SWSC Freestyle A: Whiteface & End of Season Party!

SWSC Freestyle A: Whiteface & End of Season Party!
Hey A team,
Congratulations guys… We are completing a super successful year! The end of the season always brings mixed feelings…The happiness of winding down a very busy year and the sadness of missing our friends and the competition experiences.  I guess all I can say is that for most of us our freestyle-cycle is year-round, we will be taking a breather for a few months before ramp camps and Mt Hood begin for some.
Before we talk about the coming weekend I would like to congratulate our skiers who qualified for US championships: Jamie, Maddie, Kaela, Blake and Patrick. Maddie and Kaela could not make it… But our other three skiers- killed it and we were super excited for just the opportunity to make and compete at our National  championships at Waterville Valley, New Hampshire this past weekend!
Onto Lake Placid/Whiteface this weekend for the spring Bumps and Jumps competition. We will just be staffing the singles event on Saturday and then returning to Stratton for the Freedogger/End of year awards banquet as quickly as possible Saturday afternoon. Our End of Season Bash will be held in Black Bear Lodge's Green Mountain Room from 5:00-8:00pm. (VENUE HAS CHANGED!)
We will have Megan and Bogue at Whiteface Friday for training and comp.You can meet coaches in the base lodge at 10:30 training day. 
On this Saturday- competition day you meet the coaches at 7:45 in the lodge.
All information pertaining to the competition is at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1fW8wYkBK_ab9yUFozf6xxiXkIy1eaiYjjhxhNmdUEQE 
So as I said lots of freestyle things rumbling through our heads right now and for the coming summer. We would love to have as many athletes from our A team join our preferred Summer camp partner, All Out Freestyle, at Mt Hood this summer for a very important and fun training camp. Tim and I feel it is super important that we follow through with our training regime that we have installed this winter with all of our A squad members . It’s important that we work on our carving/turns drills, strong entry and exit out of airs, and our speed/control.  These will be the priority for our A-Team training at Hood. Many of you will also be working on upgrading your aerial and qualification needs. 
Lake Placid has always been a great training facility and with All Out Freestyle being one of the few to be able to use the Olympic Training Center venue- we feel our training camps provide tremendous value that can't be found elsewhere.  Everyone on the a team knows about this facility and we hope you check out our schedule and send in a deposit as soon as possible for we are nearing sellout capacity. Both mount hood registration and Lake Placid registration and information is available at  AllOutFreestyle.com
So we look forward to seeing everybody this weekend whether it is LakePlacid or the end-of-the-year party at Stratton! I know I’ve had a fantastic time with all of you skiers and parents!  I give a huge shout out to my two coaches Megan Moores and Adam Kohutnicki who have been there and done a fantastic job for our long season of events and comps. 
We look forward to seeing everyone this summer and killing again it next winter!
Happy trails,

SWSC Freestyle A: Eastern Championships & Junior Nationals

SWSC Freestyle A: Eastern Championships & Junior Nationals

Hey A Team!

Holy cow you guys killed it last week at our Presidents week training camp. Some of you got six days of awesome training-some got two or three days of valuable snow time. Whatever amount of time on snow was huge and valuable. World Cup allowed us to work on so many aspects of our skiing. Even Beeline moguls were a great aid in working on line & form, arms and body positioning. Our Detour jump allowed us to perfect aerial tricks that might have been neglected throughout the competition season. Well done gang… So much progress... so much more to learn-but that’s the beauty of the sport, we get better without even knowing it sometimes. At other times we hit the wall and must regroup. Long story short we’ve had a great year on the Eastern competition tour and still a little more action to be had. 👍

This weekend we head to the Eastern championships at Killington. I have been told that the course is being built this week. That means that potentially we might have some good conditions and it will be fresh for us. We will wait and see. 😉 Megan, Adam and I will meet you guys in the upstairs of the Killington K1 lodge on Friday at 10:30am. Training starts at 11:00am. Lift tickets are available at the training center for $50 cash. Coaches will meet athletes on Saturday morning before the event at 7:45am at the K1 base lodge again. Any information pertaining to the Eastern Championships at Killington is available at…https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12uqjY0-h3SXcbhGBGYajE0jT0P63VKbOosBDoSdbooQ

Saturday morning training goes from 8:30- 9:30am and the competition begins at 10:00am. It is the same schedule for Duals on Sunday. Good luck to all competitors!


I am very proud to announce that we have qualified seven (maybe eight!?) of our SWSC athletes for Junior Nationals at Snowbird. Jamie, Maddie, Blake, Patrick, Jolie, Charlottte, and Jenny… Congratulations guys great job! Emily returns back to competition this week, she is pending for JNs, welcome back Emily! We will be flying out to Snowbird for the Junior National Championships on Monday March 4th. Official Schedule can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lATgBU-_7wJ0Zq1FwU-w_ZFiN4dTSwKZ/view I will coordinate directly with those going.

This is a huge accomplishment for our very strong weekend program, and I’m very excited. All of us put in extra time and extra labor to get the best results we can . And in the end it’s all about improving our skills and having fun doing the sport we love. For those who did not make Junior Nationals we’re going to keep training on freshly rebuild World Cup course March 9-10th. (rebuild happening March 4-6th) We are going to keep improving our skiing and maybe next year it’ll be a trip the JN’s.
Looking ahead there is some chatter about a possible event at Lake Placid on March 23rd (with points!). I will keep everyone updated on that situation. As of right now, we are planning on attending Moguls ONLY on Saturday then high tailing it back to Stratton for our year end awards banquet.
Looking further ahead I would like to discuss summer camps, All Out Freestyle is the preferred summer camp partner of the SWSC Freestyle. I have received confirmation from many of you that you will be attending All Out Freesrtyle's Mt Hood training camp, June 23rd- July 6th. Please visit AllOutFreestyle.com for more information and to register. Tim and I will be coaching and we will be bringing in some high profile guest coaches as well.
My thoughts about Mt Hood is that it would be extremely beneficial for us as a team to continue working together on specific skills that we have improved all winter and try to keep establishing upgrades. The long and short of it is, it would be great to have our A team at Mt  Hood this summer to really work on skills and bond as a team. Hood is an awesome time and we are going to have a great staff to work with you guys.
All our videos of training from last week is on Sprongo, if you have chance to see it I spent a lot of time downloading and I think you guys will get a lot of value viewing of it. I’m looking forward to Eastern Championships this weekend and enjoying our last month on snow!

Happy trails,
