The Loon Race Team is committed to creating a learning environment in which athletes can explore their true potential. LRT is a skiing community, in which the membership is committed to the process of developing athletes' self-understanding through the process of performing on the field of play, while participating within the team framework. Plainly said - we like to go fast, have fun and be nice!

2014/2015 Advantage LRT Friday Training Program
This season we are happy to announce a new training option for our U12 and older athletes. Starting December 19th , 2014 we will have full day training available for our athletes at Loon starting at 9:00am. The Advantage LRT program will be run in conjunction with our existing U12/14/16 curriculum and is designed to give our weekend athletes and extra day of training each week to help them achieve their athletic goals. There is no substitute for time on snow and our intent is to give our athletes as many options as possible to get quality training opportunities. This program will dovetail with the existing Friday evening Kanc SL training already available to LRT athletes.
Athletes may take advantage of the full day or come in for a half day as well. Any additional time on snow is beneficial, so take advantage of this opportunity whenever possible! There are many benefits to take advantage of with this program, including rapid turnaround on the lifts and lower coach: athlete ratios. During the competition phase of the season we will always train the discipline that athletes will race on that weekend, giving them an extra advantage to prepare for the races. Additionally, the extra volume provided for the kids will greatly enhance their development throughout the season. There is no substitute for time on snow.
This program will be coordinated and coached by LRT Head U12 Coach Trevor Hamilton and additional staff as needed. We are hopeful that LRT families will be able to take advantage of this terrific new opportunity to get some extra training this winter.
Contact Trevor at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding this program. Parents should plan to RSVP by Weds each week to allow for proper planning of Fridays training.
