Two national training groups were announced by the German Ski Association for the 2008/2009 season. This decision was made because of the coming World Championships in Liberec – first in the history, in which women will be allowed to compete.
Jenna Mohr, Anna Häfele, Ulrike Grässler, Juliane Seyfarth and Magdalene Schnurr are the members of the first training group. The head coach of this team will be Daniel Vogler and his asistant – Danny Winkelmann.
The second team consists of Lisa Rexhäuser, Melanie Faißt, Carina Vogt, Svenja Würth, Sarah Pöppel and Franziska Schubert. This group will be coached by the former German ski jumper – Stefan Pieper.
Right now the German girls are training in their home clubs, but on June 11th, the first big training camp is planned in Hinterzarten.
