Equipment needs

Since this clinic is intended to be outdoors, bring your typical roller skiing equipment. See Clothing & Equipment for Roller Skiing . If your skier will attend but does not have roller skis, you may indicate this in the clinic registration below.

Also, have a pair of shoes to change into afterward!


Note: Since Margie is in MN for only a few days, the clinic will be conducted rain or shine. Indoor activities will take place if we are unable to conduct events outside.

Clinic registration

Coaches, please email me if you are attending, so we ensure enough Pancake Breakfast foods!
