Thanks to all who have hired out the skiers for yard work over the last month. They have been kept very busy and have been putting a lot of money in the Nationals trip account. If you still need yard work done, we are now booking into the second weekend in June. Contact Abbi firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to hire some hard working kids to do some work around your home.
Funding Support Acknowledgement
The Larch Hills Junior ski team would like to acknowledge Cross Country Canada and the Women’s Committee for their support in funding our head coach, Abbi May to attend the Learning to Compete On-snow level coaching course this past month in Whistler. Three Larch Hills coaches attended this 4 day long course where they learned advanced coaching skills including technique adaptations for speed and efficiency, race strategy and tactical skills and protocols for monitoring training and recovery. Athletes in the juvenile and older categories have already begun a new training season and the coaches are working to apply their newly acquired knowledge to this coming year’s program.

Please contact Abbi at email@example.com to arrange for a group of fit, strong and hardworking teens to help get your yard ready for spring. Thank you for your support!
