Kamview Nordic Centre is proud to host the Kamview Jackrabbit Youth Learn To Ski Program. This volunteer-run organization coaches 100+ children, ages 4 to 14, every winter.
Lessons run on Saturday mornings from approximately 10 am to noon. Exact start time will be decided by your coaches. Level 4 and Track Attack skiers also have Thursday evening sessions. This year the program will run from December 5, 2020 until March 20, 2021. Please note that once registered you will receive further information from the coaches and coordinator.
Registration for the upcoming 2020/2021 season of lessons available here on Zone4.ca until the end of December.
Kamview Jackrabbits are coached by a dedicated group of parent, grandparent and youth volunteers, and often, as the kids grow up, our volunteers move on! A heartfelt thank-you to all who have volunteered with us over the years. We are always keen to recruit new coaches. Training is available through Nordiq Canada (and paid for by the club), and a great opportunity to improve your skiing and coaching skills. If you know of any parents, grandparents or youth who would be interested in volunteering to have fun with the children on snow, please let us know!
