KEY DEVELOPMENTS THIS YEAR

·        NEW NAMES! We have renamed the Bunnies and Jackrabbit Groups to be more consistent with the BEARS brand!  See below.  The program is still the CCC Jackrabbit Program, but the TEAM names are BEARS!

·        ADULT WILDERNESS SURVIVAL PROGRAM! At the request of the families, coaches and parents, we are opening up the Wolverines Survival and touring program to adults.  There was always a very strong demand by parents to join Kelly and do some touring and wilderness skills.  

·        As a result we will have TWO groups:

o   The Wolfpack: (Age 10-12) touring, a little wilderness skills, some loppets; a fun introductory wilderness and touring group

o   The Wolverines (Age 13+ and Adults) A more advance touring and wilderness survival group, lead by Kelly.

·        ADVANCED BIATHLON TRAINING! We have developed a partnership with The Quintilio family of Barrhead, both of whom competed at the Winter Olympics in biathlon, to run a training program for the BEARS that want to pursue the racing at a higher level.  It will be for BEARS 10 years or older, that have trained/raced at least one season, or at the coach’s discretion.  The Quintilios are charging a very nominal fee directly to those families who wish to pursue it.  We are making the program known to all interested BEARS, so that DNSC families know there is a true racing path set up if they so choose to pursue it once their kids have done it for a couple seasons and show a commitment to the sport.   There are limited spots (They have built a 10 lane range for 22’s and air rifles on their property).   A number of BEARS have already started training, as well as assisting with the development, fencing, and clearing of the trails.
