We share a love of Nordic skiing with local youth. We help them learn skills, enjoy the outdoors in winter, have fun and try and excel at racing within a supportive and safe community of Nordic ski friends.
The Nordic ski team has three programs to meet the needs and desires of different junior skiers.
- The Kindergarten Program is for 5-6 year olds and meets once a week.
- The Koos Cruisers is an entry level program for children in 1st-6th grades and meets twice a week.
- The Comp/Devo Team has two groups, a middle school group (5th-7th grades) and a high school group, (8th-12th grades). They meet 3 or 4 times per week, depending on the level of racing interest of each skier.
Published program dates are tentative and depend on snow conditions and weather. The Leavenworth Nordic Ski Team utilizes Teamstuff, an app, for communication and registration. We practice on the Leavenworth Nordic trails and occasionally at other locations like Steven’s Pass Nordic Center.
Please read all the information on the website carefully and contact a coach if you have questions.
Space is limited. Enroll early!
Competition is encouraged and races are incorporated into the schedule for the Junior Racing Team. We will host Skirennen, which will take the place of one Saturday practice for all age groups. The Washington Nordic Cup races are free and fun races in north central WA. Many older skiers compete in the Junior National Qualifier races as well.
Grant money from Wenatchee Valley Medical Group to cover tuition (based on need and merit) is available. Deadline is December 10, 2018. Please have your skier write a paragraph about their need and what being on the Junior Nordic Team would mean to them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
