U10/Little Riders Festival 2015

When: February 28, 2015

Where: HBM and other areas

This is the premiere U10/Little Rider event, designed for the little guys in mind, 5-9 year young!

This year it's a two day event, with many fun components that will challenge and test the athletes skills. On Saturday you'll see Speedtrap, Jump for distance, Gully Grind, Dual GS, Box slide and some other stations as well. Costume is encouraged by all of course!
On Sunday there will be a Snow-X with athletes randomly devided in to heats of four. The TEAM of four (that's what this is all about, TEAM) will get a time on their run and the fastest time of all 20 heats will award the winning TEAM.

There will also be the good ol' BBQ and awards for both days on Sunday in the finish corral at the Snow-X course.

Pick up of your child on Saturday will be at the Club Cabin, while on Sunday you'll pick up at FINISH AREA AT PRAIRIE T-BAR. 

To make this event run we'll need volunteers, so please go to the bottom of this page and hit the link that will lead you to our VolunteerSpot Group Page. Find the U10/Little Rider event and sign up for any of the positions. I would love to see as many U10/Little Riders parents sign up!

Dryland this week!

When: March 2, 2015

Where: Monday, Wednesday at Muheim (520-700 PM).

I start seeing a downward spiral in attendance for dryland, especially from the U14 and older athletes!? Why? Ask yourself. Pretty much same time as last year, where you're getting tired, Provincial exams, winter has it's grip and it's easy to say "I don't want to". I suggest that you take a deep breath and head to Muheim for the precious dryland that you most likely will not get another way?

The indoor sessions are geared towards the 11 year old and older. 

So, from now until March 18, 2015 we'll offer dryland on every Monday and Wednesday from 530-7 PM. Unless the Muheim school is closed for Holidays etc.

No flat sole skate shoes as they're VERY bad for your kids knees, hips etc. The floor at Muheim is hard so I encourage running shoes. Show up with CLEAN shoes.

Dress for dryland, not school or dinner i;e workout gear ready to be sweated in! Water bottle is a must.

Come on out and partake in a very important part in your life!
