Nordic Club General Info

Once I figure out how to make a new tab, I'll put the Nordic Club info there (I'm not computer savvy).  Meanwhile, everyone (Club member or no) gets to read this.  I'm reposting this information to reply to a few questions I've had lately.

For youth grades 7-12, this is the second year of the Rexburg Nordic Club. 

Registration is open all season, meaning anyone can join in at any time, no previous experience necessary. Participants need to register through the Rexburg City Recreation Department (it's $10).  



The Rexburg Nordic Team provides opportunities for youth in grades 7-12 to learn a new sport or continue developing as cross-country skiers through organized team practice. During team practices, members will learn technique and develop endurance, regardless of their personal experience levels.  Both skate and classic techniques will be taught. Participants may also have the option of competing in local and area community races (you have to pay your own race fees). This is a great way for youth to stay active during the winter months. On days with no snow, we will hold dry-land practices at the Teton Lakes Golf Course.

No previous experience needed, all levels welcome.  Dress warmly in layers with good gloves.

NOTE: Skis can be stored on site. While the Ski Shed is locked, we make no guarantees on the security.  Students may have the option of riding the bus to the golf course for practice.  Please check with the school district transportation department for information.


Grades 7-12


M & Th Practice, excluding Holidays and school closure days.  No practices over Christmas Break.


4:15-5:00/5:10. Once we have more daylight, we may extend to 5:30 (probably mid-January).


December 7-February 25, as weather permits (if there's no snow, we can still do dry-land training.  If it's a blizzard, we may cancel that day.  Check the blog for updates). 


Kids are responsible for their own skis, boots and poles.  The City skis have all been loaned out, but there are plenty of other options for kids to get gear.  You can borrow, buy or rent skis.  Rentals can be done on a daily basis through BYU-I's Outdoor Resource Center (the ORC) or seasonally through Forrest Southam:
