Nordic Ski Parent Booster Meeting

Hi Nordic Parents!

There will be a meeting Monday night at 7 pm at my house for anyone interested in helping out the Nordic Booster board this year. Rather than worry about who holds what position on the board, I’m hoping we can just get a few things accomplished.

Items on the agenda include:

Cub Foods dates and coordination
Carb Dinner dates
Concessions – North and South
Snacks for meets (JV too)
Volunteer Spot coordinator
Anything else that I have forgotten

My address is 17059 Huntington Path, Lakeville, MN.

Hope to see you Monday. If you can’t make it but there’s an area you would be willing to help with, please let me know. Thanks!

practice every day this week- prepare to be outside!

Although we received a few inches of snow, it’s still too thin to strap on skis on the trails at Kenwood. However, we will still be training outside as much as possible for our cardio and ski-specific skills. Then, indoors for strength and plyometrics/ core exercises.  The temps will remain well below normal, which means dressing for the weather will be important!  THey are making snow at Hyland every night for the next 8-10 days, so our meet that is scheduled for 12/4 should be a go!
