The Birkie is Coming!

The Birkie legend made its way to Goldbar last Saturday, thanks to Brain and Cam from the Canadian Birkebeiner Society. Jackrabbits and parents learned about the legend and about the upcoming new Birkie Sunday event.

Monday Jackrabbits begins tonight at Goldbar.

Monday Jackrabbit families,

Due to the conditions at Victoria park, we will be moving the Monday class to Goldbar 5.30-7pm. We will meet at the pavilion there. Please ensure your skis are waxed (if needed) and ready to go for the conditions. It does look like it will be a bit cooler on Monday evening than this weekend so please ensure your children and dressed for the conditions with multiple layers. It does cool off quickly when the sun goes down. The forecast is for snow on Tuesday so hopefully we can get some grooming at Victoria and be back there the following week. Don’t forget your mugs for hot chocolate after class.

Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Biathlon for Beginners


A combination of cross country skiing and small-bore shooting; the thinking man’s endurance sport.

Biathlon Bears:

This is an introductory program designed for 8-15 year olds who have some ski-skills but have never done Biathlon before. There are complementary programs available for Jack Rabbits, JR-Plus and Track Attack skiers. If this brochure whets your appetite, come out and see us at the Range in August or early September.

It’s Child’s Play, Dummy!

The Biggest Risk Is Keeping Them Indoors:

This is the title of the 2015 ParticipAction report on children and physical activity. This probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise to ENSC parents, but you need to tell all your friends and neighbours to read the report and watch this video.
