We are exited to get the season going. Below you will find some basic information about our season.

Eau Claire Ski Striders-Kicking Kids is open to children ages 4-17. Lessons are available to all abilities: beginner through skater. Proficient skaters may join the racing technique group and/or are encouraged to assist in the instruction of younger skiers.

This eight week program teaches not only cross country skiing skills but also winter safety, group participation, and techniques learned can also be used in downhill skiing and ski jumping. The program provides opportunity for skill development, fitness, fun, and family participation. Parents are encouraged to ski along.

All Meetings are from 4:30pm-6:00pm

ECYSL is affiliated with Central Cross Country Skiing, the designated body for the development of cross country skiers in the 10 state Central Region of the United States. The Mission of CXC Skiing is to provide an organization which enables athletes to achieve excellence in cross country skiing through: Education, Cooperation, Communication and Competition. Whether you are interested in competitive cross country skiing or not CXC provides organizations like ours a foundation to work from. We are excited about this partnership with CXC and believe it will equip our coaches and youth skiers with pertinent skiing skills.
