Junior Ski Team – Ages 11-14
The objective of the Junior Ski Team is to give young athletes between the ages of 11 and 14 their first taste of cross-country ski racing. It is an introductory racing program with a focus on Learning to Train and introducing racing in a supportive environment. The “racing team” focus of this group will present young skiers with an opportunity to support one another as a team, while the competition element will provide motivation and reward for their hard work.
Participation in the Summer Dryland Training Progam is encouraged.
Athletes travelling to races on the Junior Ski Team Schedule are expected to travel to these races and to lodge with their parent/guardian.
Athletes who travel to out of town races with the Senior Team Schedule can choose to travel with their parents and will be expected to pay a portion of coach/wax
tech support costs as well as a wax fee of $20 per race. Those athletes travelling with the Senior team and without their parents will also be responsible for a portion of the
chaperone fees. .
