2017–2018 Jackrabbit Program – Welcome Information

On behalf of Soo Finnish Nordic Ski Club (SFNSC), welcome to both our new and returning members and thank you for registering your child in a youth ski program. We look forward to sharing our passion for the sport of cross country skiing this season. You will receive an email or phone call from your child’s coach before lessons start.

First Session
The first session is on Saturday, December 16th at 10 AM with a BBQ social at 11:30. New skiers will meet their coaches indoors at the KinCentre (the beige lodge with the large Hiawatha Highlands sign) at 780 Landslide Rd, and returning skiers will meet outside on the ball field (unless otherwise indicated by coach). This lesson will occur regardless of snow conditions; please bring ski equipment (labelled with your child’s name – very important as there are many children with the same equipment) and dress appropriately for the weather. There will be a PARENT MEETING at approximately 10:30 AM in the KinCentre. We encourage parents to attend to learn more about the programs and events planned for this season.

Regular Schedule
All lessons begin promptly at 10:00 AM outdoors on the ball field by the KinCentre. Please note that coaches may set up alternative meeting places from time to time. Athletes are advised to arrive by 9:45 AM. Arriving after 10 AM may cause your child to miss the group’s departure and it is unreasonable to expect others to wait around in the cold for a late skier.

Holiday Schedule
Lessons will occur on December 23 and 30, but classes may be modified depending on coach and class attendance. Parents are always encouraged to join in on the fun, especially during the holidays.
