Training has returned to Chatham!

Regional Race Training will continue at Chatham on Saturday mornings (9-11am) throughout the summer.

We are now using to pre-book for each training session so that we will be aware of numbers and also so that we can notify registered racers of any changes to the schedule.

Please register now so that you will be notified if any sessions are affected by the various summer race events in southeast, or due to low numbers having booked for a particular week.

We're delighted that, thanks to the new surface, regional training has returned to Chatham Ski & Snowboard Centre.

Training is switching to Saturday morning between 9 and 11am. Sessions are open to racers of all levels, with coaching provided by Jim Gibb, Emily Evans 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, and 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!
