Fall SAS Happenings: Back to School

As school gets back in session here in Jackson, several of the JHSC Class of 2022 are getting settled right in on their college adventures.

Axel Klomparens (Nordic Alum) has already climbed the tallest peak in CO, Mt. Elbert, with his Colorado College cross country teammates. Way to represent JHSC, Axel!

Elsie Hall (Nordic Alum) checks out her new spot in the Bates College ski locker room!


School Partnerships

We're excited at JHSC for the beginning of another school year: our student-athletes are gearing up at our local partner schools and in online programs as they dive into their fall sports or continue dryland training with their Club Programs. 

To learn more about our winter early-release programming for student-athletes in G6-12, and our JHSC School Partnerships, please visit our webpage or reach out to the SAS Director with questions.


Student-Athlete Education: Upcoming Events

This fall, we are delighted to host two speakers who will present to all Club athletes during Fall Dryland programming. Events will be held at 5PM in the Snow King Lodge Room. All families are welcome!

 Lexie Drechsel, September 27

"Injury Prevention for the Winter Sport Athlete"


Doctor of Physical Therapy, USSA-200 alpine coach, and an avid skier, Lexie Drechsel will discuss the importance of dryland training and conditioning to help you have your best season yet & stay injury free! Presentation will be followed by Q&A and a review of foundational exercises for the winter sport athlete.

Devin Delaney, "Healthy Athlete Nutrition" (date coming soon!) 

Additionally, the SAS and athletic Program Directors are excited to pilot a Clubwide series of weekly Mental training sessions this fall, covering topics including goal setting, mindfulness and visualization in sport, growth mindset, and how to foster healthy sport community. Topics will be announced on your team calendar, so keep an eye out from mid September–November. We are excited to use the fall dryland sessions to build Clubwide community through sport education.


Concussion Testing

A baseline concussion test is required for all athletes U14 and older/YOB 2010 and earlier per JHSC Concussion Policy. Complete information is on the SAS website. If you have completed a test elsewhere this summer, or will test through TCSD, you may submit that information on our Concussion Testing Verification Google Form and do not need to test again for JHSC. 

For all athletes in this age range who need to test, JHSC provides a code for an ImPACT at-home baseline test, to be taken on a computer or tablet. Testing codes will be sent out the week of September 12 to the registered athlete and/or parent/guardian. Please complete the test as soon as possible. After Oct. 1, student-athletes will not be allowed to participate in Fall dryland programming until they have completed a baseline test.  Please reach out to Grace with any questions:
