LNR Juniors Development Team

The LNR Devo Team is geared toward younger skiers and those participating in multiple sports. Devo team training is meant to closer to home and camps are shorter. Training for this group will be more varied than the Comp Team and often less ski specific.  

New this summer the Development Team will have 3 training locations. All Devo team members should pick the group closest to them. Summer training starts June 15, has a lighter schedule for the week of July 4th, and will include 3-day or 5-day options.

Loppet Nordic Racing summer training goals

  1. To keep training varied, challenging, and having the opportunity to explore new places
  2. To make sure training in spring and summer is focused on making you a better all around athlete: coordination, speed, and running/movement mechanics
  3. To make sure that the environment at LNR is one that stresses being a good person, not just a good athlete.  We will focus on working well in a group and members are expected to participate in a number of volunteer projects throughout the year.
