Alberta Youth Championships

XCBC’s annual Alberta Youth Championships take place at West Bragg Creek trails. This is the premiere event for youth skiers, providing an opportunity for them to stay in camp over the weekend, meet new skiers from other clubs and compete for club pride in three different ski events. AYC is often the highlight of youth skiers’ involvement in cross country skiing!


Skiers will arrive at Camp Horizon on Friday night, and be bussed out to West Bragg Creek Trails Day Use Area to compete in a classic Kings Court sprint race and dress-up relay on Saturday followed by a banquet, DJ and guest speaker back at camp. Sunday features a wave start skate distance race and presentation of Club banners. Prizes are given for the top 10 finishers in each year of birth and every racer scores points for the Club aggregate awards (Small and Large Club banners up for grabs!). We want to see as many XCBC skiers take on this challenge!
