We will have practice on both Saturday Dec 15th and Sunday 16th beginning at 9:15 AM. These practices will be GS based and will be held on either Imperial or Continental. Conditions permitting, we will set a start and finish station to review starting and finishing a race. We will begin skills training if there if sufficient snow. If conditions permit, we may set up either a stubby course or corridor drill. Those planning to practice should meet the coaches outside old Glaciers. The practice will run until 12:00 Noon.
The Parents meeting and pizza party is scheduled for Saturday, December 15th. The parents meeting will start at 3:00 PM and the pizza party at 4:00 PM. Both events will occur in the Avalanche Room. Along with club updates, we expect to talk about racing, competition rules, and concussions. We encourage parents to attend this opportunity to hear firsthand about the club efforts and meet with the HVRC family.
