About the Riverview JackRabbits Program
The Riverview Jackrabbits program has been promoting family cross country skiing in our neighbourhood for over 15 years. When volunteer coaches are available the Riverview JackRabbits program offers a Bunny Rabbits program for children ages 3 to 5 and the Jackrabbits program for children ages 6 to 10. Group sizes are dependent on the number of coaches supporting the program. With one coach for each group, space is limited in both these groups to five (5) children in Bunny Rabbits and five (5) in Jackrabbits.
The ski sessions are held behind or near the Riverview Community club so that we can be near washrooms and a heated building. We also ski on the trails found on Churchill Parkway.
Sessions schedule is to be determined once the program has established if it will be proceeding in 2021/2022. This decision is entirely based on volunteer coach availability.
If you’re interested in coaching, please contact the convener. We also need volunteers to assist with, rental gear preparation and distribution, post-session hot chocolate making and trail grooming (training provided). Volunteers are an invaluable part of the success this program has experienced over the last decade. Please consider helping in any way you can.
The cost of the program is $105 for one child (prorated for additional children in a family: $95 for the second child, $75 for each additional child in the family). Registration costs cover group membership in the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba, insurance, club equipment and supplies, and training costs.
Parents are encouraged to ski with their children and take part in the Jackrabbits sessions. Your participation will help makes skiing a positive, shared experience.
Parents are responsible for finding equipment for their children. However, a limited amount of equipment is available for rent from the Riverview Community Club. A damage deposit of $175.00 is required each set of equipment rented. Rental fees are $110 for each set of equipment (boots, poles and skis).
Information regarding purchasing ski equipment will be emailed to all Jackrabbit families. Used equipment is available throughout the city, and the Cross Country Ski Association of MB usually holds a Swap Shop each winter. Facebook Marketplace can be a good source for equipment.
