We look forward to seeing all of our EMBK skiers and families at our second all-club practice at Leo J. Martin Ski Track this Saturday, Dec 9, from 9am – 10:30am. Please look at our website before all practices to get the final call on practice type (e.g. dry land, skate, classic or combo) easternmassnordic.org/ .
Also, please remind your kids to dress in layers, wear good running shoes, bring the appropriate ski gear (per website instructions) and bring their water bottles.

8:30 am Pick-up trail passes in the cafe (for pre-register) or submit applications

We will hold another waxing clinic for parents during practice on Saturday. We plan to focus on on the art of kick wax and klister application, followed by “frustration free removal.” If you are new to skiing or just have questions, please stop by the wax tent at 9:15 am.
Parent Volunteers are Essential: Test the Waters With Easy, Fun Volunteer Opportunities (Info Session, Dec 9, 10am in Cafe)
Our club is entirely parent-run. We need all families to donate a parent’s time and skills to keep EMBK running smoothly. We still have vacancies in a number of simple, but critical volunteer roles.
As examples, being a Country Parent or helping with weekly games at practice, are great ways to jump into the EMBK volunteer waters! Come learn more about various volunteer opportunities in the Cafe at 10am on Dec 9.
Also, if you selected “country parent” as your potential volunteer interest during registration, please join us for this discussion for more details about your responsibilities. If you cannot make the meeting, please contact Josie Petersen, our Country Parent Coordinator.

EMBK introduces young skiers to the joys of cross-country (XC) skiing through our program of coaching with a low skier-coach ratio and instruction methods developed for young skiers. The club has both racing and non-racing components. Cross-country skiing is a low-impact sport and is great cross-training for runners, soccer players, and other young athletes! No prior XC skiing experience is necessary. Learn more
