Now that we are finally starting to get meets in, I want to make sure that everyone is aware of the policy that the State Nordic Coaches Association is adopting in regards to wax and when you can use higher end waxes. I am adding a link that will give you more detail, but the basics of it is that there are no Fluorinated waxes (LF and HF waxes included) used during the regular season meets, which includes the Mesabi Invite and the ABC Relay's. We will be able to use the LF, HF, Pure (100%) Fluoro Block's and Liquids at the Conference, Section, and State Meets, but there is a complete ban on 100% Powder's.
For some, this probably sounds foreign and you have no clue what it means for your skier, but if you do not wax, or skier does not wax at home, then you do not have to worry on this, we will be helping them make sure they use the right wax. For those do wax at home, please honor this policy. We know there are other skiers/teams that will and that there is no way to detect if someone is or not, but we want to set a precedent and we will follow the rules.
If there are any questions, please let me know
