We have a program for every season and ability.
Spring/summer mountain bike program (ages 7 and up)
NEW this spring, SNSC is starting a program for athletes who love to mountain bike and would like to put a focus on bike training over the spring/early summer leading up to Mountain Biking Nationals in July. This program will be metric based and designed to help athletes achieve their personal goals. This is designed to be an add-on program to our current summer line-up. If you are not currently a member of SNSC and are interested, contact Olof Hedberg (firstname.lastname@example.org)
SUMMER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (two levels) (AGES 7-13):
This program is a fun and fitness filled program focused on our younger athletes. We will run, roller ski, bike, hike and generally enjoy the summer outdoors. This program focuses on developing fitness in a fun environment. It is perfect for any athlete looking to further develop fitness -- even if you are not a Nordic skier in the winter. The program meets 3-4 days per week (including one day for local trail running and mountain bike races).
SUMMER COMP LEVEL 1 (AGES 14-15)*:
This program is designed for our new U16 level skiers (Ages 14-15). The program will include roller skiing, running, hiking, local mountain bike and trail running races and more. Summer Comp 1 will be the first step in acclimating to the higher training demands of the Comp Team. This program may also be a good fit for some older athletes -- if you are unsure, contact Olof to discuss. This program meets roughly 5 days per week.
SUMMER COMP LEVEL 2 (AGES 16 AND UP)*:
Advanced physical training for highly competitive athletes -- this program assumes that athletes have a strong training base and are ready to complete double session days/difficult interval blocks. Meets roughly 5-6 days per week (with some double session days). This program will focus on developing strength, VO2 max and max speed.
*Both Comp programs use individualized training plans and will include "on your own" training time.
