2013 MYSL Ski Swap

Thanks to all of our volunteers, sellers and buyers. We had a very successful event. Proceed checks are in the mail this week. See you next year.

This event is very popular and busy. People line up early. Most demand is for high school racing equipment. Those shopping for youth sized equipment (170 cm skis or size 38 boots and smaller) will be advanced in the line. Find a line monitor.

Youth Racing 101

This Sunday Nov 10th, Gear West and FinnSisu are hosting parent Informational clinics on Nordic equipment, clothing, waxing, skiwerx series, and training tips.  In partnership with MYSL, the clinics are intended to educate parents about xc ski racing for 9-13 year olds in advance of the MYSL ski swap and the kick-off of junior/youth xc ski racing programs.  Topics will include proper ski, boot and pole fitting, impo

Olson Kids USATF Adventure

Hi. This is Ben and Sarah Olson.  We have been involved in MYSL since the ages of three and four.  We love to nordic ski, and we also love to run, play soccer, hockey, and many other sports.   We are lucky because all of our cousins and some of our friends like the same sports as us, and we get to ski and run with them a lot. Every now and then we travel to a new place because of our sports, and we love it. 

Metro Nordic Youth Super Series (MNYSS)

*******OVERALL SERIES RESULTS******* are attached below. Also all race results.

We were not able to get names of participants in the MinneLoppet, so if your child did this as a second race in the series, let me know and I will prepare a certificate. And of course, let me know if there are any other corrections. Compiling the results was a bit more challenging than expected (too many different results formats), but now we know better for next year!

Certificates will be handed out on March 7th 2pm at the Wirth Chalet (MYSL Great Ski Together). Certificates and medals (for J3-J5 overall) will be handed out at Wirth on Mar 13th at noon up in the stadium (Midwest Junior Championships).

Congratulations to all of the racers!

Executive Director Makes the Rounds

Amy Cichanowski , the new Executive Director of the MYSL, took advantage of her first season (2005-06) to visit many of the MYSL clubs.

"It was definitely the highlight of my first year; seeing all of the kids and meeting the volunteer leaders and coaches that make our League possible. And it's also important that people know who I am," says Cichanowski.

Cichanowski, who had her husband, Marc, and 8 month old daughter, Ursula, in tow most of the time, journaled about her experience.

"I wanted to see how the different clubs are run and distill the best aspects and ideas into a toolbox for all clubs to use."
