Getting a coat of summer storage wax on your skis is a crucial component of ski care and is something you must do to protect your bases. To help people get this job done, 3GNordic is hosting a Summer Storage Wax Party!
On Saturday, March 24th, Come to Minnehaha Academy’s North Campus (3100 West River Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55406) and park in the lot on the east side of the building. We’ll have signs under the clock tower directing you towards the wax room. We will provide all of the wax and equipment you need and will help you with the waxing if you would like. There is no cost to you, we just want to meet you! Come any time between 1 and 4 p.m.
We are hosting this waxing party as an alternative form of “Info Session”. If you are at all thinking about doing a summer ski training program this summer, this is your best chance to come meet the 3G Coaches, ask some questions, and learn whether we’re a good fit for you. All the while, getting your skis safely put away for the summer!
If you have friends you think would like to get their skis done, invite them! If you are a coach and think your athletes might benefit from this, please invite them too! Bring your parents, bring your siblings, bring your coach, EVERYONE is welcome.
If you are likely to be coming, an RSVP via email would be helpful so we can be sure to purchase enough wax. Please email email@example.com if you are planning to attend. If you decide to join us last minute and haven’t RSVP’d, that’s okay too, we would still like you to come!
See you the afternoon of the 24th!
Alissa at Mesabi
3G Athlete, Alissa Johnson, just wrapped up her Junior season at Minnetonka High School and is the first skier to be featured in our new series of Athlete Profiles. Alissa started skiing regularly in middle school, started racing her freshman year, and last summer made it her main goal to compete in the 2012 state meet.
To help work towards this goal, she bought her first set of rollerskis and joined 3G’s full-time summer program, training with us 3 days a week. Last fall, she learned to row and competed with Twin Cities Youth Rowing during the week and also rollerskied with 3G on Sunday afternoons. Her hard work paid off, and after placing 31st in the 2011 Section Meet, she placed 15th in 2012 and qualified for state! When asked about her summer training, Alissa said, “3G was probably one of the best experiences of my summer – every day was a different adventure! The coaching staff was friendly and approachable and I felt challenged, both physically and mentally.”
When not diligently training, Alissa does some coaching herself! She is a volunteer for Nellie Stone Johnson Community School in Minneapolis, helping pass her skiing knowledge on to their enthusiastic kids. What a lucky team!
We’re excited to have Alissa back with us next summer as she sets her goals higher for her senior year and continues to work hard.
