This summer begins the 6th season of the Igor Legacy Camps. The focus goals of the three 2019 Igor Legacy Camps are to promote growth and development of youth-age cross country skiers and to provide exposure to the fundamental building blocks required for
successful cross-country skiing, as well
as summer training with teammates, and
meeting new Nordic friends.
Camp activities include an introduction to ski specific dry-land training, roller skiing, and cross training activities; such as agility and obstacle courses, pole hiking and bounding, and outdoor games.
* The age groups are guidelines, and have room for flexibility, depending on each participant's experience and fitness level.
Igor Badamshin was instrumental in developing senior and junior performance programs for CXC from 2008-2014; Igor helped many athletes and coaches gain experience and skills in the sport of cross country skiing; his love for skiing, coaching, youth development has left a legacy of success. The intention of each camp is to inspire and excite youth, in Igor Badamshin's honor because his positive and playful approach to coaching has touched and inspired skiers of all ages.

Igor Legacy Camp Coaches (Including "Parent Coaches", who are every bit as important to our camps' success as our certified US Ski & Snowboard Professional Coaches):
Safe Sport, Background Checks and the US Ski and Snowboard Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Program is something we as a group have to be aware of. As a partner of our NGB (US Ski and Snowboard), we have to comply with federal government safe sport guidelines. Athlete safety is important to CXC and an issue in the forefront nationally following the revelations of the Nasser abuse with minor gymnasts.
To participate in our camps as a coach (or volunteer parent coach), we need to have each of you background screened, Safe Sport trained and familiar with the US Ski and Snowboard Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Program. These steps are each handled by US Ski and Snowboard through their membership process. You will have 2 options in this regard - a volunteer membership or a coaching membership. Which membership is appropriate for each of you is your choice. To sign up for a membership and start your training, please follow this link: https://my.ussa.org/membership/start
The US Ski and Snowboard training and background check will take some time, so please start on this as soon as practical. Once you have completed your training, please let Joe know and he will confirm your certification with the US Ski and Snowboard. Thank you for your understanding of this important need.
Interested parents and coaches should submit a letter of interest and short biography to Joe Haggenmiller, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp fees for parents and coaches are $150 per camp; U.S. Ski & Snowboard Level 100 & 200 coaches will be compensated with a coaching stipend. Parents and coaches will be assigned camp roles and responsibilities upon selection. If you are NOT selected to attend as a parent or coach, your credit card will be reimbursed for camp fees paid.
Three different Igor Legacy Igor Nordic ski camps, for youth U12 (ages 10-11) and U14 (ages 12-13) interested in the sport of cross country skiing. The age groups are guidelines and have room for flexibility.
Each camp will include similar focus points: athletic movements for balance, agility, strength, mobility, and power. Camp activities will include dryland training, roller skiing, pole trekking, hiking, soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, and much, much more. Activities may vary slightly at each camp due to the terrain and features at each venue. A detailed camp schedule and equipment list will be emailed to registered athletes two weeks prior to each camp start date.
Each camp will include six meals and snacks: two breakfasts, two lunches, and two suppers, and evening treats. Meals will be served indoors.
Participants will be assigned dorms; bedding is NOT supplied. If a room buddy is needed, CXC will help with arrangements.
All athletes will receive CXC swag, an Igor Legacy Camp T-shirt, and other skiing goodies.
