About the Riverview JackRabbits Program
The Riverview Jackrabbits is part of Riverview Community Nordic and affiliated with the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba and Cross Country Canada.
The Riverview Jackrabbits program has been promoting family cross-country skiing in our neighbourhood for over 15 years. 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.
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.
Want to lend a hand? The Jackrabbits skiing program relies on 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 $85.00 for one child. Membership in the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba must also be purchased ($18 – individual or $32.00 – family). CCSAM membership provides insurance and supports the purchase of club equipment and supplies, training costs, and trail grooming expenses.
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. Rental fees are $120 for each set of equipment (boots, poles and skis).
Used equipment can be found on Kijiji and Facebook Marketplace.
