Program dates:
Practices will begin Tuesday, December 10 and run weekly until February 27. Practice will not be held December 25, 27 or 31, but we encourage families to come ski during the holiday week!
(Dryland training for the Double Black Diamond race group will begin in mid-November.)

Program location:
Dryland practices will be held on the Dublin School Memorial Field or at the Dublin School Nordic Center.
On-snow practices will be held at the Dublin School Nordic Center. Parents are encouraged to come ski during practices!

BKL Festival:
The New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA) hosts an annual 2-day youth ski festival. This is a wonderful weekend of fun activities on skis, as well as some racing opportunities. We highly encourage skiers of all abilities to consider joining this event. This year Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center at the foot of Mount Washington is hosting the event February 29-March. More info can be found at: https://nensa.net/bkl-festival/

Ski Gear:
Monday, October 14 Gear Swap/Rossi Fit Night at Dublin School
Coaches will host an introductory meeting at 5:30pm followed by a gear swap. Bring things you’ve outgrown and sell or swap for what you need. Rossi will also be on-sight to offer discounted gear to order. Your coaches can help you with gear choices.

Parent Involvement:
We have found that the more the whole family becomes involved in skiing, the more fun the children have! We encourage parents to ski with us or head out on their own on the trails during practice. We will also be asking parents to volunteer at various Dublin School Nordic Center race events. This year the Nordic Center will be hosting the Harvard Nordic Carnival (January 17-18), as well as a qualifier race for the New England Junior National Team (February 15). It is exciting to watch high school and college racers! Our BKL program will also be hosting in-house, informal “fun races” during practices, as well as at least one home race that will be open to the greater region. We always need volunteers for these events and it is a great way to get more comfortable with the Nordic ski race community.
