This program is meant for local athletes of age 11 to 15 coming from other sports who seek a structured fall-winter training program and want to improve in cross country skiing. The athletes will train with top Ontario skiers, learn XC ski tricks, improve abilities such as endurance, strength, balance, and enjoy beauty of snowy country. When registered the athletes can compete but additional fees will apply.  The fee includes 2-3 practices per week, team written training plan, and basic racing support. Athletes are expected to practice both ski techniques skating and classic (waxable classic skis strongly recommended). We’d be happy to provide you with ski gear purchase/rent advisory.
