Q: I am interested in registering, but have only cross country skied once before. I am afraid I will be way behind everyone and not be ready. Should I still join?
A: Yes! This is how it is for the vast majority of Nordic skiers- they start skiing in high school. Nordic skiers are typically those who have done or do other sports and are looking for a “new” off-season (second or third sport) to get in great shape or stay fit while learning a life-time sport. It is totally “the norm” to be new to nordic skiing in high school. The level of development, competitiveness or how successful a skier wants to become depends on the motivation, desire and level of interest of the skier, not their experience. We will teach you and coach you to ski well and to race and love it!
Q. I don’t have skis. I’ve never skied before. What should I do?
A: We have our own Lakeville Nordic Team Rental program and also a great set-up with Minnesota’s best ski shops for renting or rent-to-buy or package purchase programs. Our Booster rental ski program costs: $35 for skis and $15 poles ($50 package) for first year skiers. $50 and $25 ($75 package) for returning skiers.
Q: I am a Middle School student. Should I register for the MS or HS nordic ski team?
A: If you are 7th or 8th grader and have ever participated on any HS sport or team, you should do the HS program. Others should register for MS skiing. If you are a MS skier who is new to HS sports, go with the Middle School program. If a skier want to “move up” or “move down” that is an open option.
If you have any Nordic ski items you are looking to sell, get them ready for the November 9th Parent Meeting. We will have a sale table at the meeting, along with some other information tables that night! Don’t miss out!! More info to come! Please contact Wendy Haroldson with any questions.
