Youth Lessons

We are looking for youth coaches, please see below.

Saturdays, January 13 –  March 3 from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m at Brunello (Timberlea) and McDonald Sport Park (Waverley).

  • Bunnyrabbits (4-5yrs) (To register “Bunnyrabbits/Jackrabbits”)
  • Jackrabbits (5-9yrs) (To register “Bunnyrabbits/Jackrabbits”)
  • Track Attack (10-13yrs),
  • Trailblazers (14-16yrs) – recommended for both those who have moved through the Jackrabbit/Track Attack programs, as well as newcomers to the sport (entry at age 14-16yrs). Although learning to train for fitness and local racing is a focus, Trailblazers welcomes everyone who likes to ski and have fun with similar aged peers – including non-racers.
  • Junior Racers (over 12yrs) – skiers who have progressed through Track Attack and want to ski stronger and faster and start racing.

 

We Need More Youth Coaches!

As participation in our programs continues to grow, we need more coaches, especially for Youth X-C. You only need to be familiar with the basics of xc skiing and to bring enthusiasm to the job.

If you don’t feel you are ready to lead a class, why not be an Assistant Coach? It’s a great opportunity to help with a class and develop your skills.

Our coaches and instructors are volunteers, and they are the backbone of our programs. Without more, we may have to limit the number of program participants. We would much rather add classes so more can learn to ski than turn people away – we just need a few more coaches!
