Central Minnesota Youth Ski Club Encourages Kids to Stay Active in Winter [VIDEO]

 

ST. CLOUD – Every Sunday through the second half of winter the Central Minnesota Youth Ski Club has been meeting at Riverside Park to teach kids the fun and basics of cross-country skiing.

The club has nearly doubled in size compared to last year. Around 60 kids aged 4-14 attend the weekly meets. The club is focused on teaching skills and techniques needed to become a better cross-country skier.

Skiers are divided into six different levels depending on their age and skill. Nicholas Snavely is the Coordinator for the club, he says each group gets its own separate lesson.

“We go over a lesson with the kids depending on what level they’re in,” Snavely says.

The club encourages kids to get active and outdoors during the winter. Snavely adds that cross-country skiing is a very active and healthy activity you can do your entire life.

“You probably can’t beat it when it comes to burning calories and getting good exercise,” Snavely says.

The club meets two more times this year. You can find more information on the club and how to register for next year on their website.
