  • U8 Update 12.18.14
    Hello again U8 parents!! We had a great day on Saturday. We all skied together for most of the day because we had a smaller group. We spent a lot of time free skiing – a lot of the kids are still getting used to being on snow for such a long period of time. They were all so worn out by the end of the day! We worked some more on athletic stance, side slipping, and parallel turns. Eric and I have already seen improvement in a lot of the kids, after only a couple of trainings!! Make sure you give your kids a pat on the back and remind them how awesome they are doing; skiing is hard work and they are killing it!  This Saturday will be similar; we will continue to work on athletic stance and parallel turns. Make sure you look at the weather report Continue Reading...

  • YSL Update 12.16.2014
    YSL Parents, We had a great day on snow this past Saturday. We worked on fore and aft balance with your athletes. After lunch, Drew and Jason set up a drill on Sunshine called pole jumpers. We set up bamboo on the snow, and the goal was to jump evenly with both feet and land balanced equally on both feet. The course was about 50 yards long, and we had the kids run the course 3 times, hiking to the top after each run. Frequently during training, we will set up a course and ask the kids to hike a bit. This works great on cold days to keep the kids warm and it builds leg strength. All three YSL coaches met on Sunday and we have split up the athletes into training groups. Here is the breakdown: Coach Deborah: Coach Jason: Coach Drew: Blake Curran Cormac Hayden Emily Daniel Continue Reading...

  • 12.9.2014 YSL Update from the coaches
    Hello Everyone, What a great start to the season!!! The only thing that could have made last Saturday a better day would have been more snow. Let’s hope it’s coming soon!!! We spent the day working on Athletic Stance and Balance. We introduced a number of different drills and everyone worked really hard. All the athletes gave it 110% and I didn’t witness any one not having a fun time. Molly Greens provided lunch for the team and the pizza was wonderful! If you get a chance please stop in and give them a big Thank You! This coming Saturday Deborah will be attending a USSA Coaching Clinic so Jason and Drew will be working with the group. There are a few suggestions we would like to make for this coming Saturday: 1. We are working very hard and we wold like you to send your athlete up with a Continue Reading...
