The fantastic Junior Racers on their home turf in January 2013.
The Junior Racing Team is a competitive program that guides dedicated athletes towards the pursuit of excellence in nordic sports. This team consists of 13-19 year old athletes interested in pursuing the skills necessary to participate and compete at the provincial Junior level and beyond.
Junior Racers work hard on a daily basis and follow a monitored and comprehensive program that is designed to meet each individual’s goals.
