Year of Birth: 2004-2007
Our Track Attack program is directed at children ages 10-12 (the ‘Learning to Train’ stage of development). This is the third level of our Youth Skill Development Program. Track Attack is designed to further develop and refine all the cross-country ski skills, including speed, power and aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility, as well as develop good ski habits.
The objective of our Track Attack program is for the participants to become technically competent cross-country skiers, and to utilize those skills to begin a lifetime of enjoying a wide range of Nordic activities.
The ski sessions will alternate between skate and classic technique.
There will be two sessions offered, Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings at Whistler Olympic Park.

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. We welcome volunteers in any role, from coaching to helping at an event, planning and admin roles and more. Please contact the club if you would like to volunteer.
