Anyone interested in the UoC cross country ski team can get more information at our start of year meeting. It is in EEEL room 214 from 6 to 7 on September. Meeting will be fairly informal. Drop by and signup or ask questions if you are not sure if you want to join.
The first team workout will be the day before, Wednesday September 21st. Meet at the stairwell just outside the olympic oval at 6:15 pm. We will run down to Edworthy Park. At the park we will do core strength as a group for about 30 minutes, then go for a cool down run back to the oval.
Students are welcome to join us for a few workouts before fully deciding to join the team.
For information or to signup email Charles Curtis, Dinos XC Ski Team coach.
The cross country ski team is training on Wednesday evening starting at the olympic oval. We meet at the stairwell just outside the entrance to the oval. We typically run down to Edworthy Park, do group core strength, then finish with a 45 min run.
If you are a UoC student feel free to join us on September 7th and 14th. A full training schedule will start the following week (after the 14th).
This upcoming ski season the team will ski weekly at Confederation Golf Course. Winsport will be eliminating the majority of the cross country trails at Canada Olympic Park. Foothills nordic is fundraising to purchase snow making equipment and other equipment necessary to groom Confederation Golf Course. There will be no trail fees, however you are encouraged to support the foothills fundraising effort.
I would recommend against purchasing a Canada Olympic Park cross country trail pass.
The team will have its start of the year meeting for new and returning students the second week of class. Date and time will be posted on this site in early September.
The team has been unofficially training all summer. We run on Wednesday evenings at various locations. Please check out our facebook page for summer training times and locations.
If you are interested in joining the team please email me, email@example.com and I can add you to the email list.
