OMST 2.2_2.3 and USASA BX events at Stratton
Our boardercross athletes will have their second and final set of USASA BX competitions this weekend at Stratton on Saturday, 2/2 and Sunday, 2/3. If your child is competing, please make sure you pre-register your child for both events asap via www.usasa.org. Athletes should plan on meeting coaches in the west wing of the Stratton Base Lodge at 7:30am on both days. Please make sure that your child's board receives an edge sharpen and weather appropriate hot wax prior to the events. The Totem Pole in Ludlow offers excellent tuning services.
Friday BX training with OMS will also be an option for our weekend athletes at Stratton. This is a great opportunity for your child to receive some extra training on the course prior to the event. Training will be from 8:30am-1pm and is $75 through the Competition Center. Discounted training tickets at Stratton are $40 with proof of a USASA membership. *If your child is enrolled in the full five day OMS camp this week, there is no cost for additional training or training tickets- proof of a USASA membership is still needed. If your child is participating in four or less days at the camp, there is no training fee but you will have to purchase the $40 training lift ticket. Transportation to and from is provided for all campers.
For OMST athletes who will not be competing, training will be as usual at Okemo from 8am-1:30pm. A heavy dose of park and pipe training will be our focus for the weekend.
If anyone has any questions on anything, please let me know.
