Ski Lessons - Nordic - 2 Options!
St. Albans Jr. High Nordic
This is an instructional program is for middle schoolers – Grades 5-8 to learn to XC ski. The program will be run by former BFA Skier Cody Putnam with support from current BFA coach Scott Magnan & current BFA Nordic team members.
We’ll start mid January – conditions permitting and ski until the snow runs out. Each participant must have their own skis and equipment and should wear a headlamp as we lose sunlight early in the day. Locations may change depending on where the snow is so families are asked to follow the coach's blog for practice location information. A link will be provided below. Participants in this program are encouraged to also participate in Thursday evening ski sessions listed below. Participants will learn basics of ski care and waxing.
There are race opportunities for middle school skiers, Coaches Magnan and Putnam will address that interest on an individual basis as skiers develop and show interest.
Not sure what to get for equipment? There will be a meeting with the coaches on Tuesday 12/11/18 5:30-6:30pm at Barlow Street Community Center to talk about equipment needs. We will have information regarding rental packages available from The Ski Rack and Alpine Shop and special team discounts for our skiers.
