Training

Regional Race Training is held at Chatham on Saturday mornings (9-11am).

Due to Covid we are limited in the numbers that can be accommodated, and training is only open to members of Bromley, Bowles, Chatham and Folkestone. If you wish to attend please contact Andy Atkinson (regional coach) for more information.

Training held at Chatham on Saturday mornings between 9 and 11am. Sessions are open to racers of all levels, with coaching provided by Jim Gibb, Emily Evans, Andy Atkinson and paralympic gold medalist Charlotte Evans, and are £17 per person.

Training covers technique, stubby poles and full size poles, and thanks to the new matting at Chatham we're now able to set more challenging courses and make full use of the varied terrain to ensure our racers get the most from the session.

The regional training sessions are open to all skiers, no club affiliation or membership is required. We cater for all skiing abilities, so if you want to try ski racing, but are unsure of your ability level, this is the perfect session to give it a go. Our coaches are very supportive of new trainees and will make sure you can progress at your own pace. If you are still unsure, why not come along to a session just to watch and then have a chat with the coaches afterwards.

Stay in touch!

Please join the LSERSA facebook group to get regular updates, and register on Teamer.net to let us know when you're intending to attend and be informed it for any reason training is cancelled.
