Youth Programs

Why involve your child in a cross-country skiing youth program?

Great friends

Your child will meet new friends.

Everything You Need And Safe

You do not have to worry – the programs are well designed and have been running for numerous years.

Affordable & Healthy

The youth program is very affordable. What better for your child than playing and skiing outside with friends?

Our Youth Programs follow the Programs developed by Cross-Country Canada. CCC has developed a modern, state-of-the-art progression of skill development programs for children. This exciting program conforms to the Canadian LTAD model and provides a vertically integrated continuum of development opportunities for children in the first stages of skier development.

Bunnyrabbits (5 and under) is the first level of the Youth Program.. Bunnyrabbits is directed at children in the ‘Active Start’ stage of development. The objective is to introduce cross-country skiing and a healthy lifestyle associated with organized activity and active play. The program is designed to develop fundamental cross-country ski skills, coordination, self confidence, imagination and social skills.

Jackrabbits (6 to 9 years) is the second level of the Youth Program and directed at children in the ‘FUNdamentals’ stage of development. This is the second level of the program. The objective is for children to learn basic cross-country ski skills (both classic and skating) and to instill a lifelong interest in the sport, thereby enhancing their quality of life and health.

Track Attack (10 to 12 years) is the third level of the Youth Program and is directed at children in the ‘Learning to Train’ stage of development. This is the third level of the program. The objective is for the participants to become technically competent cross-country skiers and to utilize those skills to explore a wide range of cross-country ski activities. The program is designed to further develop and refine all the cross-country ski skills.

The Youth Programs sessions are offered on Saturday afternoons usually starting the second week of January.
