Family Cross Country Skiing
If your family enjoys cross country skiing and wants to ski with other families and/or learn together, this program is for you!
Our program focuses on families with boys and girls ages 5-12 and will meet twice a week at Service High School. Other ages may be accommodated upon request. Skiers will be placed in skill level groups following a short, timed event that occurs multiple times throughout the season to allow skiers the opportunity to see their progress and shift around as they improve. All kids will learn to classic ski, while those who are more comfortable on skis (and have combi or skate skis) will also be able to learn how to skate ski.
We request at least one PARENT from each family register and either learn along with your kids, ski along with a group as availability permits, help lead a group (focusing on keeping the group together and working on skills taught by coaches), or assist with teaching technique (focusing on teaching technique and rotating between groups). Parents who volunteer and are assigned as Group Leaders and Technique Coaches will receive discounts. Call Brad Coy if you are interested.
Our capacity is 50 child/youth skiers and their parents. After we have 50 child/youth skiers signed up, all other registrants will be placed on the waitlist in case of cancelations or the ability to increase our capacity. Our program differs from others because it is intended for the entire family to participate together. We know parents will be at all skill levels, and we will help you improve and learn tips for teaching kids. You do not have to be an expert, just enthusiastic! But experienced parents will help improve the program and be given discounts.
We will have one session that will meet at Service High School from 5:15-6:30pm on Mondays and Thursdays. Our initial gathering will be between the small gym and the hockey rink, and please come early enough to be ready to start skiing at 5:15pm.
Session 1: January 3 to March 3 ($150 per child/youth)
This program is designed to be a FUN, EXCITING and FAMILY FRIENDLY way to ski together and improve your skiing stamina and technique. All participants will need to provide their own gear, which is described in the CSA gear guide document at the link below. Additional links include a ski waxing guide and new skier information. The schedule assumes up to two practices may be canceled due to inclement weather (too cold, icy, etc.). If more than two practices are canceled, make up sessions will be held after Spring Break for those interested.
