The Roller Skiing training is best suited to Middle School and High School Nordic athletes that are comfortable Nordic skiing and have a foundation of intermediate level Nordic skills. TVSEF has a limited number of roller skis. If an athlete has their own pair of roller skis, we encourage them to bring and use them.
