It’s nearly time for Mat-Su Junior Nordics to begin!  Our coaches are preparing and our volunteers are dusting off their skis.  We hope all our Junior Nordics participants are ready to hit the trails this coming week!

Junior Nordics Orientation will take place at the GPRA parking lot at the following times:

  • January 4th at 1:00 pm for M/W afternoon session
  • January 4th 5:30 pm for M/W evening session
  • January 5th at 5:30 pm for T/Th evening session

An outdoor orientation will take place near the Chalet, and skiers will end with a brief ski with their groups.  Parents and skiers should attend.  Please allow space for social distancing between family groups and wear a face covering.

A few items of business to help orientation run smoothly:

  • Health and safety is of special importance this year.  It is the goal of MSSC to have a fun, successful season.  Adhering to the guidelines in the COVID-19 mitigation plan is the responsibility of both participants and volunteers.  Please follow the guidelines closely.  Download the Covid Plan 
  • ALL SKIS LOOK THE SAME!  Sorry to yell, but it’s true!  Don’t assume that because the skis and poles are supposed to be attached to your skier that they’ll stay attached until you pick your skier up!  Please use blue painter’s tape/permanent marker and write your child’s first and last name on all skis and poles before orientation night.
  • For returning Junior Nordics skiers:  you need to move UP one level from the group you skied with last year.
  • For skiers new to the program:  Our head coaches will be helping you determine which group is most appropriate for you during orientation.  Age and ski experience will be taken into account.
  • All groups starting spots are spread way out in the stadium this year to allow for social distancing. Check this map to see where your group will be starting.  Coaches will also be leading groups to their start spots during orientation.Click here for larger image
