A couple of items to keep everyone up to date. There was a State Nordic Coaches Association meeting last night, and even though the new guidelines were discussed, nothing new came out of it, just understanding that the max number of teams at a meet is 3 and we will need to be using waves to help reduce the number of skiers on the course at one time, and there is still no word on Sections and/or State, which will still be a ways off from a decision. Please note that there will be changes to the guidelines, some may happen before the season starts, some may come after we have started practices.
There has been no new word on what is going to happen with activities with the increased numbers of COVID. If there is anything that does come out to us as coaches, I will pass it along to all of you.
Please remember that this is the start of the Ski Swap season and if you are in need of equipment that you are checking out the information below that was previously posted. The MYSL Ski Swap is this weekend, and myself and a few others will be working there, so if you need help looking for something, let me know and I will start looking before you get there.
Thanks and if there are any questions, please let me know,
Below is the information for both Ski Swaps in the area:
