NENSA Equipment sale has started.
NENSA has run a ski rental program for a number of years but is unable to continue it. As a result they are selling off their equipment. More details are on our Equipment page.
EMBK continues to be the largest youth cross country ski club in New England, but we always need to get the word out to new families and skiers. Spread the word! Download and print this flyer (or make your own) to post in your local library, schools, coffee shops, distribute through your PTO, etc.
See this map to find out where your child meets for practice!
EMBK needs coaches for skiers age 7-14. You don't need to have children in the program. You don't need to be able to ski fast. You don't even need to know how to coach. We will teach you that part. You just need to know how to ski classic and skate.
Coaching can be very fun and rewarding. You will have a part in helping skiers build a lifelong love of skiing. You may even be coaching a future Olympian -- EMBK is the feeder program for Cambridge Sports Union which has produced numerous national champion skiers. Finally, it will make you a better skier, too.

Welcome to EMBK!
EMBK offers cross-country skiing for youths ages 7-14 in the Boston area. We hold on-snow practices at the DCR's Leo J. Martin Ski Track ("Weston Ski Track") located near the intersection of Rt. 128 and the Mass Pike. Practices are held Saturday mornings from 9 to 10:30am.
The club introduces young skiers to the joys of cross-country (XC) skiing through our program of coaching with a low skier-coach ratio and instruction methods developed for young skiers. The club has both racing and non-racing components. Cross-country skiing is a low-impact sport and is great cross-training for runners, soccer players, and other young athletes! No prior XC skiing experience is necessary.
