Strathcona Nordics Ski Club is pleased to offer two recreational programs for youth:
The Strathcona Nordics Adventure Program (SNAP) is a program for tweens and teens, 10-15. It brings together a number of disciplines in the family of Nordic skiing sports. SNAP continues to build on existing classic and skate skills, introduce and/or expand on snowshoeing skills, one of the fastest growing winter sports, and give kids an opportunity to try out the exhilarating sport of biathlon which involves both skiing and rifle marksmanship as well as ski-orienteering which includes map navigation along snow trails and tracks. Telemark and backcountry skiing may also be introduced as the program develops.
SNAP skiers meet for 10 weeks on Sunday, 10am to noon, and are coached by qualified club coaches.
This group runs concurrent with the Sunday Rabbit Skill Development Program. Participants are required to have completed the Rabbit Program or have a solid knowledge of classic and skate techniques.
Youth Learn to Ski
The Youth Learn to Ski Program is a fun, beginner recreational program for children, 10-14, with little-to-no skiing experience, who wish to learn or improve their classic and skating techniques in a fun, social, group environment through a season of coached sessions.
Youth Learn to Ski participants meet for 10 weeks on Saturday or Sunday, 10 am to noon, and are coached by qualified club coaches. All recreation programs begin on weekend of January 12/13, 2019.
This group runs concurrent with the Saturday and Sunday Rabbit Skill Development Program. Note that the actual session days offered will be dependent on the number of registrations and majority preference.
Please note that Strathcona Nordics does not provide drop in or individual lessons or instruction. Skiers looking for these options please visit Mount Washington’s Nordic Lessons.
