More track attacking and APJActive Sunday

Hello!

Back at Wildewood trails like last week, Sunday 1:30.

It won’t be crazy cold so don’t overdress the hands as we’ll be going a bit faster than usual and for sure bring a water bottle of some kind,

This time we’re going to focus on skate technique,

Track Attack skiing CLASSIC at Wildewood Sunday Nov. 21, 1:30

Hello Track Attackers,

I’ll be at Wildewood for classic ski “retraining”. It’s been groomed and the snow should be an easy grip! Bring a water bottle as well.

Head for the corner of Oakenwald and North Drive, close to the Wildwood Park Community Centre, with on street parking.

See you there!

APJ will not be hosting sessions for skiers of ages under 12

Hello All,

Due to the persistence of our current pandemic situation, I hate to announce that

  • APJ won’t be hosting sessions for skiers of ages under 12 and
  • all others must be fully vaccinated (proof of 2 vaccination treatments) against COVID 19. 

The request for vaccinations is concurrent with the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba (CCSAM) COVID-19 Vaccination Policy of November 10, 2021.  This Policy is intended to encourage, support and maximize Covid-19 vaccination rates and protect the health of all participants at CCSAM events this season. 

From <https://www.ccsam.ca/covid-19-vaccination-policy-event-attendance-participation/>

As such, APJ will be hosting Track Attack level ski training only and, sadly, has decided to not host Jackrabbit or Bunnyrabbit level sessions for the foreseeable future.  This decision was made to ensure that coaches and skiers remain healthy and do not pass on unwelcome illness to their own families and fellow students and coworkers. 

If the COVID-19 Situation improves in the new year, APJ will reassess and communicate out at that time,

Thank you for your understanding,

Ihor Barwinsky
