  • We are proud of our record with this program. Teacup Nordic athletes frequently place well in JNQ races and some go on to compete at Junior National Championships. Former athletes from this program continue to ski out of a love for this sport as competitors, coaches, or simply a lifestyle choice.  Other participants have used this program as an effective wintertime cross training outlet to enhance their primary sport of running, rowing, paddling, cycling as well as other endurance sports. 
  • The coaching staff is led by United States Ski Association (USSA) Certified Nordic Coaches and are SafeSport certified as well. Our experienced coaching staff aim to educate and share our love for the sport, giving athletes the tools to incorporate sport into their lives for years to come.
