Skill Development Program for Young Skiers

The Skill Development Program offered to our young skiers by the Fernie Nordic Society was actually developed by the nation-wide organization Cross Country Canada. The program is standardized across the country. All our volunteer coaches are trained according to the established structure to provide a consistent level of training to our skiers.

The levels in the program are aimed at the various age groups:

Bunnyrabbit Program for children 5 years and younger
Jackrabbit Program for children from 6 to 10 years old
Track Attack Program for children 11 years and older

The Fernie Nordic Society provides training at these levels at our weekly Saturday morning and Tuesday after school sessions. Lessons run from January to April. We also have additional training at other times of the year such as dry-land training during summer and autumn. Events may combine the efforts of other clubs nearby. This is a great opportunity for young skiers to improve their skills in a fun atmosphere and to challenge themselves.

Cost of lessons

Bunnyrabbit     $60 for either the Saturday or Tuesday sessions
Jackrabbit         $70 for either the Saturday or Tuesday sessions
TrackAttack      $75 for both the Saturday and Tuesday sessions

Please note that enrollment into the program will be done ONLINE for the 2018-2019 season. We invite you go to the Zone4.ca webpage to register your child. Ski rental can also be reserved online at the same time. For more information about our program, or to register your child, you may also use our Contact Us page.
