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 are split into ability/age/gender coaching groups (U10, U12, U14).

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. Sunday we have mountain bike sessions meeting at Wirth Trailhead.

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
