Snowsport Wales and Dragons Team Up in Holland

July 29, 2019

This week 32 athletes accompanied by 7 coaches and house mum are coming together for a joint Snowsport Wales and Dragons Alpine ski training camp at the massive 500m long indoor snow centre in Landgraaf, Holland. Athletes ranging in age from 8-18 will get 4 days of training each day, skiing for at least 4 hours every day. This annual camp has been running for at least 5 years now and has gone from strength to strength.

The focus on the camp differs for each athlete. For some this will be their first indoor snow camp where they will be making the best of the quick turn around of the chairlift system and taking up to 20 runs through gates in each session. For others at the more experienced range of the spectrum, they will be looking to sharpen their skills in preparation for upcoming indoor snow races this summer of autumn as well as making changes in performance for the winter ahead.
 
In addition to the training on the ski hill this camp also provides a great opportunity for strength & conditioning development. Delivering this part of the camp will be our S&C expert Josh Dragone with this year's focus being centred upon dynamic balancing, lateral movements, coordination and running up a million steps!
 
Finally, and certainly not least, our camp house mum and manager Georgina will be leading some team building work, bring out a few skill the athletes, coaches and parents never knew they had!
 
Look out for some posts on social media through the week, capturing the experiences of the team on and off the slopes.
