Hudson, Wisconsin -- When two of the high-school athletes Corey Coogan coaches began looking for a college with Nordic skiing, she was reminded how difficult the college search is for dedicated Nordic skiers. Because they cannot consult guidebooks like Peterson's, skier's attempts to locate college ski teams are haphazard. In addition, athletes and their parents are forced to navigate the unfamiliar world of NCAA eligibility, recruiting, and athletic scholarships. In response to this problem, Coogan has written the book: One Week in March: A Manual for Prospective Collegiate Nordic Skiers.

One Week in March is designed to meet the needs of a variety of skiers, from recreational ones to U.S. Ski Team hopefuls. It leads athletes and their parents step-by-step through the process of choosing a school and ski team. The book includes information on making initial contact with the schools' head coaches, visiting the schools and teams, seeking athletic scholarships, and registering with NCAA. Readers find contact information for EVERY collegiate Nordic ski team or club in the United States, as well in in-depth profiles of the nation's top programs. Coverage of the 2001 NCAA and USCSA Championships, articles on European skiers competing in NCAA and Title IX's effect on collegiate Nordic skiing round out One Week in March. This self-published 75-page manual, complete with pictures, should be available for purchase by shops and individuals by November 1, 2001.

Corey Coogan is Head Coach of the Nordic Ski Team at the Convent of the Visitation School in Mendota Heights, Minnesota. As a former Maine State Champion for Fryeburg Academy high school, and graduate of Gould Academy, Coogan's own college search brought her to St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. There she earned a B.A. in English in 1999. A devoted racer, she competes for Alpina/Madshus Racing, Finn Sisu ski shop, and Gear West Ski, Bike, and Run shop.
