About the Team

Students and athletes from any school district are welcome to join the Bay Nordic’s Junior Team.  Our team welcomes and supports all athletes with or without experience in Nordic skiing.  Team members are given an opportunity to set goals for their level of participation, whether it’s to develop a lifelong healthy lifestyle, state-level racing, or pursue junior competition at the highest level.

The Junior Team is composed of two teams:

  1. Middle School (MS) Team – The team is open to grades 5th through 8th .
    1. Families of 5th grade athletes need to discuss with head coach before signing up.
  2. High School (HS) Team – Includes grades 9th through 12th.

Both programs start in October when the team begins “dryland” practices 3 to 5 days a week and transition to snow in December.  Fall sport athletes join following their school season.
