Saturday November 28

The snow situation is still a bit sketchy, but we'll make a go of it. Saturday Morning could be a bit chilly with -15 predicted around 10:30, but warming up to -9 by noon. So come with skis and good layers and we'll be ready to go! 

Still interested but haven't had the chance to register? come on out! We'll be locking things down soon so we can order jackrabbit kits for the new year.But there is still time to get that all sorted out. 

Looking for skis? We have some good info on local ski shops and the various programs available. Let us know. 

See you Saturday!

November 21 Session - Snow and Skiing!

There is (mostly) enough snow to ski. So it is time to get this skiing season properly under way.

Saturday. Skis. 10:30 at the Soccer Field (now the skiing field!).

In terms of dress, it is looking chilly. With the windchill it looks like -17, so dress pretty warm. We'll keep everyone moving. The snow has a lot of moisture in it so even if it is cool, we can still get wet - and kids *will* be falling down. Jeans and fleece as an outer layer are not great ideas.

If you haven't registered yet, don't worry, just come on out. But if you are planning to, please do so soon.

Session Saturday November 14

It was great to get back into the skiing frame of mind last week. I have heard from a number of families that they are wrapping up their fall activities and will be starting Jackrabbits once those are done. For the rest of us, Saturday looks like an incredible day for the middle of November. It will be great to get outside, play some games and go for a bit of a run.

If you haven't had the chance to register yet, please do - it helps us as we plan for the year.

This Saturday Coach Ted will be taking his certification courses, and Coach James is away with family. Coach Adam will be there ready to go at 10:30 at the Soccer Field. Hope to see you then!

Registration Open!

You can register online for Wildwood Jackrabbits:

You are asked to register as a family, including registering the parents/caregivers. This ensures that everyone is covered by insurance and all the liability stuff is taken care of. 

There is an option to add a donation for trail grooming. This is optional. It says Minimum $10, but that just means that IF you are donating, the minimum the system will process is $10. 

When you are registering people, please add your email and opt-in to the club communications - this is just the Jackrabbits club and is only so we can send information about sessions (like when things are canceled or moved etc). 

When you register there is a checkbox to have membership in the CCSAM. This is required and the fees are already included in the registration fee, but you need to check it anyway. There is an option to donate to Cross Country Canada as well - that again is up to you. 

The process is pretty quick and carries information forward from one registrant to the next rather nicely. Let us know if you have any troubles. 

If you are new to jackrabbits or considering registering but have questions, please don't hesitate to email us:

Our first session is scheduled for this Saturday morning at 10:30. The weather looks to be Sunny, but brisk, so we'll keep things moving, but dress for the weather. We'll send another note out right before the session. If you don't have time to register before then, don't worry, just come!
