Ski S'Kool Programs are a great way to introduce cross-country skiing to children in elementary schools.
The main objectives of these programs are:
- Introducing large numbers of children to cross-country skiing.
- Recruitment of young children to Jackrabbit, Track Attack and other club delivered junior development programs.
- Linking elementary school cross-country ski programs with community club programs.
- Encouraging elementary schools to include cross-country skiing as part of their curriculum.
