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 open when the 'Sign-up' buttons below each program card are active.

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 Kawartha Nordic Racing Team.

Youth programs are scheduled for Saturday mornings and afternoons in January and February (please check the calendar for dates).

Bunnyrabbits, Jackrabbits and Track Attack will be offered in separate sessions on Saturday mornings from 10:00am to noon and on Saturday afternoons from 1:00-3:00pm. Racing Rabbits will only be offered on Saturday afternoons from 1:00-3:00pm. Please be sure to register for the correct session in the online registration form.

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.
