This afternoon we hosted a rollerski clinic at Hapgood Pond. Our SMST2 athletes each took a group of 5-6 younger skiers and hosted a technique station. Eric (above) helps a group master V1, Erika worked on V2, and Jessie gave pointers for V2 alternate. Sophie took a group of the youngest skiers and taught them how to rollerski for the very first time! Afterwards everyone jumped in Hapgood Pond for a swim and then we had a potluck cookout with all the athletes. A pretty nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
