Last Monday and Tuesday CXC Skiing provided learning opportunities for high school, college, and master/citizen skiers in the Madison, WI area.
Andre Watt conducted a two day clinic for skate and classic techniques with dry land and rollerski drills as well as answering questions about training and cross country ski equipment.
Monday Skate Clinic
“I was very excited to see the enthusiasm and energy that the Madison community dedicates to cross country skiing through the Madison Nordic Ski Club and the Blackhawk Ski Club. People are eager to learn and participate in all sorts of events. That is exactly what drives and develops our sport,” commented Andre after the clinics.
Tuesday Classic Clinic
Andre is a full time member of the CXC Ski Team and will represent the Central region at National and International competitions.
“It was interesting, fun and informative. I learned to become more active with my double pole. The dryland drills were new techniques for me. Five stars!” said Rob Lucas, master skier who attended both clinics.
Over 30 participants attended these clinics in the Madison area. They all left with good impressions about CXC Skiing programs and services.
