Hello Bay Nordic Skiers! Snow is around the corner and it’s almost time to get the young kids on snow! This fall, a great group of dedicated skiers have been busy organizing the expansion of Bay Nordic. Our Adventure, Middle School, and High School athletes have already started the ski season participating in roller skiing, hill bounding, and general dry land practices. Over 30 kids are included with this group with most of the athletes progressing from Bay Nordic’s youth group. We are also excited to welcome some new skiers to Bay Nordic!

Youth Program (3 to 12 year olds)
If you haven’t done so yet, it’s time to get registration in for the Bay Nordic Youth Program (3 to 12 Year Olds). The 5th Year for our original program! Registration forms and information can be found at www.baynordic.org. The dates and times of our 6 youth sessions are listed under the YOUTH program and also on our calendar.
Remember, if needed, rental equipment is limited and on a first come, first serve basis. We are also coordinating volunteers and coaches so the early we have the numbers, the better.
We are only a month away before our first session.
Rental Equipment Pickup for the Youth Program – Saturday, Dec. 7th (10:00 am to Noon)
The UWGB Nordic Ski Team is prepping the skis this weekend so they will be set for snow. Rental pickup is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7th (10 am to Noon) at InCompetition Sports (2439 University Ave, Green Bay, WI 54302). Bringing the kids for boot fitting is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Youth Program Coaches Clinic/Meeting – Please Consider Giving Your Time & Talent
Youth Coaches Needed!!! We can never have too many youth coaches. All abilities are welcome. Our goal is to have fun! If the kids want to ski again, we are successful. Join us next Thursday, November 21st (Starting at 6:00pm until ???) at St. Brendan’s Inn (234 S Washington St, Green Bay, WI 54301) for our Coaches Clinic/Meeting. We will cover our typical plan for the day of the sessions, basic curriculum & games, share experiences, and enjoy the company of community skiers.
Please contact Tanya Sharp (Tanya_sharp@sbcglobal.net) to RSVP for the clinic or be added to the Coaching list.
Adult Memberships & Ski Suits and Jackets
Adult membership for the 2013-14 ski season is also now available. Help show your support for Bay Nordic’s goals and receive a ski hat as part of registration (Hats are Ordered and Will Be Available Soon!). Although we have been focused on developing the youth and junior programming for the year, we do have some great plans for social activities, lessons, Yoga & Ski, and group training. Group volunteers or activity ideas are welcome.
Adult membership is important to support our long-term goals for a sustainable ski community and expanding ski opportunities. Join Us!
A Team Store for “Bay Nordic” Ski Suits and Jackets should be up and running by the end of next week. Look fast at the Reforestation Camp or at the Birkie showing your ski program pride!
