2019-2020 Bill Koch League

​Bill Koch League is a nordic ski program designed for kids in Kindergarten through Middle School. Practice includes ski technique, fun games and adventures on the trails at Sleepy Hollow. Some kids become racers, others become back-country skiers and all will come to appreciate a great ski on fresh powder!

BKL Middle School Race Program: Sorry it’s FULL.

The Middle School race program is for skiers in grades 6-8 who are excited to learn both classic and skate skiing techniques in preparation for racing in high school. The practice sessions are more rigorous than the regular BKL program and skiers must participate in races. We are no longer taking more skiers into the Middle School program. The program is full. The regular BK program has plenty of room.

BKL Middle School Race program, grades 6-8th will meet on:

  • Tuesdays and Thursdays, December 3rd – February 20th, 3:45 – 5:00 PM
