Juniors Off Season Training

Off-season Training

Madnorski Rollerski Programs are geared for both beginner and experienced skiers and focus on developing skills, fitness training, strength, and exploring Madison area trails. Skiers will be in small pod groups with one to two coaches. If you don’t own a pair of rollerskis, it is not a problem. The club has rollerskis available to rent. If you have your own skate or combi boots this is very helpful and we encourage all skiers to purchase boots with NNN bindings. (The team rollerskis primarily use NNN bindings.) Participants must be a Madnorski member either through a student membership or a family membership.  Our membership year is from July 1 through June 30.  

Spring 2024 Rollerski Program

A 6-week progressive program focusing balance, agility, fitness and technique. Skiers will use skate rollerskis. This program is for beginner or experienced rollerskiers. Skiers will need to pick up any rental equipment on Monday evening April 17 for the spring session. Note that the Madnorski equipment uses NNN bindings primarily. Details will be emailed to participants.

Summer 2024 Training– Rollerskiing, Dryland & Functional Strength Training

An 8-week progressive program. All participants will use both skate and classic rollerskis. On Tuesday mornings we will be offer a functional weight training program with personal training and instruction. Functional strength training helps your body move better and improves stability, flexibility, and functional movement patterns. Coaches will assign a second shorter “at home” weight training plan each week. In addition to rollerskiing, every other Monday evening practices will be hill bounding and ski specific drills at Elver Park. Rollerskis may be rented from Madnorski. Skiers will need to pick up any rental equipment on Wednesday evening, June 12 for the summer session. Details will be emailed to participants.
