An introduction to cross country skiing that emphasizes a healthy lifestyle and love of the outdoors. Children will be coached on basic skiing skills through games, group activities and active play, guided by Cross Country Canada’s Bunnyrabbit program resources.
WHEN: Saturday 2pm to 3pm
DURATION: January 7th to March 4th
FEE: $40 + LNSC Membership ($30 for children 5 years old and under)
RENTALS: Rental skis are available for weekly programming at a cost of $50
We ask that a parent be present with their Bunnyrabbit participants at least until they are comfortable. Having parents involved will allow us to keep the group moving in the cold weather, one on one support is often needed for new skiers. Ski rentals are available for parents. You may learn something too! If this is not possible then please let someone know at registration or the first day of classes, so we can accommodate with extra assistants.
The goal of this program is to introduce participants to an “Active Start” and the early development of fundamental movement skills which increase physical literacy. An increased physical literacy is linked to life-long participation in physical activity.
Weekly activities calendar coming soon for the 2016-2017 season.
