IGOR LEGACY CAMPS / U12 & U14 (ages 10-13)




This summer begins the 8th season of the Igor Legacy Camps. The focuses and goals of the 2021 Igor Legacy Camps are to promote growth and development of youth-age cross country skiers, provide exposure to the fundamental building blocks required for successful cross-country skiing, introduce summer dryland ski training in a camp setting, 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.

Cost:
Depending on location, the cost to attend an Igor Legacy Camp is $165 per person (participant, parent, and/or coach); includes a 3% online processing fee, surcharge for state and local sales taxes, facility and lodging fee, six meals, coaching, camp T-shirt, and Nordic swag.

Volunteer Parents and Coaches:
- Volunteer parent "Coaches" will be capped at six (6) parents per camp, and parents must purchase a U.S. Ski & Snowboard Volunteer membership, which includes required background screening and safe sport training. (Background screening and safe sport training must be done prior to camp and can take 30 days or more.)

- Attending Club or Team Coaches must be certified U.S. Ski & Snowboard Level 100 or 200, and be limited to six (6) Club coaches per club.

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, joe.h@cxcskiing.org.

Camp fees for parent coachesÓ are the same fee as for athletes. U.S. Ski & Snowboard Level 100 & 200 coaches may have their attendance fees covered and possibly be compensated with a coaching stipend, depending upon camp budget. 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.

What:
Two 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.

Focus:
Each camp will include similar focus points: athletic movements for balance, agility, mobility, and power endurance. Camp activities usually 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.

Food:
Each camp will include six meals and snacks: two breakfasts, two lunches, and two suppers, and evening treats. Meals will be served in the best dinning options available given circumstances.

Lodging:
Both Igor camps will be housed in Dorm Rooms. Room sharing may be limited to family to mitigate COVID risks. If a ski buddy with a room close by is needed, CXC will help with arrangements.

Camp Swag:
All athletes will receive CXC swag, an Igor Legacy Camp T-shirt, and other skiing goodies.

Cancellation Policy:
(Effective 24 hours after registration): if you register before May 21st, you will be refunded except for a $75 administrative fee. If you sign up after May 21st, only 50% of your registration fee will be refunded. Unfortunately, if you cancel less than one week before your child starts camp, we will be unable to offer any refund and your registration fee will be counted as a tax-deductible donation.

* If you register before May 21st (during our early-bird pricing) and have a medical/injury reason that causes you to miss a camp, CXC will offer refund up to 1 week before camp with a doctor's note.

CXC DREAM CAMP / U14 (ages 12-13)

2020 Dream Camp


The goal of the Dream Camp is to bring together top U14 boys and girls to train and receive feedback, educational materials, while offering a glimpse at the bigger picture of Nordic ski racing. These collaborative camps provide a motivating environment for the athletes to positively push and improve together.

This camp will be run with Summer Camp COVID mitigation protocols adopted last summer, recognizing that it is unlikely all athletes will be fully vaccinated allowing a bubble with more freedom.

Based upon experience last year and that the 2020-21 Salomon CXC Youth Cup was not scored, this camp will be open to aspiring U14 CXC Youth Cup athletes from Year of Births of 2007 to 2009.

However, campers and their families should be cautious in signing up for the Dream Camp. This training camp will involve serious endurance training over 5 days of camp. Athletes will need ski boots, skate and classic roller skis/poles (a second pair of roller skis could be borrowed specifically for Dream Camp). Athletes should also be prepared to handle 2-3 training sessions per day that are 1+ hours, roller skiing challenges in both techniques, and still be stoked and smiling through 5 days of dryland ski specific training.

Prior highly positive experience with a CXC Igor Youth Camp that a camper did not want to leave on Sunday and was fired up the entire car ride home would be a good gauge of being ready to attend Dream Camp. It is not a positive experience for a camper to come to camp and be blown out the back of the group in every training session. Those families with questions about being able to handle 5 days of ski specific training are encouraged to look at an Igor Camp with 48 hours of fun and a wider array of abilities.

* Coaches interested in attending are also invited to apply to attend and coach at the camp. For questions, please contact the Camp Coordinator, Joe Haggenmiller.


DATES: July 14-18, 2021

LOCATION: Gogebic Community College in Ironwood, MI

* A detailed camp schedule and sign up for camp will follow once we are comfortable proceeding with plans for an in person training camp.

CAMP PRICE: the cost to attend a Dream Camp is $582 per person and includes coaching, food and lodging, and a 3% online processing fee. Space is limited based upon space available in the GCC Campus Housing with most athletes needing to be in single rooms. Camp payment in the amount of $565 can also be made by check and mailed to:

U16-U18 CAMPS (ages 14-17)

2020 Three-Day Camps


Now in its fifth summer the CXC U16-U18 Camps are designed to specifically meet the needs of athletes ages 14-17 who are newer to dry-land training and roller skiing. The goals of each CXC Junior Development 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 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 camps offer new roller skiers and summer skiing trainers a chance to obtain specific coaching that tailors to their developing needs. This model allows the newer summer training athletes to feel comfortable with other athletes at their level and to motivate their future skiing while training at a level appropriate to their needs.
