What you will learn:
Increasing the occurrence of long athletic careers within the U.S. Ski Team has been critical to its success. Interestingly, it's is the cultural experience within the team, rather than podium-level results, that are linked to these long careers. If you're looking to improve culture within your team, this class will provide you with ideas that are sure to move the needle.
About the instructor:
Matt is the Head Coach for the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team, which recently returned from the Beijing Winter Olympics. He began working with the team in 2006, and has coached it through four Olympics, where in 2018, Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall won a gold medal. The team hadn't won a medal at the Olympics since 1976. The team picked up another two medals at the Beijing 2022 Olympics, when Jessie captured a bronze and a silver.
While coaching cross country ski racers is about maximizing fitness, Matt attributes his team's focus on positive group dynamics as a key to its success. This method can be applied to any person in any field. Matt is a graduate of Middlebury College, where he competed as a racer himself, and currently lives in Burke, Vermont.
