The TUNA Recreation League Ski Team begins Thursday, January 5th, 2017, but anyone is welcome to sign up for the program at any time! All skiers, ages 6-12, are invited to participate, as well as 6-7 year olds with previous experience with cross-country skiing and cold weather. Practices are generally held at Mtn. Dell, however, due to variable snow conditions this is subject to change Please check the Rec League calendar http://www.utahnordic.com/Rec-League-Calendar for up-to-date practice information.
This program is for for kids 6-12 years old, beginners to advanced skiers. The emphasis is on fun, learning ski skills, and developing a life long interest in x-c skiing. Skiers are grouped based on age and ability during the first few sessions of the season to ensure that all skiers are placed in compatible groups.
Feel free to read our Junior Program Philosophy document, attached below, to find out more about the progression of our Junior programs and how your child can progress as a skier from a young age gradually into a lifelong Nordic enthusiast!
We strongly encourage the two-day a week program for maximum enjoyment and ski skill building, but for families looking for more flexiblitiy we offer a one-day a week program. Please use the drop down menu for the one-day a week option.
TUNA is a volunteer based organization and your volunteer time helps keep the club running smoothly and the prices down. Although not required, we ask you to volunteer 3 to 5hrs a season. Some ideas for volunteer time: manning the greeter hut at Mtn Dell while your child is skiing, skiing with a Rec group, carpooling, and helping with the fund raising events. We appreciate your involvement! For volunteer opportunities please contact Lucy at lucyxcski [at] gmail [dot] com
Advanced and older skiers should consider the XC Team.
Please Note: This year the annual Uniform and Gear Rental pick up for Recreation League Program will be held on December 3, 2016 at The McGillis School.
