The Nancy Greene Ski League (NGSL) Under 8/10 is designed for kids five to nine years old. Fundamental skills are introduced at this level in a safe and fun environment through gate training and versatile skier development. The goal for kids who progress through the program is to develop speed control and confidence in a variety of terrain creating confident skiers in and out of the race course.
Skiers are grouped with others within their age and skill range and are coached and supervised by professional CSCF coaches. Within their groups, the skiers will develop strong technical and versatile skiing skills following Alpine Canada’s Snow Star Program. Skiers will also be able to participate in a number of fun and competitive team-based races over the season.
The only requirement for joining the Entry Level Program is an intermediate skiing ability. Children need to be able to get on an off of a chair lift without assistance, and the ability to ski an intermediate run under control. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the club.
Please note that we cannot accept children who have not skied before or are beginner level skiers. If your child is either of these please have a look at the programs offered by the Mount Seymour Snow School.
