Challenge Group
The Avalon Nordic Ski Club's Challenge Group, a cross country ski training group for youth 13+ (as of Dec 31 or thereabouts), runs throughout the fall and winter sessions. We'll be running, rollerskiing, hiking, ski striding with poles, strength training, stretching and having way too much fun before moving onto skis this winter. No prior skiing experience is necessary. This year we will be meeting on Tuesday and Thursdays from 1745-1900, and Saturdays from 0915-1030 (most of the time). Contact head coach Erik Charron at erikcharron@gmail.com or by phone at 746-6436 for further information.
