USSA National J2 Talent Camp


Launched for the first time this summer, 40 of the best J2 boys & girls in the U.S. were invited to take part in a the USSA National J2 Talent Camp.  The following is a report with photos from U.S. Ski Team coach Bryan Fish.

Implementing something new can bring with it plenty of enthusiasm, but also some anxiety.  The thought of a National J2 Camp makes a great deal of sense on paper, with athletes at this age (14-15 years old) being in their developmental phase which allows them to adapt into top cross country skiers more rapidly.  That being said – there can be a reluctance to want to add the extra travel required to bring athletes from all over the country for a single camp.  But any reluctance I might have had was erased at this camp after just three short days here at Michigan Tech University in Houghton, MI where the camp is being held.

“Thank you for all the support for the OPA Cup trip. I am still trying to figure it all out, something I could never do without the NNF.”
