JDL

12-14

The day started out icy with some beautiful views of the trees and great snow conditions. Coaching staff had a training course set up for the JDL 12-14 to practice edging and turns. Overall, a good day of training with their race coming up this weekend.

U10

The U10 athletes travelled to Mansfield for their first official race of the season. Everyone had a great time and they got some great racing experience under their belts to prepare for this weekends race at Snow Valley.  This was the first real race for most of the athletes.  They also had a good weekend training at Glen Eden.

U12

It was a full training weekend for the U12 team.  Racers spent two full training days at Glen Eden and worked on their skill development.  Our next race is this Saturday at Caledon and the racers are looking forward to putting their practice into action.  Good luck team!
