Igor Legacy Camps This summer begins the 5th season of the Igor Legacy Camps in the Midwest thanks to the support of Central Cross Country Ski Association (CXC), Wisconsin Nordic Development Group (WNDG), the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation (ABSF), and several Midwest Nordic ski shops.

The focus goals of the four 2018 Igor Legacy Camps are to promote growth and development of junior cross country ski racers and to expose young athletes to the fundamental building blocks required for successful cross-country ski racing,
as well as summer training with teammates,
and meeting new Nordic friends.

Camp activities include an introduction to ski specific dry-land training, roller skiing, and cross training activities; such as agility and obstacle courses, pole hiking and bounding, and outdoor games.

* The age groups are guidelines, and have room for flexibility, depending on an athlete's experience and fitness level.

Igor Badamshin was instrumental in developing senior and junior performance programs for CXC from 2008-2014; Igor helped many athletes and coaches gain experience and skills in the sport of cross country skiing; his love for skiing, coaching, youth development has left a legacy of success. The intention of each camp is to inspire and excite youth, in Igor Badamshin's honor because his positive and playful approach to coaching has touched and inspired skiers of all ages.

U16 Camps (ages 14-15)


CXC U16 Camps Now in its third summer the CXC U16 camps are designed to specifically meet the needs of the U16 (ages 14-15) group athletes. The goals of each U16 Camp is to further promote the growth and development of junior cross country ski racers and expose young athletes to the building blocks required for high-level cross country ski racing. These camps will occur during and "shadow" the first three days of each of the longer camps, but be dialed back as appropriate for each participant.

Camp activities will include outdoor games, dry-land activities, roller skiing, and cross training activities. The intention of each camp is to inspire and excite youth to further pursue the next level of skiing following the experiences gained at the Igor Legacy Camps, and before joining the ranks of the CXC U18-U20 Camps.

The CXC U16 Camps offer 14-15 year-old skiers to integrate with older junior skiers at the U18-U20 Camps while obtaining specific coaching that tailors to their developing needs. This model allows the U16 age group to set their sights on older athletes to envision and motivate their future skiing while training at a level appropriate to their needs.

Athletes are welcome to attend one, two or all three camps. Those who are looking to make the most of their summer training are encouraged to attend all three camps, and work with their individual team/club coach between each camp.

Note: The age groups are guidelines, and have room for flexibility, depending on an athlete's experience and fitness level. The camp schedule includes overlapping camp dates with the CXC U18-U20 Camps and locations to accommodate families and teams with different age athletes.
