Registration for the 3rd annual SISU Endurance Team XC Ski Club is now open!
This program is available to Iron and Gogebic County youth. The goal is to get kids to participate in a fun, silent sport that they will be able to enjoy for a lifetime. We have adjusted our previous youth requirement of grades 2-12, to now include youth, grades K-12!
The club will meet at ABR Ski Trails on Sundays, January 19-March 1 from 2:00-3:30 pm. This 7-week program is open to all ability levels. The program cost is $40, with a $10 discount for each additional child (for families with more than one child). Rentals are available at ABR to youth members who do not have their own equipment (just be sure to arrive a half hour early to check out your equipment). Also, Iron County 4-H also has a great ski check out program, where club members can check equipment out to use for the whole winter (all equipment must be checked back in at the Extension Iron County office by March 31, 2020). This is a great opportunity for area youth who may be interested in xc skiing but don’t have equipment to use. It also allows youth to explore other great trail systems in our area, such as MECCA, Uller and Montreal Historical Ski Trails.
NEW THIS YEAR, if your child is an intermediate level skier and has equipment, they are welcomed to join us for Wolverine Wednesdays, which will take place at Wolverine Ski Trails, January 22-February 25 from 4-5 pm. We ask that members arrive at least 15 minutes early to ensure they are ready to ski at the start time. Any youth grades 2 and under, parents must accompany (Wednesdays only).
Want to learn more before enrolling? We will be offering a FREE TRY IT OUT DAY from 2:00-3:30 pm on Sunday, January 5th. Rentals and trail fees are included! This is a great time to introduce your child to the sport of xc skiing and to see what the SISU Endurance Team is all about.
If your child would like to join the SISU Endurance Team XC Ski Club, you will have the opportunity to register at the Try It Out Day or you can visit 4HOnline to register now.
