Snow Sports Team in Training

Post date: Jan 20, 2015 6:29:11 PM

(please click on the heading for full story with photos) On Sat. Jan. 17, several athletes from around the district came together at Horseshoe Nordic to practice snowshoeing and Nordic. Most athletes are preparing for North Bay, but others were there as well. Barrie welcomed Huronia snowshoeing, a snowshoer from Oakville, and a Nordic skier and two snowshoers (with coach!) from Durham. In addition to this date, Hardwood Ski & Bike was the location for two high performance training clinics. Nordic specialist Jack Sasseville worked with both classic skiers and skate skiers and coaches on technique the past two Monday evenings. Athletes and coaches from Barrie, Muskoka and Peterborough benefited from the sessions. Good luck to the team as they head to Provincials at the end of the month!
