A quick update on Summer Training

Posted by Andover Nordic at May 10, 2020 8:56AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Skiers and Parents,

A quick update with summer training, we are waiting on the governor, the school district, and the state high school league to give us the okay to hold any sort of in-person practices. Until we hear from them we can’t say anything for sure. We are hoping that we will be able to hold practices as usual, but we are currently making plans for what we can do if this is not the case.
We will be contacting the captains in the next few days regarding what they and their team can do. We will also looking into options for setting up a way for the athletes to connect with us regarding their training (using a fitness app or spreadsheet).

A reminder that until the stay at home order is removed, athletes should not gather for any form of practice. After the order is lifted, captains practices may be possible, provided social distancing is maintained.

Coach Drew
