Dryland Training: Chicopee Racing dryland training begins Sunday, October 1, 10am - 12. Training runs for eight weeks consecutively to November 19.

Note: This fitness program is for U10 - U16 racers only.

The dryland training series will introduce racers to their winter coaches and team mates and provide a fitness base. We will work on skills that make our on snow training more productive. The sessions will include drills that develop agility, strength, flexibility and stamina.

All fitness training is done outside on the Chicopee property, in all weather conditions, so please dress appropriately.

There will also be info sessions for parents that address equipment requirements and maintenance.


Please be advised that as per the New International FIS standards, ACA now requires FIS compliant helmets for ALL U14+ racing athletes. More specifics can be found in the 2016-17 National Rules and Policies.

The FIS rule reads as follows from the FIS Specifications for Competition Equipment and Commercial Markingspage 8, 6.2.1 Crash Helmets/GS/SG/DH:

Label attesting conformity with FIS specifications for racing helmets (GS/SG/DH):

Fulfilment of requirements is to be attested by a specific standardised conformity label affixed in a non-removable way at the back of the helmet in a location which is and shall remain visible. The label shall in particular not be covered by the goggle strap. The conformity label is shown in the attachment (see page 44 and below). It shall include the following text: «Racing helmet conform to FIS specifications 2013». Labels affixed by manufacturers shall comply with the specifications set forth in the attachment.

The conformity label attests that the manufacturer has obtained the required certifications (EN 1077 A and ASTM 2040) and obtained a test protocol confirming that the concerned helmet model fulfills the requirements set forth above under 6.2.1. Upon request, the certification documentation and test protocol shall be provided to the FIS.

Also, please be advised that back protectors (properly fit) are strongly recommended for any speed racing and AOA will be considering adopting a mandatory rule for the 2017/18 season. ACA and FIS do not mandate back protectors for speed racing yet but we anticipate this will be the case for the 2017/18 season.
