Registration is now open for the new FXC Intro program offered by the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks.
FXC Intro is an entry-level program for the ski club’s popular FXC program. FXC Intro is for children ages 12 and up who are fairly new to skiing and want to get more experience, as well as get out and enjoy the outdoors.
This program is geared toward homeschoolers and will meet twice a week at mid-day. FXC Intro is excited to provide a fun team atmosphere for the homeschoolers to stay healthy and active during the long winter. The program follows the NSCF COVID-19 policy (see below).
The program will be held on Wednesdays and Fridays at Birch Hill Recreation Area from noon to 1:30 p.m. It will run from November 3 to mid-April with breaks for the Christmas and New Year holidays. Cost is $450 per skier. Sibling discounts are offered for families with multiple participants. The program includes a two-week trial period for those who want to try it out before committing to the season.
NSCF COVID-19 Policy
The NSCF board fully appreciates the health risks of COVID-19, will continue to carefully monitor the incidence of COVID-19 in our community, and will act to limit and change training when it feels that the risks outweigh the benefits of our activities.
Currently, practices are limited to 10 participants or less, and we are practicing social distancing. Face coverings are required when participants are within 6 feet of each other. Hand sanitizer is used anywhere the touching of shared surfaces occurs. Coaches exercise social distancing from athletes, wear masks when feasible, and monitor compliance of same by the athletes. Any athlete who travels out of state is not permitted to practice until after a two-week quarantine or receiving a negative COVID-19 test result. Any athlete with COVID-19 symptoms or living with someone with symptoms is not permitted to practice until 14 days after the last symptoms.
