About Junior Fall Training

The training ramps up in intensity just as the school year starts up in Vermont. It’s Fall Training!

You’ve had an incredible summer of fun workouts, long adventures in the mountains and a base of fitness and speed. Now it’s time to take that work to the next level and prepare for the season ahead with harder sessions, continued volume and race simulations. After the bliss of summer the harder workouts always coincide with darker and colder days…can you think of a better way to get tough for the biggest races of the season?

Fall Competition Team

MNC offers a full 5-day/week competition training program preparing athletes for success at the high school, Eastern Cup, Regional (U16, EHS Championship) and Junior National levels.

Sessions take place at the Range and various locations around the county with intervals, timetrials, and distance training designed to build toward great races when the snow flies.

Combine the Fall Competition Team training with continued strength training at Dee PT in South Burlington for a complete professional training option. During fall strength training we will focus on increasing muscular capacity before working toward speed and power movement. It’s time to put some bend in those carbon poles!

Fall 1-day and 2-day Training

Many skiers wish to augment their fall sport with 1-2 ski sessions each week. For those athletes 1-day/week or 2-day/week Training options allow for flexible participation in MNC training.

Train with MNC on any 1 day or any 2 days that fits your schedule during your fall season. Once running season ends, you will have FULL access to all MNC training 5-Days per week.

For those training fall sports, MNC sessions will be focused on continuing to maintain and build upper body and ski-specific rollerski gains made over the summer.

Fall Strength Training

Our strength training on Wednesday nights has become extremely popular with the Junior athletes. MNC is excited to offer a continuation of this program into the fall months!

Mansfield Nordic has been fortunate to develop a relationship with local PT clinic Dee PT  in South Burlington.  As a resource for experience and knowledge in the fields of weight-training, injury prevention and fitness gains, this relationship is a great opportunity for MNC Juniors.

On Wednesday evenings, from 6:00-7:15PM, Head Coach Adam Terko will lead group training in the well-equipped indoor facility at Dee PT on Dorset Street in South Burlington. With a later start time, this is an excellent opportunity for HS sport athletes to supplement their fall seasons with great strength training for the ski season!

The facility will be closed to the public and the Mansfield Nordic training group will have exclusive access. Adam will work with athletes to identify goals for strength improvement, and develop progressive programs to make these gains with consistent high-level training.
