Track Attack

About the Track Attack Program:

 

This program targets young skiers ages 9 to 13. Kids learn techniques of cross-country skiing through games and structured coaching. Sessions are a mix of tempo skiing, skill development and games. Most Track Attack kids come through our Jackrabbits program before entering this program. However, we do welcome new skiers who are motivated to learn. Skiers are introduced to some racing and training concepts but racing is not mandatory. The emphasis of the program is to learn good ski technique, be a part of our skiing community, and ultimately encourage children to enjoy skiing as a lifelong activity.

Dryland: We will be meeting twice per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting September 12th to play team-building games, try out roller skiing, and to do some local hikes. The emphasis of this part of the season is on being active and getting to know each other.

On Snow: We will ski twice a week at 4:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays from the end of November thru March. There will be opportunities to ski with the Nordic Racers and upper level Jackrabbits. There will be additional optional activities included on select dates TBD. Optional activities include introduction to Biathlon & Ski Orienteering, participation in Nordic Fest, a waxing workshop, several local hikes, and team-building opportunities.
