Nancy Greene Ski League

Happy Fall to all our returning and future Nancy Greene families. Registration opens Saturday, September 16th @ 8am, with a cap on 80 athletes. You can register on our website, no sooner than the 16th – There will be a Parent Info Session with all the important information about how our program runs, what your child needs and what a typical day looks like. This will answer all of your burning questions and allow an opportunity to connect and chat with coaches and other families. Details coming soon.
We are looking for parents to volunteer for the NG Working Group. These members work alongside our program Lead Coach/Coordinator to create a fantastic program for our racers.  Also, we are looking for coaches! There is an Entry Level Coaching Certification Course early season plus mentoring and on-snow sessions during our 10 week season. If you are interested in either of these please reach out to Pippa or any of the current WG members.

Village Ski Hut Offer

Hi everyone!
It’s that time of year (If you haven’t placed orders already) to think about and order your race gear for the upcoming season.
We are happy and excited to support both Whitewater and Red Mountain teams, and have pre-booked a selection of race equipment and protection for this upcoming season. It’s been almost impossible over the past years to order gear “in-season” meaning any time after Sept.1 depending on the brand.
I have contacted all my race dealers and have created a system to try and make this process easier for parents.

Two of our FIS athletes attended a training camp this summer in Chile, Marcus Hamm and Marek Krampl. Here is a quick recap.

The Chile training camp was really good. We got some very good gs training over the 3 weeks. We had a storm come in during the second week which dumped 3 meters of snow. Overall the camp had lots of good training, very pretty sunsets and sunrises, dogs that would hangout at the top of our training course, and lots of cool people (attached is a photo of one of our team mates from the camp with Valerie Grenier).
