I’m so excited I’ve been asked to be part of Jodi’s Ski Team. Jodi Fisher has been coaching me in Florida for the last few years, and comes over to England to coach as well and catch up with his friends and family.
This year he’s the Key Note Speaker at the coaching conference run by the BWSW – details here. He’s an amazing coach and I’m so proud to be part of his team, and so grateful for the support he’s providing. Another big thanks go to Thule bags who are giving the team much needed, and great, equipment. It’s expensive to do three events but with the help of people like Jodi Fisher, and Thomas Syring at Thule I have a much better chance of reaching my dream of representing England at the European Water Skiing Championships.
This Easter I went out to Jodi’s to get away from the cold, and to start training to get ready for this coming season. It’s an important season for me as I want to make the U14 team. We spent loads of time on tricks, some time on slalom and even got the jump skis out (more on that later). I had a great time in Florida, and got bedded in on my tricks which I really wanted to do. Everyday, except for one day when we went to the Kennedy Space Centre, I skied at Jodi’s. Sometime 4 sets, each lasting about 30 minutes. So you can imagine it was a lot of work. Hopefully it’s helped get me ready for the first comps, fingers crossed!
