Fall TRAIL KIDS Programs

The Fall TRAIL KIDS Program offers fun outdoor active adventures for kids ages 7-14 years old. Coaches keep practice both challenging and fun for kids while also teaching important age developmental motor skills. Youth gain both fitness, strength and ski specific technique while also enjoying some adventures outdoors! Each session will be a mix of trail running/bounding, ultimate, orienteering, adventure races and rollerski/rollerblade sessions.

New this fall we will be offering a mountain bike program that meets Sunday afternoons at various parks in the Metro Area.

At practice, youth will be challenged with the following activities:

  • Agility and strength exercises to develop age appropriate motor skills
  • Ski specific balance and technique drills to help prepare for winter
  • Ski bounding/trail running to build endurance and power
  • Orienteering skills and competition events
  • Adventure Trail Race Series provides competition and fun adventures in the woods
  • Games, relays, ultimate and soccer mixed in throughout the sessions.
  • Rollerski/Rollerblade ski technique sessions
  • Mountain biking ( Sunday afternoon sessions only).
