Fall Dryland Training

September 12, 2016

We received many positive responses from our Race Team participants on our proposed Dryland Training Program for this fall, so it’s a go!  We are kicking that program off with a visit by Doug Lewis, a former US Ski Team athlete and two time Olympian, on Sunday, October 9, 2016.  He will be conducting a one day ELITEAM World Cup Workout Clinic (see link below).

Dryland training is an integral part of alpine ski racing.  It includes movement patterns specific to upper level racing and participating in such a program will enable racers to practice racing techniques prior to getting on snow.

This 3-day program is not designed to get the athlete in shape, hopefully participation in summer and fall sports will have done that. With a curriculum designed by a team of elite level athletes (including Doug Lewis) the racers can expect to work on: balance, coordination, agility, strength and power drills.  These are necessary areas to concentrate on so  the racers can be consistent and fast in the race course when we get on snow.

The program will take place over 3 weekend days, starting off with Doug Lewis and the ELITEAM Dryland clinic on Sunday, October 9th and continuing with Saturday, October 22nd and Saturday, November 12th.  The first day with Doug will be an 8 hour day with the subsequent days being 4 hours in duration from 10:00 – 2:00.  Dryland Training is open to all InterClub and TriState racers and will take place rain or shine (Please indicate which program your child is enrolled in on the order form).  Most activities will take place in the base area of Ski Butternut or inside the instructors lounge (located above the rental shop) in the event of rain.

The cost for the Dryland Training program is $125.00 for all 3 days, or $40.00 for only the Doug Lewis ELITEAM Dryland clinic.
