L100 In-Person Practicum and Technique Clinic: Sudbury, Massachusetts
November 12 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
This one-day clinic is open to anyone looking to improve their ski technique, and learn ways to teach others effectively. We will cover both classic and skate techniques. This clinic is part of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard (USSS) L100 certification process but you do not have to seek certification to participate. The clinic will be led by Cate Brams, EMXC and 2022 NENSA Coach of the Year.
To receive USSS L100 credit you must signup through the USSS website, complete the prerequisites, and sign up for the in-person assessment. More info on all that HERE. If you cannot complete the prerequisites before the deadline please select the USSS L100 In-Person Assessment category so we can best keep track of attendees.
During the 3 hour technique clinic, coaches on the L100 track will participate in coaching demonstrations.
NENSA membership information HERE.
Participants are encouraged to rollerski during the technique portion of the clinic. However, rollerskiing is NOT required. We will be staying in the parking lot of Lincoln-Sudbury School, so you can easily stay with the group on foot and learn about how to coach ski technique.
All clinic participants will have access to our fleet of Swenor skis and we will also have Swix poles to demo.
