Nickel Plate Junior Racers

If you have an interest in Nordic ski racing or just want to take your skiing to the next level, we have the program for you Suitable for skiers of all skill levels, the Junior Racing program is focused on high school aged athletes (and younger upon coach’s assessment) who want to train for Nordic skiing in a structured, competition-oriented group. The racing focus for this program is on local BC Cup and Okanagan Cup races, as well as other local loppet races. The training and technique instruction is designed to push athletes to achieve at their highest level of fitness and competency. The full value of the program is derived from the consistent day to day relationship the skier develops with their coach and teammates.

Coaches provide solid, consistent training and racing opportunities for motivated athletes while simultaneously fostering a lifelong love for an active, outdoor lifestyle. There will be a number of travel opportunities for Learn to Train and Train to Train Program athletes who are interested in racing the BC Cup level races, as well as attending local & regional races.

Let’s get that podium!
