Nordic Ski Teams

Interested in enhancing your Nordic ski technique while training at a higher level? PSR has a number of groups that do exactly that.

PSR Midget Ski Team

Youth from Grades 5-8 will train approximately 3 times a week. The goal of the team is to enhance their fitness level while improving their overall Nordic skiing technique. The team competes at local Loppets, some Ontario Cup (OCup) races and the Ontario Midget Championships. This year, Temiskaming Shores will be hosting the Midget Championships.

Junior Development Race Team

Youth from Grades 8-12 will train approximately 6 days a week, for most of the year. Training consists of summer training which involves jogging, cycling, hill bounding, Nordic walking, roller skiing and core strengthening. Winter training consists of strength training, along with improving classic and free skate ski technique.

The goal of the team is to enhance their fitness level and compete at the provincial and national level with
other Nordic skiers across the country. Participation at local Loppets is encouraged. O-cup race information can be found on the Ontario Cross Country Skiing website www.xco.org.

Timmins High and PSR have joined forces to host the 2014 OFSAA NORDIC Championships (Ontario High School Championships) from  Monday, February 24 to Wednesday, February 26, 2014.
