Holiday Break Update

After a few days off for the Holiday's, we returned to training on Tuesday afternoon starting up a SL block.  The athletes have been working hard over the last 3 days and are ready for the Cochran's Holiday Night SL tomorrow!  For many of our athletes, this will be their first start of the season.  Having coached J3's the last couple of years, we always started our season off at Cochran's.  It is such a great place to begin your season with the easy to moderate terrain.  Athletes are able to continue with their focus from training without having to worry about skiing an aggressive pitch.  Everyone should be fired up for tomorrow as we have had a great block of SL and despite the weather, we have had a solid start to the season in terms of development.  On top of that, Cochran's is a sweet place to race!

I do have a set of competition results to report from yesterday's jump rope contest.  We had three athletes jumping at once for a 1 minute time period.  All athletes were given two opportunities to set a personal best for seeding purposes and then the top 7 were put into a single bracket elimination.  The athlete champion then moved on to face 1991 World Jump Rope Champion (8 - 10 yrs old) Erin Mascolino.  We saw many personal best records shattered, even in the bracket tournament!
