YMCA Masters / Waxing Clinics & National Team Fundraisers

As part of the new partnership between the National Team and YMCA Nordic Centre a series of Masters Technique and Waxing Clinics will be held at Falls Creek throughout the 2015 winter. With snow now hitting the ground and the season about to begin properly the first of these clinics will be held this weekend, with a Waxing Clinic at Howmans Gap on Saturday evening and a skating technique Master Clinic on Sunday morning. The clinics also double as fundraising activities for the XC Towards 2018 project.

The on-snow clinics will be headed up by Falls Creek National Training Centre coach Kein Einaste from Estonia, a former World Cup athlete who has already been overseeing technique development with National Team athletes on the Falls Creek snow-making areas since June 29. Together with the other YMCA Nordic Centre coaches/instructors and National Team athletes,  Kein has a bag full of tricks to get your technique going in the right direction.

Registration for all clinics can be made via the YMCA Falls Creek Nordic Centre, either in person or by calling to 03 5758 3408. After-hours clinic registration can also be made to Finn Marsland via finn.marsland@gmail.com or 0408 147 940.
