MAST Update Week Two
Sunday, November 19, 2023
Good Evening MAST Families:
We had a very good first week of dry-land training. Under the lights in the stadium on field turf is an awesome venue for running, cutting, jumping, leaping, striding and hurdling. The athletes put forth great effort. It was fun to watch you improve your footwork and movement patterns. Thank you for giving us your best effort. And on Saturday, we had a great turnout for both retreat sessions. We shared a lot of information and you were terrific participants. Hopefully you found the sessions useful. A big thank you to the coaches for your good work and to all the athletes for your attention and participation.
Dry-land Training Continues Monday and Tuesday.
4:30-6PM at Washburn Stadium. Temps will be cooler so no more shorts. Bring hat, gloves and jacket. Once the sun goes down it will get cold quickly.
Apparel IS Ready For Pick UP!!!
When: Monday and Tuesday at the conclusion of practice (6PM).
Where: Look for the off-white Suburban on the East side of the parking lot off 49th Street.
If you are out of town on Monday and Tuesday, you will be able to pick up your apparel the week after Thanksgiving. Details to come.
Giants Ridge Camp
We have 57 athletes registered for camp. If you are planning on attending, please register sooner than later. Registration will close on or before December 1, depending on numbers.

Supplemental Training #1: Saturday, December 2, 2:30-10:30PM.
Once we know with certainty that Wild Mt will be open for us to train on December 2nd at Wild, I will send out a link to register. Watch for an email later this week or in the Week Three Update.
Sunday, December 3, 7PM: Parent Race Worker Training Webinar
Please set this time aside so we can beef up our race day volunteer corp. Attached is a document detailing all the race worker and race official positions with job descriptions. As you can see, it takes A LOT of race workers to hold a WELL RUN race. Do not be intimated by the job descriptions or your lack of experience with ski racing. We will train you. Race workers have a great view of the action and some are right in the middle of the athletes as they prepare for their race runs and cheer on their teammates.
Sunday, December 10, 4-7PM: Parent Social at Dual Citizen Brewery
Save the Date. Details to come.
Since Hyland will not be opening this week, you will have five days off over Thanksgiving break. Sometime on Tuesday I will send you some "homework" to get you ready for getting on snow... I promise it will be fun. I would also strongly encourage you to continue working out over break. Give your body at least thirty minutes of continuous exercise four of the five days: run, hill climbs, bike, circuits.
We have some colder temperature moving in. As soon as Hyland opens, we will ski. I look forward to seeing you on Monday and Tuesday at dry-land.
