TR1 / TRJ Roller skiing this week
This week there will be two roller ski practices, 6pm on Thursday Sept 17th and 9:30 am on Sunday Sept 20th. The practices start from SEK elementary school.
Practices will start on time, and as we are heading out on open roads, if you happen to be running late please drop your child ahead of the group so that they are not roller skiing alone to catch up.
Here is the official team policy on roller ski safety, please review prior to Thursday. Any athletes that do not conform to the safety policy will have to miss the roller ski part of the session.
Review the post on how to sharpen rollerski tips. Sharp tips keep the poles from slipping when planted and encourage good technique. The special roller ski tips work much better than snow ski tips as they are made of carbide steel and do not wear down to a nubbin after a few practices on pavement. Kelowna Cycle has sets of both sizes in stock as of last week.
