This program will be designed for 11-14 years who have completed the Jackrabbit program, still want to continue to improve both their classic and skating skills, but do not want to race. Rather than focus on speed and racing, this course will focus more on distance, endurance, winter camping skills, and be an introduction to becoming a cross country ski coach.
The objective is to keep children involved in cross country skiing, introduce them to the possibility of coaching and/or participating in ski marathons or Loppets such as the Canadian Ski Marathon. Children will be expected to have completed Jackrabbit Level 4 (Muskox) and have the physical fitness to ski 15 km in 2 hours.
TIME: 1:00PM to 2:30PM
DATES: TO BE DETERMINED
