ups; 50 pushups; 50 jumping jacks; 50 sit and reach abs; 50 super mans. Then check your time and repeat the above: 4 zone 3 laps; 1 zone 4 lap; 2 zone 3 laps and 1 zone 1 lap. Repeat the exercises… see if you can fit three of these sessions in! Then a 15 min zone 1 cool down run.
Saturday- Meet in the timing tower- Skate technique 10-12. IF YOU WANT A HOTDOG- bring money and let me know so that they can put more on for us!!
POSTPONED until Feb 11.
