2009 Youth Ski Prgram begins Jan 6th

I hope that everyone is enjoying the holidays. More snow is in the forecast this week, the conditions should be great for the start of the youth ski program on January 6th. As mentioned in the meeting, the sessions will run from at 3:30pm 5:00pm. Please have kids dropped off at 3:25 at the new building on the Tuttle Road entrance of Twin Brook (this is opposite of last year). We will be skating for to start off the season.

For the program to run smoothly, we will need 6-8 coaches per session. You don't need to have any experience to coach, enthusiasm is the main ingredient. If you're interested and have never skied, no problem. We've had great coaches in the past who have only used snow shoes. I'm going to have a simple coach clinic on Saturday, January 3rd, from 9:00-10:30am at Twin Brook. We will meet at the new red building, as mentioned above. We'll talk about some skate drills, safety, and general logistics. The session is designed for coaches only.

I'll send out updates weekly during the seasons. Feel free to email me with any questions. If you are interested in coaching, but cannot attend on Saturday, please let me know, I need to get a list started. Have a great rest of the week! Coaches, hopefully I'll see you Saturday and I'll see everyone else next Tuesday.
