Summer Programs 
After taking a close look at what is being offered in summer programs this year I am recommending that everyone who is interested sign up for the Loppet Nordic Racing (LNR) Program at HYLAND PARK.  Skiers should sign up for the 3 day/week option which runs M/W/F.  Cost is $420 if you sign up before 4/15.  You will need to have a pair of combi roller skis.  I recommend the aluminum shaft Marwe skis that are sold by Finn-Sisu.
On Tuesday and Thursday mornings 7:30-9:00 am Coach Abery will be running a supplementary program for ISD 196 skiers  This will include a Roller Ski Strength Workout in the Eagan/Apple Valley Area and a distance run with poles. On Saturdays, Coach Abery and Mr. Parr will be running a long, Level 1-2 roller ski workout. Cost is $0 and hopefully everyone will get more than they pay for.
Loppet Nordic Racing-
Juniors Open House, March 3-4
Dear Athletes Loppet Nordic Racing will have Open House Training sessions for junior athletes ages 13-18 on Monday and Tuesday, March 3 and March 4 at Theodore Wirth Park. This is a good chance to meet LNR Head Coach Piotr Bednarski and get a feel for some of the training that we do. You can meet other LNR athletes and ask questions about spring, summer and fall training.  
We encourage you to bring your high school or jr high teammates with you- we'll have skiing for a few more weeks, might as well come out and enjoy it!
