Training Sept 29 to Oct 5th

This is week 22 of our yearly training plan. It is a building week. See you at practice. 

Race Planning: Please fill out this race document on google docs, it is to let us know which races you are planning on attending for this year. please have this filled out by Sept 31. If you need help with this talk to Moe or Katie

It is time to get your cross Country Canada Racing license.  This license is very important for cross country skiers, in categories juvenile and up for both Quebec and Ontario athletes, biathletes you do not need this. This license allows you to collect CPL points, this is how athletes are ranked in Canada and it is connected to the Federation International de Ski (FIS) point list which is the international point list. Once you have your license and you have points on the list you can see how you rank with athletes in Canada and internationally. It is interesting and mandatory for your development as an athlete.

You get points based on how you finish in races that are provincially (Quebec Cup or Ontario Cup), Nationally (Easterns, Nationals) or FIS sanctioned (Craftsbury). 

More importantly if you have no points,  you will always start at the back of the pack as you are seeded in races depending on your CPL point ranking. CPL point is how different teams are selected (provincial teams, talent squad, junior national team, national team etc. 

For those that are doing only one Quebec cup race (Easterns) it would be fine to have a day license which is cheaper but it will mean that you do not collect points for next year.  

Follow this link to register online for your CCC race license and for those going to Craftsbury you will need to get a FIS license.

You will need the following information
