The 3rd Annual National J2 Talent Camp is set to kick off Saturday, August 4 in Vermont at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. The camp will provide a great opportunity for many of the nation’s top 14-15 year old nordic racers listed here (who qualified on results from the 2012 USSA Junior Cross Country Ski Championships) to train together, and learn from USST staff and top club coaches.
The collaboration from regional coaches along with substantial support from USSA, and $4500 in support from the National Nordic Foundation (NNF) have enabled this camp to continue and to grow. NNF’s strategic investment offsets many camp costs and ensures some of the top coaches in the country will be guiding these young athletes. In addition to the J2 training camp there will be a USSA L100/NENSA L1 coaches clinic on Friday August 10th at the Outdoor Center. Coaches interested in participating should contact Janice Sibilia at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Athletes will have an opportunity to try out some of the same workouts that the Eastern REG campers recently participated in, such as the strength assessment, rollerski agility and uphill run.
