LNR Juniors

Development Team


The goal of the LNR Development (DEVO) Team is to offer quality, instructional ski training for middle school and high school aged skiers. The Development Team is our former 3 day program and is still intended for skiers wishing to train 3 days a week with us in the summer. The 3 day a week plan allows skiers to participate in another program like summer running or a HS based ski program.

Year Round Devo Team

The annual year round cost of the LNR Devo Team is $3,800. Although the fees are substantial, they include four out of town training camps, spring, summer, fall and winter training sessions, as well as training plans, lactate testing, and race support.The team fee can be paid in full or paid in installments of $950.

2021 LNR Juniors Devo and Comp Year Round
2021 Spring/Summer Programs and Camps
2021 Fall/Winter Programs and Camps
  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.

Athletes must be enrolled in Summer LNR (Comp or Devo) in order to attend camps.  We do make exceptions if there is room and if the athlete is sufficiently prepared.  Please contact Piotr at bednarski@loppet.org for all Devo team questions. Please contact Chris Harvey at harvey@loppet.org for all Comp team questions.
