The Youth XC Ski Program is for Grades 1-5. 10 week-long program with the opportunity to participate in the BKL Youth Ski Festival in February. We create a fun learning atmosphere through on & off-snow games that teach children the basics of classic and skate skiing, balance development through play, movement on skis, and a sense of accomplishment & appreciation of a lifelong sport of Nordic Skiing. We provide an opportunity for children to learn the benefits of long-term commitment, outdoor preparedness, and a solid love of the outdoors!
SKI EQUIPMENT: Proper xc skiing equipment is important & renting is the best way for your child to learn to ski!
It is highly recommended that Youth Skiers Rent skis, boots and poles!! Rental equipment is available. The rental program is separate from the grade 1- 4 ski program itself. The rental program is the best way of getting your children started with minimal out-of-pocket purchases and on the RIGHT equipment for maximum enjoyment. Rental equipment does NOT have “fish scales” on the bottom – so children are unimpeded in the learning process and are free to glide and kick properly. Renting is the way to go!
YORK RESIDENTS: Ski rentals are available through York Parks and Rec. Department. Please go here: YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER & Pay HERE before FIT NIGHT on Nov. 30th. Rentals are provided through the Outdoor Sports Institute.
NON-YORK RESIDENTS: For skiers from outside of York, contact Julia Peterson to arrange for a rental. Registration deadline is November 24, 2017 for the Rental Equipment.
