Summer dryland training is designed to keep athletes fit while having fun. We hike, bike, run, and play organized games (like soccer and frisbee). With BSF's professional coaches, you'll explore beautiful mountain trails and create new adventures.
Athletically, it helps develop cardiovascular capacity, endurance, flexibility, strength, and balance. But it's also about enjoying our environment and developing team-building skills, confidence, and friendships.
All kids are welcome to join us. (Soccer players, runners, outdoor enthusiasts, etc.) No specific ski skills are necessary to take part, and dryland training benefits all types of athletic and outdoor pursuits. No prior fitness levels requirements. In other words, as long as you want to move and enjoy the outdoors, COME JOIN US.
