Calling all NEXT Gen short track speed skaters (ages 10 to 18) who would like to take part in our final NEXT Gen Camp #3.

US Speedskating is excited to host the third edition of the NEXT Gen Camps series.  

US Speedskating is excited to host the third edition of the Next Gen Camps series. For the third camp, we will have Fei Yang, USS certified coach,former Chinese national short track team membe, World Cup medalist and Head Coach of Garden State Speedskating Club since 2019. We will also be joined by Rafal Kazanecki, Strength & Conditioning Coach, Fitness Director, and Personal Trainer at The Gym Maplewood in New Jersey! Finally, we will have National Team Coaches Wilma Boomstra giving us tips and technical advice for on-ice drills in pre-recorded videos.

Given the current COVID-19 situation and to mitigate the risks associated with hosting an in-person camp, we have decided to switch to a virtual platform. This is the safest and prudent way to still conduct the camp and provide quality coaching and education.


Ice session:

For those who currently have ice availabilities, ice drills pre-recorded videos will be provided. 

Sessions:

·      Fei Yang will host a live-zoom dryland session. BYOP - Bring your own pumpkin!

·      Rafal Kazanecki will host a live-zoom Strength & Conditioning session. Don’t forget to bring your witch broomstick! Mouahahahahahah.

Education:

We will have two (2) education webinars.

·      Social Media Discussion with Andrea DiCristoforo, USS Marketing Coordinator

·      Team Building Event with Sara Bowles,USS  Membership Coordinator and Andréa Do-Duc, USS Short Track Program Director.

We will have one (1) pre-recorded video to play after your dryland session.

·      Hip Stretching Post-Exercise with Fikre Wondafrash, USS Long Track Head Athletic Trainer.

This is an all-inclusive Next Gen camp, targeting athletes ages 10 and older. Please note that under normal circumstances, a Next Gen Camp is typically an in-person camp targeting short track speed skaters age 12-18 achieving certain time standards and is limited to approximately 20-25 skaters by invitation only. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have decided to open this year’s camps to more athletes.

USS membership is required. See link below.
