    Travel Wax: Swix LF 6  for skate and Swix LF4 for classic [What is travel wax? This means applying a layer of glide wax to the glide areas of both sets of cross-country skis. Do not scrape or brush. This way the layer of wax protects the bases of your skis from getting scratched during transit. Once at the race site, athletes will scrape and brush their skis before going to practise on the race course.] 

    Skis: Please make sure that your classic wax pockets are clearly marked. Please make sure that your name, category and gender is on your skis above the binding on a piece of tape so that your wax team can clearly see who skis are who’s. Also good to have your name on your poles and boots incase you leave them somewhere they can be returned to you.

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 TEAM. Every single one of you is an essential piece of this team.
Putting your best effort forward, creates a stronger team and better team environment.  
Remember our 3 part intensity team rule:
1) Respect the zone
2) Give your best effort within the zone
3) High fives and encouragement to teammates before, during and after any practice.
