Kids of all ages can attend the fitness testing. Purpose is to benchmark and track your own fitness improvement during summer and fall. Coaches can also check for imbalances and weaknesses in the racer’s bodies that can be worked upon during the summer. There is no cost and all kids are invited. U12, U14, U16 and FIS participants should make this particular testing an essential part of their training, as it will set the baseline for your fitness development during this season.

Please make sure you come properly dressed and bring water and healthy snacks.
