Adult Fall Program Thursday Night
The Minneapolis Ski Club will be offering a fall dry land ski program on Thursday evenings from 9/7 to 11/9th. Sessions will involve dry land technique for both skate and classic with strength and running included. Technique and the ability to perform it in dry land will help you be able to do it on snow. Technical flaws that occur on snow are the same in dry land and we fix those if a fun learning environment. Changing the brain pattern for where the body is supposed to be is our expertise.
The hows and whys are explained in a way where everyone learns the technique and why the change needs to happen and how it will happen. Each aspect of skate, V1, V2 and V2 alternate will be worked on. In classic, double pole, stride and kick double pole will all be worked on. Technique will be on the hills around Hyland Lake and their will be repeats up and down the hill to work on the basics of both skate and classic. Each session will have about 15 minutes or strength, 25 minutes or running and 50 minutes or ski technique on hills. Athletes can test drive this for one session or sigh up for all 10 sessions for $225. The group size is limited to 15 people so if your interested sign up. In the event of a cold nasty rain, we cancel our make up date is the 3rd Thursday or November. Who knows there may be snow by then. October 5th and November 9th will be sessions that include a stop at Poor Richards for those who would like to socialize. This program is the lead up to the winter program to ensure you have a great racing winter. Olympic Ski Coach Kevin Brochman will be leading this session.
