Sporte Etude

For athletes interested in doing a modified Sport etude at Philemon Wright High School.
 It is possible to talk to your guidance councillor and do 2 days of training with sport etude.
 Hadley is doing a sport etude but it is only for grades 7 and 8. grade 9 to 11 athletes can
 still join sport etude but they will miss class a couple of times a week, it is a good way to get 
your training done during the day, be with a highly motivated group of athletes. 

I recommend Wednesdays and Fridays from 1:30-3:30pm
Training will be at the Relais Plien Air
The cost of this program will be $650 for the year 
If you are interested talk to Moe

Skinouk Roller Ski Race
On September 21st we will be participating in the Skinouk Roller ski race. The race will
 take place at p5 with bib pick up at 6:30am and first race starting at 8am. It will be a mass 
start race. Fondeur Laurentide is also coming for a training camp so we will join them for a 
mini local camp. More details to come. 
The race costs $25 and here is the registration link 
This race will take place in the hills at p5 if you are not comfortable with the hills then I do not 
encourage you to race. We will be practicing hills this week end so you will know if you are ready to 
race or not do not miss Saturday's practice if you are new to the hills. 

Team Meeting

Next Thursday, September 19th  we will do a team meeting. This is a mandatory meeting for both parents and athletes for both returning and new athletes. There will be a lot of valuable information given that will help your athlete and your family be successful this year. This will be an interactive meeting where you get to give feedback and input into the coming season. 

The purpose of this meeting will be to discuss:
Training process
Goals for up coming season
Trips for the coming season (Dates, costs, support teams)
Which athletes should go to which races
Ranking systems for Quebec and Canada (Quebec cup ranking and Canadian Points list, CPL)
