NENSA is proud to celebrate the success of New England’s forty top cross-country ski racers in naming the 2017-2018 Elite and Development Teams. The athletes named to these teams were leaders for their clubs and teams in Eastern Cup, Junior National, NCAA, U23/World Junior Championship and World Cup competitions last winter.
This program aims to support and facilitate development of top athletes toward the goal of international excellence. In addition to recognition for accomplishments, this program provides incentives for athletes to seek high levels of competition, and to encourage athletes to think in terms of long-range development. Information on qualifying criteria and team benefits can be accessed here: Development / Elite. Look for team members this winter wearing a specially designed headband from SKIDA.
As part our developing programming, NENSA will be hosting a Pre-Olympic Roller Ski Invitational at the Trapp Family Lodge November 4th. The forty athletes on these teams will receive the first invitations. Stay tuned for more details on this exciting opportunity to watch the best skiers in New England (and the world) to be held in conjunction with the NENSA/NNF Winter Kickoff Party!
Congratulations to all of the athletes and we look forward to seeing what you accomplish this winter.
