Dryland training sessions for Ages 14 to 19 year old TUNA junior skiers will be held in Sugarhouse Park and various other venues TBA, beginning August 24th, 2020. Meet in Sugarhouse Park.
The training program is designed to help athletes have fun, stay fit, and prepare for the upcoming cross country ski season. Young skiers interested in joining the TUNA U14/U16/U18 Comp Team are strongly encouraged to participate. Training sessions are generally scheduled six days per week, meeting from 4:00 – 6:00pm Mon-Fri and 8:00am Saturday. Please consult the Comp Training Calendar for specific workout times and locations.
The Comp training schedule is designed specifically for full-time athletes with individualized training plans and workouts that fit into a larger training framework based on monthly training cycles, specific race preparation, and yearly training hour goals. Part-time athletes should discuss training goals and other obligations with the Head Coach to ensure that they are getting the most out of our specific and individually targeted training as well.
Athletes over the age of 19 interested in training competitively are encouraged to contact Steve Cook as well- there is a good chance this program could fit your training needs as well!
Young athletes are welcome to enter the program at any point in the fall. Kids joining our training groups later in the fall (mid-session) must contact coaches to obtain updated program information and training venue location.
TUNA plans to proceed with caution this year and will be following the county and state’s direction regarding COVID-19 safety.
Do not bring your child to the program session if your child:
- Is exhibiting any symptoms of the coronavirus. Symptoms range from mild to severe illness and may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus, including: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.
- Have been in close, sustained contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
- Athletes and staff should bring their own filled water bottle- water bottles with straws or tube-style nozzles will make drinking with a face covering easier and safer.
- Athletes and staff should bring a face covering that fully covers both mouth and nose. If an athlete doesn’t have a face covering, one should be provided to them and, if possible, be properly worn through the duration of training. No buffs in place of masks.
- Athletes and staff should come to the program location in clean clothes for each session.
- Staff should wear face coverings at all times.
- Athletes and staff should maintain a minimum of 6 feet of physical distancing at all times.
- Athletes and staff should disinfect all equipment prior to use, in between use, and once training has concluded.
Upon Finishing Training
- Athletes and staff should leave immediately after training and not linger, chat, or socialize in the area.
