 Track Attack and Lynx Programs

Registration for Winter Track Attack and Lynx is open!

Track Attack Program Outline

Coordinator: Nathan McFadyen

Track Attack is a three year program for ages 9-13 and is the final step of Cross Country Canada’s Skill Development Program. Participants should have completed Jackrabbits Level 4. Track Attack is a more in-depth program with winter lessons on Saturdays as well as a fall training camp, fun races, waxing clinics etc. Further developing skate and classic skills and technique, and providing knowledge of more far-reaching aspects of skiing, the track attack athlete will come away from the program confident in all aspects of the sport.

Track Attack Fall Program:

4 two-hour Saturday sessions

Location:   Avery Beach Park
Dates:  October 16 and 23, and November 6 and 13, 2021
Time:  1:00 pm
Cost: $90
Description:  The program consists of ski-specific exercises and no weights or gym membership is required!  There are 4 different workouts that are meant for building cardiovascular capabilities, strengthening, flexibility and most of all teamwork!

Winter Session
Registration is now open!

8 sessions starting January 8th or 9th.  No sessions on Family Day Weekend.

Time Slots (Pick one):
Saturday mornings: 10:30 -12:00
Saturday afternoons:  1:00 – 2:30
Sunday Mornings: 10:30 – 12:00

Please note:  Due to COVID restrictions there is no snack or warmup.  As a result sessions have been shortened by 1/2 hour.  There will still be the same amount of instructional time.

Fee includes:

  • Coaching by NCCP coaches
  • 8 sessions
  • Arrowhead Nordic Ski Club Membership

Track Attack Fees:
Before November 23:  $120
November 23 and later:  $145

Please Note:  Starting this year, fees do not include a Provincial Park Ski Trail Pass:

The Park fee structure has changed.  An Ontario Parks vehicle permit is required to enter the park. However it is no longer necessary to purchase separate passes for each individual skier in the vehicle.   As a result, trail passes are no longer included in Jackrabbit fees.   A winter vehicle pass is $60 + tax and a yearly vehicle pass is $99 + tax and must be purchased from the park.  If you purchase a full year pass now, it is good until Dec 2022!   A vehicle pass is for everyone in the vehicle so you do not need to purchase more than one for your family (unless you arrive in different vehicles). This new fee structure should result in a substantial savings for most families!
