The Ski With Annika Too (SWAT) program is designed for intermediate and advanced skiers who want to improve their fitness and ski technique in both classic and skating styles in a group atmosphere. Training with like minded skiers, focused on improving their skiing will help create fun, motivating and encouraging training sessions. The program will provide participants with personalized coaching through a focus on technique within a small group supported by some video feedback. Details for ‘on your own’ training to complement the program will also be available for those interested.
Some of the sessions will include a variety of fun race formats for the group to work on race preparation and improving performance.
Annika Hicks is the lead coach for this program. She is a former high performance cross country skier, having represented Canada on the World stage at the World Junior/U23 World Championships and in World Cups. While not quite a Master skier, Annika does know a fair bit about skiing. No longer a racer, she still enjoys getting after it on the race course… and really enjoys, in most cases, beating Alaric to the finish line!!!
If the weather is frighteningly cold (-15 and windy), sessions will be cancelled. A good quality headlamp is strongly recommended as the group will occasionally venture off the night loop.
