Bunnyrabbit and Jackrabbit Programs

 

The Bunnyrabbit Program (child must be 4 as of December 31, 2020 to participate)  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.

In the Jackrabbit Program children learn both classic and skating cross-country ski skills and develop a lifelong interest in the sport. Instruction focuses on the ABC’S Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed in a FUN way with games, theme days and ski playgrounds. Good technique, distance and speed challenges are rewarded using the Jackrabbit program awards. For more info visit the Jackrabbits page of the Nordiq Canada website.
