The Team NordicSkiRacer Junior Ski Club is starting its third season (2019-2020).
Our goal is to give young skiers an opportunity to cross country ski with their peers, advance their skiing skills and have FUN. Skiers of all abilities are welcome to join and learn a sport they can enjoy for a lifetime. (parents of young skiers are more than welcome too).
WHO: The club is open to young people ages 10-18 years of age.
WHEN: Ski practices will be held at Huron Meadows Metropark Ski Center (8765 Hammel Rd, Brighton, MI). Huron Meadows HAS SNOW MAKING CAPABILITY! Ski rentals are available for those skiers that do not have equipment. Junior Club ski equipment available to borrow as well.
SKI PRACTICES: Ski practices will focus on learning and improving cross country ski skills for both Classic and Skate technique. Practices will be coached by experienced members of Team Nordic Ski Racer. Practices will consist of fun drills (pylons, obstacle course, balance drills) to help learn about technique. Skiers will be grouped by age and ability level. Time will be allotted for members to ski, socialize, and enjoy the snow.
CROSS COUNTRY SKI RACING: Racing is not a requirement to be a member of the team. What’s most important is to have fun skiing. For those that are interested in XC ski racing, the Michigan Cup XC Ski Race series includes races with a Junior category: Frosty Freestyle, held at Huron Meadows (January 2020), North American VASA and Annual Junior Muffin Team Sprint Relay (February 2020) among others.
