Please note that JDS is by invitation only through After Schools Club, Sunday Kids Club and Huntly Nordic Ski Club.

JDS is a squad for youngsters that aims to improve their classic and skate technique on both cross country skis and roller skis. Week by week they will be taught in small groups with a qualified instructor who will help the youngsters to improve their skills, and work towards gaining one of the many skills awards at the end of all the sessions. Sessions will involve ski touring, technique work, agility, games and most of all fun!

When there is snow in the forest, JDS will be taught up there to allow the youngsters to further improve their skills on REAL snow!

Once they have worked their way through all the levels and received the highest award, they may get the invitation and opportunity to train with the British Development Squad which is part of the British Nordic Ski Team.

JDS runs from 10am - 2pm on the dates above.
