Racing Team

The Kawartha Nordic Racing Team offers training and racing experiences for athletes aged 10 through 22, led by certified and experienced Nordic Ski coaches.

Our race team program includes:

  • Regular training for those interested in skiing fast
  • Race experiences for those interested in trying or pursuing any level of racing
  • Fitness and skill development
  • Healthy, outdoor recreation
  • The social support of a team environment
  • Age-approriate practices in smaller groups that target the developmental stages of different athletes
  • A mixture of skiing, roller skiing, strength training, running, ski striding, and other conditioning methods
  • Personalized training plans (for experienced athletes) that includes workouts to be completed on their own

While athletes are encouraged to give racing a try at school, at our club, or around the province, there is no requirement to race.
