Jackrabbits

Program

The Jackrabbit Program is designed for the “FUNdamentals” stage of development and encouraging FUN and participation. At this stage of development, the basic motor skills are developed which establish a foundation for participation in sports or physical life-activities. For Nordic skiing, these skills can be summarized as Agility, Balance, and Coordination (ABC’s). Movement skills are essential to developing sport skills, for example without balance a skier cannot properly glide in classic or skating. This is a prime window of opportunity for developing movement skills. Jackrabbits set a foundation that allows skiers to progress into either Adventure or Racing programs including Biathlon.
