The NSCF-FXC Devo Team is the ski club’s introductory team for skiers ages 10 – 14. We have 3 different sessions; summer, fall, and winter. Our program’s focus is to develop good habits and enjoyment of physical activity while establishing a strong foundation of physical fitness and athleticism that an athlete can build on throughout their athletic career.
Winter session runs from November 1st to mid-April and takes a break during the holiday season.
Practices include four coached sessions per week:
5:30 to 7:00pm Wednesdays & Thursdays
Noon to 1:30pm Saturdays*
2:30 to 4:00pm Sundays
*Saturday practices are often racing.
- Devo Winter: $900*
*Interested in our program but not ready to commit? We offer a 2 week trial period for all our programs. We also offer sibling discounts for families with multiple participants.
While many state mandates have now been lifted, NSCF is committed to keeping athletes, their families, and the greater Fairbanks community safe and healthy. We plan to continue practicing social distancing and follow much of the CDC’s recommendations.
To address the current challenges, FXC
- We will host outdoor classes and limited indoor classes for older athletes.
- Offer hand sanitizer anywhere the touching shared surfaces occurs.
- Masks are required when closer than 6 feet to others.
