The second level of our programming is the “FUNdamentals” stage of development. It has been developed in parallel with the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). Program materials include an enrollment kit, special toque and an illustrated booklet that tracks levels of achievement. The objective is for children to learn basic cross-country ski skills, including classic and skating styles and to instill a lifelong interest in the sport. Participants will develop the basics of agility, balance, coordination and speed, as well as good ski technique habits, fun and fitness. This is a 14 session (28 instructional hour) program.
