Year of Birth: 2011-2012
Our Bunnyrabbits program is directed at children four and five years old (the ‘Active Start’ stage of athlete development). This is the first level of the program. The objective is to introduce cross-country skiing and a healthy lifestyle associated with organized activity and active play. The program is designed to develop fundamental movement skills (with a focus on balance and agility), coordination, self confidence, imagination and social skills. It encourages children to be active and helps them develop an awareness and appreciation of our natural environment.
Sessions are offered on Sundays at Whistler Olympic Park and will be meeting at the cross country technical building.
Sundays, 10:30-11:30 a.m. at Whistler Olympic Park (1 hour)
10 sessions: December 11,18, January 8,15,29, February 5,12,19, 26, March 5

Ski equipment can be rented at Whistler Olympic Park. For second hand equipment, the club is hosting a Nordic ski swap on Saturday Oct 1 at the Adventure Centre. Valhalla Pure, Source for Sports and Whistler Olympic Park all sell Nordic ski equipment.
Due to the young age of Bunnyrabbit participants, a parent/guardian may be asked to participate in some sessions, depending on your child’s comfort level and at the discretion of the coach.
In addition to our programs, the club hosts a number of events throughout the winter. We are a community club and the success of our programs and events is built on parent participation.
