Practice Updates

Wed March 4: Full club practice (except not USA). Skate

  • Special waxing demo during practice: “How to prepare your skis for summer storage” by Chris Li. With a title like that, how can you miss it?

Thurs. March 5: Scandinavia practice and EMBK/CSU Ski-up night. Skate.

  • Ski-up night is our annual event with CSU to provide more information to skiers considering CSU and their parents. This is for skiers eligible for CSU next year, that is, 14 years old by 12/31/2020. It is open to all age-eligible EMBK skiers and parents, no commitments – just an opportunity to learn more. Schedule:
    • 6:30 (prompt) EMBK skiers meet on snow and join CSU for the remainder of their practice
    • 6:35 Parents meet for short presentation by CSU coach(es) and Q&A. In addition to CSU coaches there will be parents who have had skiers transition from EMBK to CSU present to answer questions.
    • 7:10: skiers come inside for pizza (parents get pizza too)
    • 7:30 any remaining pizza gets eaten by EMBK skiers <13 years old
  • Skiers ages <13 in Scandinavia will have regular country practice.

Sat. March 7, 8:30-10:00 am.  Games day!

Dec 9 All-Club Practice

We look forward to seeing all of our EMBK skiers and families at our second all-club practice at Leo J. Martin Ski Track this Saturday, Dec 9, from 9am – 10:30am. Please look at our website before all practices to get the final call on practice type (e.g. dry land, skate, classic or combo) easternmassnordic.org/ .

Also, please remind your kids to dress in layers, wear good running shoes, bring the appropriate ski gear (per website instructions) and bring their water bottles.

Overall Schedule:

8-9 am Roller ski (returning skiers only, age 11+)
8:30 am Pick-up trail passes in the cafe (for pre-register) or submit applications
9 am All-club practice: Break into country groups for training

Waxing Clinic

We will hold another waxing clinic for parents during practice on Saturday. We plan to focus on on the art of kick wax and klister application, followed by “frustration free removal.” If you are new to skiing or just have questions, please stop by the wax tent at 9:15 am.

Parent Volunteers are Essential: Test the Waters With Easy, Fun Volunteer Opportunities (Info Session, Dec 9, 10am in Cafe)

Our club is entirely parent-run. We need all families to donate a parent’s time and skills to keep EMBK running smoothly. We still have vacancies in a number of simple, but critical volunteer roles.

As examples, being a Country Parent or helping with weekly games at practice, are great ways to jump into the EMBK volunteer waters! Come learn more about various volunteer opportunities in the Cafe at 10am on Dec 9.

Also, if you selected “country parent” as your potential volunteer interest during registration, please join us for this discussion for more details about your responsibilities. If you cannot make the meeting, please contact Josie Petersen, our Country Parent Coordinator.
