XC Bragg creek ski club is pleased to offer the Train 2 Train program which follows the Cross Country Canada ski program- advancing young skiers into a more competitive ski environment. At this stage, the skier has more than likely been involved in classic and skate skiing for some time including race event competitions. Expectations for longer training seasons, including off season dry land training, are common at this level as sports specialization occurs. This program is designed for athletes who wish to race and develop competitive ski skills in both skate & classic skiing. Athletes will be placed into cohesive skill set groups decided by coaches and may be moved around as the year progresses and skiers develop (not based on age or friendships).
