About the Track Attack Family Ski

Wildwood Track Attack aims to foster the love of Cross Country Skiing in youth and their families. This group is affiliated with the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba and uses the Nordiq Canada Track Attack skills development programs as our base for youth 9-13. We are geared to families who want to ski together, develop their skills and have fun. We have specific programming aimed at beginning and intermediate skiers from 3 up.  Every ski will  focus on some skills to improve while skiing as a family.   We'll meet on Saturday mornings around 10 AM (weather permitting) and families will be able to ski for as long or as short as they want to.  Families, caregivers and grandparents are encouraged to ski and navigate together while enjoying the day!  

Locations:  This program is focused on improving ski skills by just going out for a ski at various locations in and around Winnipeg.  Once a month we will be skiing at Wildwood with the Jackrabbits and doing some fun activities/games.  Distances and terrain will vary depending on the location.

Some locations may require Provincial Park Passes or have trail fees which families will be responsible for.  Parents and caregivers are to generally be skiing together as a family to help with navigating and for COVID.  This will also help you discover your favorite place to go ski!

Startup: With COVID, we are going to start in late November and go until we run out of snow (March sometime usually). Fall sessions focus on games and exercise to get those ski muscles back in shape. Sessions throughout the winter focus on skills development and appreciation for skiing through skill drills, and getting some distance done on skis.

Registration: opens in mid October. We'll announce it here. Email us if you'd like us get on the announcement email list. wildwoodjackrabbits@gmail.com

Cost: $55/kid or $110/Family

Skis: You need them. We don't have them. There are lots of options, from annual rentals, to purchasing new and used. We'll talk more when the season starts. 

Coaches: our coaches are NCCP (National Coaching Certification Program) Cross Country Skiing Certified Community Coaches and Learn 2 Train.

Want to help? Wildwood Jackrabbits is volunteer led and run. We are always looking for volunteers to help coach (or help the coaches coach) or just help organize things. If this is you, or you'd like more information please emails us.
