The Kawartha Nordic Racing Team offers training experiences for athletes led by certified and experienced Nordic Ski coaches. The team has two training programs: U12/U14 and U16/U18; though older and younger members are welcome to race for our team, and race suits and other kit are available for purchase in all sizes.
Each program offers a Nordic ski training opportunity for those interested in pursuing or exploring high performance ski racing, along with the fitness and skill development required, and the social support of a team.
Our team's training programs are for youth aged 10 through 18. Youth train together in their respective programs to prepare for classic and/or skate ski races with a mixture of skiing, roller skiing, strength training, running, ski striding and other conditioning methods.
There is a strong racing element to this training program, but there are also elements of outdoor, healthy, active recreation, social interaction, and community building among Nordic skiers.
The U12/U14 training program targets youth under 14 years of age (birth years 2006–2009) fitting into the Learn to Train (L2T) stage of the Nordiq Canada Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD), whereas the U16/U18 training program targets youth under 18 years of age (birth years 2002–2005) and fits the Train to Train (T2T) stage of the LTAD.
