Ski Team 2021-2022

Welcome to the ski team blog! We are looking forward to the 2021-2022 season and hoping for lots of snow.

Practice will begin on Monday, November 29 after school and will be dryland training (running, hill bounding, roller skiing, etc.) until we have snow on the ground.

Everyone should keep an eye on this blog as the season ramps up, as this will be the go to place for all ski information. Day of changes will be emailed to parents and communicated to students at school, but for the regular schedule of what's happening, this is where all info will be found.

Think snow!

Reminder to stay after school Tuesday, March 30

Reminding everyone that we are having our final ski team gathering tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon. All skiers should plan on being there and parents are welcome!

If you are currently on the track team, on Tuesday you should come to the ski team event, not track. The track coach knows to expect this.

See you all tomorrow!

End of season gathering AND videos

The date has been set for the end of season ski team gathering. It will be next Tuesday, March 30 right after school and should be finished by 3:30. It will take place outside and parents are welcome to attend. It will primarily be a recap of the season and an opportunity to thank everyone who helped make this season happen.

Also, Keith took video at a number of races this year. The folder with these videos can be found HERE.

Rescheduling needed for end of season gathering

The ski team was hoping to get together this coming Tuesday, March 16, for a final team gathering, which unfortunately needs to be postponed for a week or two as something has come up and John Tarling will not be able to be there. While we don’t want to drag out the ski season finale too long, we really do want John to be there, so we hope that by pushing back a week or so will make this workable for all. Once we have a new date, we will notify ski families of the new plans.

In the meantime, skiers should wash their race suits and return them to Susan at school.

End of Season

This is a sad post, because though it feels like the ski season only recently really kicked into gear, the end came quickly. Today was a spectacular day in Fryeburg and both the boys and girls teams came in 2nd - awesome work by all the skiers and coaches!

There will be no more after school practices, but we are working on putting together a final team gathering, likely Tuesday, March 16 right after school - please save this date. We will post more info about this shortly. Also, Pineland passes are still valid, so everyone is encouraged to get out and ski as long as Pineland remains open.

For now, a big congrats to the entire team and an enormous thank you to all the parents for all their support, driving, and flexibility this season and to John and Keith for captaining this ship in a challenging year!
