Bunnies is our program for the active 4 and 5 year old nordic skier. These young skiers are in the 'Active Start' stage of development and can mostly be found in the stadium enjoying games, stories and fun while learning basic ski skills. Occasionally these brave youngsters will venture as far as the gravel pit to take in the sunshine and maybe roast some marshmallows! Bunnies is a parent participation program and caregivers will have a great time joining in. Lessons are approximately one hour and are followed by a snack. Bunnies are invited to participate in all extra Skill Development Program events. This program fills up very fast so please register early to avoid disappointment.
Practice details are communicated using the SDP Calendar and Slack. The calendar can also be located on the CNSC website under the Events tab. Please check for this calendar closer to the session start date, as it is still under development. Winter Training Sessions will be held at Otway Nordic Center unless otherwise noted.
The success of our programs hinge on volunteer coaches and parent help in a variety of disciplines. We ask that for every child registered in the program, there is volunteer help from at least one parent. Parents are asked to find a volunteer role that best suits their schedule, interest and abilities. The club requires both new and experienced coaches at various levels, so if you are interested in coaching and don’t want to coach your own child, that’s not a problem. We’ll help you find a suitable coaching role. The club provides coach training, and you provide your time and knowledge to develop future athletes. If you would prefer a volunteer task that does not involve coaching, fantastic! We’ve got tasks for you. There is a section of volunteer opportunities on the Zone4 registration to identify your interests. Thank you to all our volunteers!
