The JackRabbit program is designed for the “FUNdamentals” stage of skill development and is suitable for children 6-10 years of age. The objective is for children to learn basic cross-country ski skills and to instil a lifelong interest in the sport, thereby enhancing their quality of life and health.
***Due to COVID-19 and the need for physical distancing, coaches are unable to physically help young skiers to stand up, travel uphill, etc. For this reason, only those children who have participated in Jackrabbits with us previously or have comparable ski experience will be able to participate this season. ***
The JackRabbit program runs each Sunday afternoon from 2:00pm – 3:30pm, from as early as mid-December through the first weekend in March, snow conditions permitting.
Registration for the JackRabbit program is completed online. There are a limited number of JackRabbit spaces, so please register early to avoid disappointment. Registration before December 1st provides the program organizers with adequate time to complete their preparations so the program gets off to a clean start when the trails are ready. Children will not be able to participate without advance registration. [Registration for 2020/2021 is now closed]
