Winter 2017-2018 Ski Programming

In addition to comfortable lodging and excellent skiing, we offer annual members great ski training and coaching. For winter 2017-18, opportunities exist for skier members of all ages to train, learn technique, improve, and just have a blast on snow all winter long!

'17-'18 Programming Overview and Registration

Have your annual membership for the winter? Membership, which runs from November 1 - October 31, is required for participation in our season-long programs. You'll be able to renew your membership for the 2017-2018 season starting October 18th, 2017. 

Registration for our winter programs is open. Open enrollment for all youth 2017-2018 winter programs will close on January 15th. After that date, registration is by the coaches' permission only. Coaches may choose not to accept late registrations, or may request that late registrants take one or more lessons from the Touring Center or elsewhere prior to joining the program. Please understand that the goal of this policy is not to be exclusive, but rather to keep the learning environment safe and productive for all participants. To inquire about joining after the cutoff date, contact coach Anna: anna.schulz@craftsbury.com

Catamounts: Introductory Skiing for Kids

Cats

For skiers ages 6-11, our ever-popular Catamounts program aims to build enthusiasm for Nordic skiing through ski play and skill development. It meets twice a week, this year on Wednesdays at 3:30pm and Sundays at 1:30pm, giving you the option to sign up for both days or just one. For the 2017-2018 season, the Catamount program costs $50 for one day per week, while the two-day option is $100. Registration prices increase after December 1st. The first day of the program is Sunday, December 17th, and practices will run into March. This year, registration closes on Monday, January 15th, after which participants may join with permission from the coaching staff. (The goal is not to cap participation, but rather to have a more cohesive group.) Participants will learn both skating and classical techniques with lots of fun and games! Don't have ski equipment? No problem - equipment use (during practice) is included in the program fee. Another option is our season-long rental program, which will enable kids to hang onto their equipment for the whole season and use it outside of practice times. A two-pair, season-long rental will cost $150 and includes skate skis, classic skis, skate poles, classic poles, and combi boots. Rental orders can be made here (link available soon); if you have questions, send an email to our junior skiing program staff: jrskiing@craftsbury.com and head Catamounts coach Amy Schulz: craftsburycatamounts@gmail.com. Please note that the rental program is only for kids participating in Craftsbury programming! Amy Schulz will be leading the Catamounts program again this year, with help from GRP members and additional staff. Read about our coaching staff here

BKL Development

Mt. Craftsbury BKL pic

Our Bill Koch League (BKL) development program is for kids ages 8-12 who already have a season or two of skiing experience (perhaps from our Catamounts program) and are ready to step it up a notch. Participants should be familiar with both skate and classic skiing. Participants ages 8-10 should be able to comfortably ski a 1-2km loop in both skate and classic techniques, with minimal falling, otherwise they are better suited to the Catamount group. The BKL development program costs $200 and will meet 2 days per week, on Wednesdays at 3:30pm and Sundays at 3:00pm. Wondering what on earth the "Bill Koch League" is? Bill Koch (pronounced "coke") is America's first and only Olympic medalist in cross country skiing, and New England's youth ski league is named for him. Each year there's a BKL festival somewhere in New England (this year in Weston, MA) and it's typically the highlight of the season for young racers. This is a good group for kids interested in perhaps doing some BKL races and/or the BKL festival, as well as just having fun and developing skills through play. While the emphasis is still on fun, the BKL development group will also be introduced to more ski-specific training and technique work. Equipment is NOT included in the program but participants are encouraged to take advantage of our season-long rental options. All participants in this group will need to have complete skate and classic rental setups (waxless classic equipment is fine). Please note that the season-long rental program is only for kids participating in Craftsbury programming! If you have questions, please send an email to our junior coaches: jrskiing@craftsbury.com. Craftsbury junior coaches Anna Schulz, Audrey Mangan, Jake Barton, and Ollie Burruss will be the primary coaches for BKL development and will be assisted by Ethan Dreissigacker, and GRP and other staff as needed.

BKL Competitive

Sage BKL

The Bill Koch League (BKL) competitive program is primarily for kids in grades 5-8 with significant skiing experience and a desire to race. This group has a strong focus on racing and ski-specific training (though we do try to keep it fun!). Most BKL comp participants are part of our programs year-round. Wondering what on earth the "Bill Koch League" is? Bill Koch (pronounced "coke") is America's first and only Olympic medalist in cross country skiing, and New England's youth ski league is named for him. Each year there's a BKL festival somewhere in New England (this year in Weston, MA) and it's typically the highlight of the season for young racers. The BKL comp program gets kids ready for BKL races in addition to preparation for the next level in skiing. Participants in this group generally graduate to the Eastern Cup Racing team when they reach the U16 age group. Biathlon training is built into the weekly practices as coaching resources allow. In the 2017-2018 season, this group will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:30pm and Sundays at 9:00am. Some Tuesday practices may incorporate the Craftsbury Tuesday night race series. The cost of this program is $300 for the season; fee increase November 1. As with the other programs, participation provides access to competitively priced season-long rentals. Please note that the rental program is only for kids participating in Craftsbury programming! If you have questions, send an email to jrskiing@craftsbury.com.The BKL competitive group will be led by Craftsbury junior coaches Anna Schulz, Audrey Mangan, Jake Barton, Ollie Burruss, and Ethan Dreissigacker, with occasional help from biathlon coach Sam Dougherty and GRP skiers.

High School Development

230dobie2feb09.jpg

Our High School Development program is aimed toward kids age 12+ who have some skiing experience and who are excited about skiing in general, but aren’t ready to make the commitment to year-round training. Some kids in this group may enjoy racing, while others may not. The focus will be on achieving a high level of proficiency in basic skiing skills while getting active and having fun. This particular program has two goals: (1) to offer an arena for post-BKL-age kids to continue skiing, especially those who may not have school teams; and (2) to equip participants with the skills and knowledge to successfully make skiing a lifelong activity. This program costs $200 for the season and will meet on Tuesdays and Fridays at 3:30pm. The High School Development group will be led by Craftsbury junior coaches Anna Schulz, Audrey Mangan, Jake Barton, Ollie Burruss, and Ethan Dreissigacker, with occasional help from biathlon coach Sam Dougherty and GRP skiers.

Eastern Cup Racing

callie and phoebe

As the name suggests, this group is for junior skiers who plan to compete in regional races and focus seriously on racing. Meant for kids age 14+, the Eastern Cup Racing program provides training specifically structured to help the skiers meet their racing goals. Participants in this program typically compete in high school races, Eastern Cups, Junior Olympic Qualifiers, New England U16 Championships, and/or Eastern High School Championships. This group meets 5 days per week. Practices for the winter of 2017-2018 will be Tuesdays-Fridays at 3:30pm and Sundays at 9:00am. Biathlon training is added to the schedule every few weeks as coaching resources permit. Tuesday practices may incorporate the Craftsbury Tuesday night race series, depending on the training goals for the week. 

Participants in this program must be committed skiers with previous race experience and a willingness to train year-round. Coaches expect that skiers will complete a training log, attend at least 3 practices per week, and complete a training plan on days when there is not practice. With very few exceptions, new members are expected to join in the summer to allow for more effective coaching during the competition season. The program costs $500 for the 2016-2017 winter season if registration is completed by November 1st. The program fee includes access to a weekly and yearly training plan, training log assessment, individualized technique work, discounts on training camps, and access to race support (available at an additional fee). As with the other programs, participation also provides access to rentals, but kids in this group are encouraged to purchase their own equipment if at all possible. If you have questions about the group or equipment, please send an email to jrskiing@craftsbury.com. This group will be led by Craftsbury junior coaches Anna Schulz, Audrey Mangan, Jake Barton, Ollie Burruss, and Ethan Dreissigacker, with occasional coaching by Pepa Miloucheva, Sam Dougherty, and Green Racing Project team members as well.

Craftsbury Outdoor Sports Academy (COSA) - High School

Grffin quarry road

New in 2017, the Craftsbury Outdoor Sports Academy (COSA) is a partnership between the Craftsbury Outdoor Center and Craftsbury Academy, our local public school. The Outdoor Center provides coaching support through its existing Nordic programming and the Academy supports those goals by offering participating students class scheduling flexibility. By providing a schedule that allows for specific, scheduled morning free periods and some longer-term academic flexibility for travel, the Academy allows participating students more time at the Outdoor Center, pursuing their training and racing goals, while still largely participating in the Academy’s excellent public school curriculum. There are online class options and tutoring available to accommodate the times students miss regular school periods for morning training. Our mission is to provide expanded educational and athletic opportunities to Vermont students by integrating Craftsbury Academy and Craftsbury Outdoor Center programs. COSA is by application only. We offer both a high school program and a middle school program. Middle school students do not participate in morning training during school days.  Learn more about COSA here. This group will be led by Craftsbury junior coaches Anna Schulz, Audrey Mangan, Jake Barton, and Ollie Burruss, with occasional coaching by Pepa Miloucheva, Sam Dougherty and Ethan Dreissigacker.

Adult Recreational Ski Group

adultRec

Stay tuned. At the moment we do not have an adult recreational ski group planned. 


 

Part of our mission is to make lifelong sport accessible to one and all. As such, we have a scholarship program to support kids who may not otherwise be able to participate in our programs. We also offer assistance to families in our programs whose children have qualified for and are traveling to major skiing competitions. You can complete a scholarship application here. Feel free to contact junior coach Anna Schulz (anna.schulz@craftsbury.com) with questions about scholarships. 

Still have questions? Contact us via skiing@craftsbury.com for more details.

Hope to see you on the trails!
