Stantec Lynx Program
Lynx squad is for young skiers aged who wish to improve their overall cross country ski skills and fitness in a group environment.
Cross Country skiing is a sport that anyone can learn and enjoy. It promotes a healthy lifestyle, develops friendships and is an activity that people can enjoy throughout their life.
This will be a multi week program with the emphasis on improving the skiers’ classic ski skills and will also introduce and improve skate skiing.
The aim is to establish a fun and challenging program that will enhance the skiers’ enjoyment of the sport, increase their overall ski skills and improve fitness. Sessions will have a base element of skill instruction as well as plenty of time simply skiing with the group but will also make use of games, drills and relays to enhance learning, improve fitness and enjoyment. While we will encourage Lynx Squad skiers to enter races or events if they are interested, this is not a racing group and is not intended to train skiers to race.
