DRY LAND TRAINING INFORMATION & SCHEDULE
SWATeam's fall ski racing conditioning program. For liability reasons, ALL ATHLETES who participate in ANY training program offered by SWATeam Racing, Inc., must have a registration form completed and signed by their parent or guardian. A $50.00 fee for Dry Land training is to accompany the registration form. The $50.00 will be applied toward the total membership fee for the 2011-12 team dues. Therefore, a 'DRY LAND REGISTRATION' form will be emailed to all members or new members. Parents/Guardians need to complete the form and sign it, enclose a check for $50 made out to SWATeam Racing and mail it to SWATeam Racing office before the training begins. OR bring all the paperwork & check to the first dry land training session that your athlete attends and give it to your coach. PLEASE place everything in an envelope with your childs or family name on it so the coaches are not stuffing paperwork into their pockets! They will appreciate that VERY MUCH!
