The Eastern Freeski team is for those with a desire to improve their skills and reach the next level. All team members compete at multiple levels, ranging from regional USASA competitions to national and international FIS races.
For many, the season really never ends, but officially the Eastern team starts training in early November and continues to compete through the middle of April. Our home mountain is Loon Mountain, but we have the option to follow the snow. The average Eastern athlete has between 90 and 120 days on snow, not including summer training.
In addition to participating in weekly strength and agility workouts designed by the school’s strength and conditioning coach, snow sports athletes can also work on technique with Nick Preston of Freestyle America or one of the other certified coaches on the school’s trampoline and on-campus air bag jump. We are committed to providing our snow sports athletes with the equipment, the programs, and the coaching staff they need to train hard and reach the next level.
As reported earlier this spring, campus has seen a buzz of activity as Holderness School works to complete a number of projects in advance of the 2022-23 academic year.
Nine Holderness School student-athletes committed to play competitive college athletics on Wednesday, May 4. These students represent some of the top athletic talent in New Hampshire and New England and are testaments to Holderness School’s culture of academic and athletic excellence.
In a moving show of support for a teammate who lost his father to cancer at the beginning of the school year, all 29 members of the Holderness boys varsity lacrosse team shaved their heads to raise nearly $30,000 for the Sarcoma Center at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
There is no terrain too rugged, race too long, mountain too high, climate too severe, or obstacle too difficult to keep Mirna Valerio from feeling the power of her body and using movement as a form of liberation and wellness. In her New York Times bestselling book, A Beautiful Work in Progress, Valerio writes, “This body isn’t meant to be stagnant or cease moving. When we stop moving in mind, body, and spirit, we stop learning. When we stop learning, we stop living. Therefore, when we stop moving, we stop living. We stop evolving toward being the human we are destined to be.” This is the message she carried to Holderness School these past few days.
