Stantec Lynx Program is for young skiers aged 8 to 12 y.o who wish to improve their overall cross-country ski skills and share funs moments in a group environment.
Cross Country skiing is a sport that anyone can learn and enjoy. It promotes a healthy lifestyle, develops friendships and is an activity that people can enjoy throughout their life.
This will be a multi-week program with the emphasis on improving the skiers’ classic ski skills and will also introduce and improve skate skiing.
The aim is to establish a fun program that will enhance the skiers’ enjoyment of the sport and increase their overall ski skills. Sessions will have a base element of skill instruction as well as plenty of time simply skiing with the group but will also make use of games and drills to enhance learning, improve fitness and enjoyment. While we will encourage Lynx Squad skiers to enter races or events if they are interested, this is not a racing group and is not intended to train skiers to race.
In 2019, we will be expanding the options for the Lynx Program. Families may choose:
“Lynx 1” – a one day per week option that will focus on high paced game and drills on trails immediately surrounding the Chalet.
New for 2019 will be a “Lynx 2” program – Athletes will be all together on Wednesdays (Lynx 1 & 2 combined), and will have an added practice that uses more of the trail network and provides opportunities to apply the technique and explore in a coach-supported environment.
