Youth Lessons

The main focus of all our youth lessons is fun on the snow. Within each program we aim to address the needs of beginner and experienced skiers, sometimes in separate groups. Registration for youth programs is completed online beginning in October.

The youth programs are very popular and often fill up quickly, so we recommend you follow us on Twitter (@KawarthaNordic and @KNSCYOUTH) or Facebook to be notified when registration opens. Members from the last 3 years will also receive an email notification when registration opens.

Experienced youth skiers are encouraged to consider our Athlete Development Program.

For 2019, the youth programs are scheduled for Saturday afternoons in January and February (January 5, 12, 19, 26 and February 2, 9, 16, 23).

Please note that participants in youth programs must be registered as members in Kawartha Nordic. The membership costs are not included in the program rates below. Please see the Rates page for more information.
