CROSS COUNTRY SKI PROGRAM 

 Again, this winter the Winthrop Area YMCA and Winthrop Plays Outside will

sponsor a Cross Country ski program led by Coach Ed Van Tassel for Boys and Girls in Winthrop ages 8 to 13 years old.

 This year there will be two groups. A learn to ski group and a racing group. The racing group will be geared toward middle school age kids who already know how to ski and want to take their skills farther. The program will be held at the Guerrette Family Trails at Winthrop HS.

The program will start January 3rd and run through February 24th. The learn to ski group will meet on Mondays from 3:30-4:30. The racing group will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:30-4:30. Saturday practices for both groups will be determined at a later date.

The racing group will be looking to do 3-4 races and a schedule will be available soon.

Participants will need cross-country skis, boots, and poles, we do not have any equipment. Pretty much any equipment will work for the learn to ski program, the racing group will need more specific equipment.

Program fee will be: Learn to Ski - $25 - Racing Program - $50 Fees will cover the cost of grooming and wax supplies for the racing team.
