The Junior program is designed to motivate skiers in Grades 6 through 8 (and Grade 5 upon coach’s assessment) who consider Nordic skiing their favourite winter sport. Skiers will learn skate and classic technique through coordination and agility drills, demonstrations and trail skiing adventures. Our staff is trained to work with a wide range of abilities; we have progressions to fit your needs. Program content is age appropriate and FUN! The program will be led by Kim Getty with support from Head Coach Jack Sasseville & parent volunteers (see Parent Volunteers section).
