COVID-19 Safety Plan: Please note the following changes for 2020-2021 season:
- Personal belongings must be kept in your vehicle. Children need arrive dressed and ready to ski. The warming hut will be used primarily as an emergency shelter.
- Each racer must carry their own snacks and water. These cannot be kept in the warming hut.
- Parents need to be available to pick up their child immediately upon the end of their lesson.
- Communication between parents and coaches about the plan for the day will be important, so that parents can easily find their children during and after the lesson time.
- Anyone requiring equipment for their children will need to ensure the equipment is picked up at least 15 minutes before the lesson time.
- The practice duration will account for limited or no access to the warming hut.
Information for Parents
Communication with parents is done through email. To be added to the list, email Julianne Trelenberg at WLCCSC_Jackrabbits@outlook.com
Our Facebook page can be accessed at: https://www.facebook.com/. “Bull Mountain Jackrabbits & Bull Mountain Ski Team”
The team follows Cross Country Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development model (LTAD) and strives to provide age-appropriate instruction and training for all skiers involved. Further information on the LTAD model can be found at crosscountrybc.ca
Ages 9 and up to whatever! Adults welcome too. Younger energetic skiers welcome.
Official season startup will be in Nov/Dec at the Bull Mt Ski trails.
Ski practices will be each Tuesday and Wednesday (from 5:45 pm to 7:00 pm). Sundays we will meet at 1:00 pm until 3pm.
We usually alternate weeks between classic and skating techniques. The Wednesday and Sunday sessions run at the same time as the Skill Development Programs.
Racing is introduced during ski practices and skiers are encouraged to develop a sport for life healthy lifestyle in a team atmosphere.
Training camps are an important part of the program for many skiers. There are age limits and skiers should be registered members of a club program for insurance reasons. Camps consist of age related sport skills, training concepts, exercise and having fun with like-minded co-athletes. Many parents assist with the coaching with these events and costs are kept as a non-profit concept.
Regional Snow and Dryland Camps – For athletes aged ~8-16 from the interior; locations and dates found on the Cross Country BC website.
Registration for the Bull Mountain Racers is $90.
- All skiers competing in the National Championships are required to have a current CCC Racing Licence.
- Skiers in Midget through Open categories, who are planning to compete in the BC Cup Series, Western Canadian Championships or Nor Ams, require either a CCC Racing Licence or a CCC Day Licence.
- Skiers competing in the Bantam age class and below, who are members in good standing with a CCC/CCBC club, do not require a day licence. However race organizers are responsible for ensuring these younger participants are members in good standing with a CCC/CCBC club.
Athletes are coached primarily by volunteer coaches. If you are interested in being involved as a coach, contact Julianne Trelenberg, WLCCSC_Jackrabbits@outlook.com
