One of NENSA’s newest sponsors is Nordic Team Solutions. As a result of their support we are excited to offer a free Nordic Team Solutions 1 year membership to one high school coach from each New England State! This is Andy Newell’s coaches’ educational programming, which is run in collaboration with many other sport experts. Popular educational topics at Nordic Team Solutions include: Training Planning & Execution, Race Preparation & Mental Training, and Team Building. For more information on their offerings please check out their website.
This year’s winners were selected from a pool of nominees by popular vote among each state’s high school coaches associations. The goal of this year’s program is to promote professional development for newer coaches who take a highly active part in our skiing community. And the deserving winners are:
Massachusetts: Ryan Touponce of Waconah High School
Vermont: Caitlin Smith of Bellows Free Academy-Fairfax
New Hampshire: Erin Waters of Concord High School
Maine: (tie) Emmy Held of Mt. Blue High School & Ben Geissinger of Spruce Mountain High School
Congratulations to the year’s winners. We look forward to seeing you in action on the trails this season!
