GNST summer training will focus on age-based conditioning with a focus on movement skills and agility. Our goal is for the kids to have fun with team mates, while gaining movement skills and fitness.   We know you all get in plenty of distance on your own!

Cameron Blake  –  Entering 7th grade and younger.  Must be at least 10.

Assistants/Subs – Robin Brooks, Craig Hertz and more.

 Activities

Activities will include: ski specific exercises like bounding, relays, obstacle courses, ball games (soccer, passing games). Roller skiing – Those who are at least 13 by this summer and with a coach approved ski skill level will have the option to roller ski.   The roller ski focus will be on agility with some skiing.
