REGISTRATION FOR THE 2018-19 PROGRAM IS NOW OPEN ON ZONE4 UNDER "SUN PEAKS NORDIC CLUB MEMBERSHIP" (Sign up here).
Our program follows the Cross Country Canada Skill Development Program for children. Our program is directed at young skiers between the ages of 4 – 18, who want to learn the basics of cross country skiing, both classic and skating, aiming to instill a lifelong interest in the sport and enhance health and quality of life. This program helps children develop confidence, provides them with an opportunity to ski and socialize with their ski friends, builds physical literacy and develops outdoor winter safety skills in a fun environment. As part of the program we also offer 4 introductory sessions in biathlon, using high tech battery-powered laser rifles (no bullets!) for kids aged 9 and up, with parental permission. Our program offers coaching for Bunnyrabbits (age 4-5), Jackrabbits (age 6-9), Track Attack (age 10-12) and Youth (age 13-18). All our coaches have full NCCP certification. Registration fees: Bunnies – $70 Jackrabbits – $85 Track Attack – $105 Youth – $105
The program fee will include free registration in the Sun Peaks Loppet. Please note that in order for a child to register in the program, both the child and one parent must be members of the Sun Peaks Nordic Club. Contact our coordinator (below) with any questions. Equipment Rental: Skis, boots and poles (classic and skate) are available for rental for $60 per season (includes both classic and skate).
