Training with Jodi

Last Thursday I travelled to Denham Waterski Club to train with Jodi Fisher. I had a great two sets working on slalom (and diving) for nationals and Europeans!  I’m super exited to be flying out to France in a few weeks for the European Championships with the rest of the British Team to have a great competition just before school starts again!

Thank you to all the people who have put competitions on this year that have allowed me to be selected for the team and to my coaches John Battleday and Jodi Fisher for the ongoing support.

Squad Training

I had an amazing time at this years Under 14 and under 17 squad training days at DAMS Watersports learning lots of new things on and off the water! Thank you to Friends of Tournament and the 200 Club for making these days possible and to Damien Acker for some amazing coaching.

A special thanks to Tom Williams and Mac Nutrition for two great talks on injury prevention and health as well as Ali for making cake I could eat!

Ice Skating

When I’m not training at JB Ski I am a the ice rink working on jumps and spins to help with my skiing (and its really fun!).

I think that ice skating has helped a lot with water skiing as I have developed  good balance to do jump and many of the principles are the same or similar. I think that when you do a sport competitively, it is important to not only do that sport but continue or start others that can help to develop your skills even further.

Thank you so much to my ice skating coach Roland!

My First Year of Jump

I have really enjoyed learning and competing in jump this year and I want to say a big thank you to Jodi Fisher to lending me the skis for free, thank you so much! I love being a three eventer and being involved in all the disciplines and overall scores.  After two years of riding the skis it is thrilling to  actually jumping and I am really excited to continue working hard to improve over the next years!

Also and big thanks to Richard Mattos and Mark Burridge for all the work they have done in getting the jump back in at JB Ski and John Battleday for all the coaching!Jump 4Jump 1Molly in jump gear-minJodi Ski Skool Ski's-min

Jodi’s world Tour

On Thursday the 2nd of August I went all the way to Denham Waterski Club with Dani Halford and Emily Newsome to train with Jodi. We had a great time and Jodi’s coaching was amazing as always, giving me loads of help on my gates to help me run 13 more often.

I had three skis with Jodi and did  two slaloms and one trick. After nationals we were just working on getting my confidence back on tricks and I had a really good set just practicing my runs and working on my wake 540.

Slalom was also very good. We stayed on longer line lengths and worked on technique and my gate pull out to help me get wide enough . This will help me to run shorter rope lengths, especially in competition.

Thank you to Jodi for all the amazing coaching and Denham ski club for hosting the day.
