New members sought for Telemark ski team

Telemark Junior Racers team is holding an open house on Tuesday evening

The Telemark cross country ski team has put the call for new members to join their competitive racing program.

The Telemark Junior Racers team is holding an open house for athletes who want to check out the sport, on Tuesday, Oct. 6 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Kinsmen Field House.

Athletes and coaches from the club will be on hand to discuss the sport and answer any questions.

“We are hoping to add a few athletes to our racing team this season,” says head coach Adam Elliot. “Cross-country skiing is a great winter sport.  It’s a lot of fun, we can teach you how to ski fast and you will get very fit.”

Elliot explains that cross country skiing is a great sport in itself, with lots of year round training opportunities, and also works as excellent cross training for summer sports.

“We have summer swimmers, triathletes, bike racers and runners who ski with us,” says Elliot, who was a competitive bike racer himself.

“And bring your whole family,” adds racer parent Jill Williams. “There are ski league programs for kids aged three and up, adult lessons are available and if you’d rather just rent snowshoes and go for a hike, you can do that too.”

Join the Telemark Racers Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 970 Gordon Drive, Mission Sports Field behind H20.
