SSA Futures Wangaratta Report

This report has been republished from the SSA website:

The SSA Futures Program is in full swing again this season with a number of dryland programs available ahead of the snow season. The most recent program was for those young Cross Country skiers around North East Victoria.

Australian Cross Country Ski Team members, Paul Kovacs, Anna Trnka, Xanthea Dewez and Ash Kildea, and National Junior coach and organiser of the SSA Cross Country Futures weekend, Nick Grimmer, showed the aspiring young skiers what it takes to be a champion.Wangaratta Futures Session

The morning session at the Barr Reserve included circuit training, strength and agility activities, gym sessions and dream mapping – the Fast & Female way.

When the rain finally stopped it was time to try the roller skis. Participants were divided into ability levels and first-timers quickly acquired enough skills to join in the fun rollerski games, at the end of the session.

The kids were very impressive on day 2 (Sunday) when they took on the challenge of a rollerski from Everton to Beechworth (13kM uphill) There was a 5k option for the beginners, still a massive effort for first timers! There was 20 participants in total and 4 national team members plus the national junior coach.

Participants came from Wangaratta, Yackandandah, Albury and King Valley.
