Junior Nordics

NSCF Junior Nordics provides an opportunity for children to enjoy the Fairbanks winter while learning the sport of cross country skiing. Children ages 4 to 14 of all abilities are welcome to join and learn a sport they can pursue for a lifetime. The emphasis is on fun, fitness, and learning proper technique.

NSCF Junior Nordics skiers receive instruction in both classical and skate techniques from enthusiastic and dedicated coaches. Skiers learn proper care and handling of equipment, trail etiquette, good sportsmanship and how to act responsibly in the outdoors. A typical practice session will include a warm-up period, a lesson in a technique and appropriate length group ski on the trails, ending with a fun activity.

Just a reminder that there will be no Jr Nordics during the Winter Holiday Break Dec 19 - Jan 8th.

Jr Nordics will resume Sunday, Jan 9, 2011.
