  • YSL Race Review 2/21/15 Coach Deb
    Hi YSL Parents, Thank you for your flexibility with changing plans for the Sundance race. The lack of snow proved to be a challenge for the resort as well as for our athletes. We are so snow-spoiled in Utah. Those snow conditions were more typical for racing than what the Wasatch normally provides. There were many opportunities for growth from the Sundance race, and I firmly believe that you do not need to be falling to be learning. One insight we gained from this slalom is that we could continue to work on speed control in short radius turns. As we practice short turns, your athletes tend to accelerate from turn to turn, with the turn radius becoming bigger and bigger, which makes it difficult to manage tighter slalom gates. Their speed control in short turns comes late, after the fall-line, rather than having early edge engagement near the top Continue Reading...

  • YSL update from Jason 2.16.2015
    Hello Everyone, Saturday was a great training day!!!  We focused on getting our hands up and driving forward while we are skiing.  In the afternoon we set a stubbie slalom course and trained for the upcoming YSL at Sundance.  Becky has sent a few emails with details on it and we will be meeting at Jackes Ticket window at 8:00.  It should be a fun race!  Please just respond and let me know your athlete will be racing this weekend. It also looks like YSL Champs will be at Brian Head this year!  They have held YSL Champs in the past and always do a great job.  We used to look forward to this race all year long.  Look for more info from Becky and I hope everyone can attend. Thanks, Coach Jason...

  • YSL Review 2/14/15 Coach Deb
    Hello YSL parents, Saturday was a very fun and very productive practice. Hopefully, your kids were not too much to handle afterwords, having earned a lot of Valentine candy prizes throughout the day. With the team’s first slalom race coming up this weekend, we have turned our focus to short radius turns. Shorter turns require using more range of motion and more intense application of those movements than bigger turns, where we can rely more on the sidecut of the ski to make it turn. Through drills and turning contests, we worked on our range of rotation – twisting the lower body against the upper body as well as steering our feet more actively. We also worked on increasing our range of flexion/extension movements. Some of your athletes flex/extend their ankles, knees, and hips in an up and down manner, crossing the center of mass (hips) OVER the skis in Continue Reading...

  • YSL Race Review 2/7/15
    Hi Parents, The first Don Gale Memorial was a huge success! Most important was that it was a great day to celebrate Don’s life, and that his son Liam was able to stand proud on the podium. My entire group made me so proud, as they all used their training and previous race experience to show some real improvement in this race. Congratulations to our group’s medal winners, Christopher who took 2nd and Aurora who took 7th, both in U8, and Talia who took 10th in U10. Blake was only 1.15 seconds from a medal, and Hayden was only 1.38 out from a medal as well. Syri will need to shave 3.38 seconds, Molly 3.52 seconds, and Anna 2.66 seconds in U12. With hard work, it can be done! These are impressive results for our team! If you follow alpine racing, you will find in updates from the world’s best Continue Reading...
