The Central Cross Country Ski Association (CXC) is pleased to announce the expansion of its Athlete Development Program. Beginning in the spring of 2011, CXC will be offering full support to America's top junior skiers through the addition of an Elite Development Team. Those selected juniors for the Elite Development Team will train side-by-side with CXC's top senior athletes throughout the year at camps held around the United States, and will continue to work with their local clubs and coaches during the time between camps. The ultimate goal is to merge our senior and junior programs, excelling in development while maintaining the highest level of racing excellence. The programs will be coached by CXC Team coach Jason Cork, coach Gus Kaeding, and Junior Development coach Igor Badamshin.
