CXC FITNESS TESTING CAMP (ages 14-19)


CXC Fitness Testing Camp

This camp focuses on fitness testing and individual technique work on the Roller Ski Treadmill in Madison, WI.

The roller skiing sessions on the treadmill will provide opportunities for technique breakthroughs and provide athletes good technique cues to work on throughout their summer and fall training.

The VO2 Max testing component of the camp offers an opportunity for athletes to understand their current fitness level, develop a baseline for future analysis, update training zones and gain knowledge that will help better execute a quality summer training plan.

NOTE: This "camp" is not a great fit for beginner roller skiers. The roller ski treadmill can be an intimidating adjustment for seasoned rollerskiers, and is not the place to start your roller skiing career. It is recommended that those signing up for this camp have at least one dry-land season of experience roller skiing in both the Freestyle and Classic techniques.

DATES: May 2-5, 2019 / CXC Center of Excellence, Madison (WI)

FORMAT: sessions will run as one-on-one sessions in the lab, no organized group activities. Each athlete will be scheduled for 3 flexible 1 hour blocks. The three ~1 hour sessions will proceed in the following order:

1. a VO Max Test
2. RS treadmill session (technique of choice)
3. RS treadmill session (other technique).

For optimal sessions, adequate recovery is needed. Athletes should not schedule more than 2 sessions back to back.

U16-U18 THREE-DAY CAMPS (ages 14-17)


CXC U16 Camps Now in its fourth summer the CXC U16-U18 Three-Day Camps are designed to specifically meet the needs of athletes ages 14-17 who are newer to dryland training and roller skiing.

The goals of each CXC Three-Day Camp is to further promote the growth and development of junior cross country ski racers and expose young athletes to the building blocks required for successful cross country ski racing.

These camps will occur during and "shadow" the first three days of each of the longer camps, but be dialed back as appropriate for each participant.

Camp activities will include outdoor games, dry-land activities, roller skiing, and cross training activities. The intention of each camp is to inspire and excite skiers to further pursue the next level of skiing following the experiences gained at the Igor Legacy Camps, and before joining the ranks of the CXC U16-U18-U20 Camps.

The CXC Three-Day Camps offer new roller skiers and summer skiing trainers a chance to integrate with other junior skiers at the CXC U16-U18-U20 Camps while obtaining specific coaching that tailors to their developing needs. This model allows the newer summer training athletes to set their sights on older athletes to envision and motivate their future skiing while training at a level appropriate to their needs.

Athletes are welcome to attend one, two or all three camps. Those who are looking to make the most of their summer training are encouraged to attend all three camps, and work with their individual team/club coach between each camp.

Note: The age groups are guidelines, and have room for flexibility, depending on an athlete's experience and fitness level. The camp schedule includes overlapping camp dates with the CXC U16-U18-U20 Camps and locations to accommodate families and teams with different age athletes.
