Howdy Folks, 

Welcome to a new season, it is going to be one to remember. 
Please read this as it is very important to the start of our season. 

Here is the link to summer registration 
https://zone4.ca/register.asp?id=20962&lan=1&cartlevel=1 

Early Bird 2019-2020 registration is open for two weeks 

Save now and register for the fall/winter at this past year's prices.
Program descriptions here:  https://www.chelseanordiq.ca/programs/


Parents and athletes should have their email addresses entered during 
registration. Email lists get created from the registeration pages so if the 
athlete is not on the email lists they do not get the email. They need to be
responsible for keeping up on email. 



Training begins 

On May 11th you will be able to demo - Rundle Sport Roller Ski,  I like these
 skis for both skate and classic they are good quality and the club pricing is good. 
Club pricing will also be available see below for more details. The rush skate and 
Rush Classic are all that you need. The flex educe the amount of road vibration but 
they are heavier and slower. 

Training has now begun for the summer here is a training plan for the next week so that 
you can get a start on the season. For those that know their strength plans continue with 
these. For those that are new please use the 20-30min core strength plan found here 

For training this year athletes will need. 
Quality running shoes, heart rate monitor, classic and skate roller skis, roller ski poles 
with sharp roller ski tips, water bottle and water bottle holder.  There will be opportunity
 for athletes to mountain bike this year during training but there will always be running 
options. Training plans will be given out once you are registered. 

There will be a athlete and parent meeting Thursday May 16th 

Parents and volunteering during practice. 
This year we are going to have need for parents to help out with coaching,
logistics and with safety during practice. Assistant coaches will help with coaching, 
safety will have a first aid kit and follow on a bike, or running with the group and 
logistics will help with setting up before and picking up after practice. There will also 
be times during testing and time trials where more parents are need to help with 
recording data and timing. 

We will start this as a sign up sheet but as of May 15 names will be added to the 
sheet to fill positions and to makes sure that everyone has a role during the summer.
 If you are not able to be there for your volunteering session it will be your responsibility 
to change with someone else.

The first training camp will be June 25th to 28th at owl rafting. 

I will be looking for 3 parent volunteers to hep with this camp in driving, logistics. It is a
fun camp to be a part of. Please let me know if you are interested.

Hi Team,

Congrats for all the great racing over the past month!!
This week is Chelsea Sprints week! All nordic race athletes are expected to
either race and/or volunteer.

Remember: The number 1 thing you can do as an athlete to insure quality training sessions
is proper Nutrition and SLEEP!! 

The theme of the month is Resiliency.
The best athletes are the ones who partake in active reflexion after each
training or race experience. Reflecting on what you did well, what you learned, and
what you would like to do better next time is a precursor for improvement.
Getting a little stronger mentally, physically and emotionally after each an every experience.
