This introduction to cross-country skiing emphasizes a fun, active lifestyle and a love of the outdoors. The leader-to-skier ratios are high so that leaders can better help the kids learn to enjoy skiing!
The Bunnyrabbit Program is the first level of the Active Start stage of development (children 5 years of age and younger). Program materials include an enrolment kit, a kid-friendly, age-appropriate booklet and skill award stickers. It has been developed in parallel with the first level of the competency-based National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), which now provides coaching materials specific to the needs of this age group. The objective of the program is to introduce cross-country skiing and the healthy lifestyle associated with it through organized activity and active play.
