All participants will receive a hi-vis team t-shirt and occasional post-practice treats.

Registration is being built; in the meantime, please let us know your interest to participate by completing this 2 question survey:  2024 Junior Summer Dryland Interest.  A new TeamSnap group will be created with contact information from the survey.

Registration requires signing up for a new family club membership (includes membership to Nordiq Canada, Cross Country Ski Ontario, and the Northern Ontario District). The family club membership is $80+HST, and is a once-a-year fee; you will not have to pay this fee again for winter programming as long as you ensure each individual in your family who will be active with the ski club in the 2024-2025 season is listed under your family membership (e.g., Dad is a General Member, Mom is a Coach, Brother is a General Member if he is not participating in dryland). These extra steps now will ensure everyone is insured properly and avoids extra registration fees later.

It’s going to be a great summer!
