Practices - Dryland Training/Ski Season

Team Practices:

Dryland Training: Runs each Sunday from 10am-noon, beginning mid-October

Optional evening sessions are also available as per coach availability.

Location: Cold Lake High School, Energy Centre (subject to revision)


Dryland consists of strength, endurance, and coordination training.  This takes place through a variety of different activities such as circuit training, relay racing, and aerobics.  Other activities include playing games such as dodge ball, floor hockey, soccer, and more…

Dryland Training helps to develop a sense of team spirit and provides the racers with opportunity to meet before the snow falls.  Parents can also utilize this time to become familiar with the club, ask specific questions, become educated on certain topics such as equipment maintenance, as well as obtain the Level 1 Officials Course, recommended for all volunteers.
