Track Attack     
Ages 9-13

Program

Track Attack focuses on 'Learning to Train'. This program is the beginning of 'Learning to Train' for our developing athletes (see Nordiq Canada web site). TRACK ATTACK is for young skiers whose goal is to refine their classic and skate technique in a fun environment as part of a team

A wide variety of skiing activities will be used to develop Nordic skiing knowledge and skills. While racing is not required to be involved in Track Attack, entering at least 2 local events is highly encouraged as it gives many benefits not afforded in a strictly recreational program.

Skiing experience is required for this program. Completion of Jackrabbit levels or LEAD coach's assessment is required for participation, based on skill and capacity development.
