Bunnyrabbit and Jackrabbit Program Outlines

The Bunnyrabbit Program (child must be 4 as of December 31, 2020 to participate) is the first level of the Active Start stage of development. It introduces children to skiing and develops their fundamental movement skills in a FUN way. It provides children with the opportunity to make ski-friends and helps them develop a positive attitude towards skiing and an awareness and appreciation of our natural environment. The Jackrabbit Program is designed for the “FUNdamentals” stage of development. The objective is for children to learn basic cross-country ski skills (both classic and skating) and to instill a lifelong interest in the sport. Instruction focuses on the ABC’s agility, balance, coordination and speed in a FUN way such as with games, theme days and ski playgrounds. Good technique habits, distance and speed challenges are rewarded using the Jackrabbit program awards. For more information visit the Bunnyrabbits or Jackrabbits page of the Nordiq Canada website.
