2020/2021 Bill Koch League: Registration starting in late September
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! We have two programs. The Regular BKL program for kids K-8th grade and the Middle School Program (Grades 6th-8th).
Regular BKL Program:
We meet TWICE a week on Fridays and Sundays from December 11th- February 21st. With a break for the Holidays (No practice Dec. 25th and 27th).
Due to Covid we have changed a few things for this years programming. Each child will pick a day for the lesson (either Friday or Sunday). We will split the kids into groups of 15 for the lessons with Heather! The other practice time and the day that they don’t have the lesson will be spent with the parent volunteers doing a mixture of adventure skis and fun activities. Max 90 skiers in this program (we have to be very strict on this number this year!).
Regular BKL groups, age K-8th grade (groups based on age and ability) will meet on:
- Fridays 3:45-5:15 PM
- Sundays 2:00 – 3:30 PM
Parents, take an active role in the program. Whether you are a seasoned skier or not, there is a job for you! Please sign up early! Click here to go to the sign up page (opens in a new tab – close when finished to return)
There are opportunities throughout the season for all skiers (K-8) who wish to experience racing and are welcome and encouraged to participate in local races NENSA YOUTH RACES and the annual BKL Festival at the end of the season! Click here to register for the Bill Koch Festival
