posted Jan 3, 2021, 10:09 AM by Aaron Giannobile   [ updated Jan 6, 2021, 8:43 AM ]


I wanted to post up some info as we get ready to start the season on Monday


  • Skiers must wear a mask or buff/neck gaiter over their mouth and nose at all times.

  • Skiers must fill out their daily attendance form before attending any practice. 

  • Physical distance of 6ft required at all times

  • Look for your POD on day 1. Here are the tentative POD groups based on levels. This is subject to change as it’s hard to sort you all before meeting you!

    • IF YOUR NAME IS NOT IN THE POD LIST THEN YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED OR NOT ELIGIBLE TO COME TO PRACTICE. Remember, you need to register AND have a physical on file from the last 4 years. Skiers who are not registered will not be allowed to practice. Questions on registration should be directed to the school athletics office 952-988-4691.

NODIC INFO MEETING. This year we are going to do the parent info meeting a little differently. I am going to pre-record a video and walk through the slides with important information and links.  Then, I will be hosting a virtual Q & A session on Tuesday, Jan. 5th from 6:30-7:30pm. I will be sending out the link via Remind before the meeting so make sure to sign up, instructions are in the presentation. 

PRACTICE SCHEDULE for the week with times and locations. The workout plan for the week will be updated on the Training Schedule Document here.
