The Skills Development Program (SDP) is comprised of three levels for kids and is a fun winter activity for ages 2 years and up. Levels: Bunnies, JackRabbits, Yeti Trackers/Track Attack (TA). You can register downtown at Rocky Peak Adventure Gear, at club functions, the rental shop and on-line – website: www.caribooski.ca .
We have a new racing initiative – we would like to encourage youth to travel to some races as a team this year! -All SDP skiers are encouraged to participate in the Hallis Lake Loppet and the Elementary School Races (on the calendar) in lieu of scheduled lessons. Participants must register separately for these races.
All Bunnies must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for all lessons or until the coach confirms the bunny can ski without you – please ask your coach after a few lessons
Parent participation is highly encouraged – please come and have fun skiing with the group! Tagging along behind or actively helping with the group is adored by coaches and kids alike!
Please label all equipment (especially poles) and remember that group leaders and coaches are NOT responsible to wax skis so ensure equipment is waxed before lessons begin – ask rental shop if unsure.
Arrive early and join classes promptly as groups may be difficult to locate if you arrive late
There will be waxing clinics and free parent lessons during some sessions. The dates will be announced. Skiers in Level 3 and 4 will be skate skiing and classic skiing as part of the program. Ask your coach for more information. SDP registrants receive a discount on rental equipment. Contact the rental shop for more information.
For the safety of the participants, we will not be skiing if the temperature at Hallis is COLDER than -15 C one hour before Jackrabbits starts. We will be organizing indoor training activities on these cold days and if the weather warms up, we will go out on skis. Depending on age and group structure, on cold weather days groups may go on short skis and then warm up in lodge. Unless you are contacted by your coach stating that skiing is cancelled for the day, programs will continue.
Current temperatures posted on the club’s webpage- www.caribooski.ca. Our goal is to have a minimum of eight sessions on snow through the season for each group. We will schedule additional on snow lessons later in the season if necessary.
