NENSA Technique and Coaches Clinic, Bowdoin College
September 15 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Come join some of our region’s best coaches and improve your rollerski technique and dryland training. These one-day clinics are catered towards adults, coaches, and more broadly anyone who wants to improve on their fundamentals in preparation for the ski season. Attendees will be led through dryland progressions and rollerski drills for both classic and skate, followed by a discussion of training methods. Take advantage of these amazing clinics to brush up on skiing and get some helpful tips for the coming season before the snow starts to fall. Even if you have never tried rollerskiing before, consider signing up. This clinic will be hosted by Nathan Alsobrook, the head coach of the Bowdoin College Nordic Ski Team.
Registration is now OPEN on SkiReg.
Note: The AM technique portion of this clinic will satisfy the USSA L100 clinic requirement (to complete the L100 certification you will also need to take the online course and test). NENSA-licensed participants who complete the entire clinic will receive their NENSA Regional Coaches Certification.
