Spotlight: Endurance United Juniors Program
June 26, 2014
Kicking off our summer tour, we visited the Endurance United juniors program Thursday morning (early, 6:30 am!) at Battle Creek. Head coach Kevin Brochman, along with assistants Kris Bourne and Sam Elfstrom, started the group off with a number of strength drills, including dips and lunges. The group's main focus for the day was double pole technique, which they worked on over the waterpark trails. Eventually the group split into an advanced group that went out for a long distance rollerski as the rest continued technique drills with coach Brochman.
