Summer Training Camp

Fonna, Norway | 21 - 28 Jul 2018

Kandahar Racing’s Summer training programme takes place on the Fonna Glacier in Norway, one of Europe’s top summer training locations where snow conditions remain fantastic throughout the summer months.  Our management team will provide trainees with the highest standards of professional ski race coaching, fitness training, pastoral care and fun over a 1 week period from 21-28 July 2018.

Training

The training programme will include technique, skills, drills, SL/GS/SG gate training and race simulation with electronic timing. The glacier is open for training from 9am until 4pm and so we can train full days, doubling the training time available compared to glaciers in the Alps.  The mountain have given us use of a SG track complete with a small jump for SG/DH training.  We will also have an increased focus on Ski Cross training with a Ski Cross track purpose built just for us.  Trainees will participate in a full fitness and activities programme every day and evenings will include ski prep, video analysis and classroom lessons on other aspects of ski racing and athletic development.  The programme caters for young skiers brand new to competitive snowsports, through to experienced athletes with national team aspirations.  Here’s a summary of last years camp to give you an idea of what to expect.

Staff

Matt Shepherd will be the manager for the duration of the camp and he’ll be supported on the coaching team by Sam Liddell, Robby Kelley, Eilidh McLeod, Dan Poth, TJ Baldwin, Charlotte Gould, Matt Thompson, Jake Richardson, Amanda Pirie & Mike Barker.  Pastoral care will be led by Nikki & Mick Jordan for the duration of the camp.

Format

To ensure that a progressive and structured training programme can be put in place, trainees must commit to attending the full 8 day duration of the camp.  There will also be 2 week or 3 week options starting on 07 July 2018 that will available by invite only for Team Kandahar athletes.

Accommodation & Costs

All inliers will be accommodated at the Folgefonn Gjestetun which is ideally located in the nearby town of Jondal and is a venue used regularly by many Scandinavian ski teams.  Inlyer costs are inclusive of full board accommodation, lift pass, activities, airport transfer and training fees.  They do not include flights or equipment hire.  Trainees must have their own equipment (skis, boots, poles & helmet) as Fonna does not have junior race equipment to rent.  Outlyer costs cover training fees only.  We recommend that trainees attend the camp as inliers wherever possible so they can benefit fully from the team atmosphere.
