Challenge Group/Ski Team

The Challenge Group is for athletes 11 and up (including university-aged students) who are interested in learning to train year-round for Nordic competition. They combine trail running, ski striding and roller skiing with strength training through the "dryland" season and practice on snow as soon as possible.

All members of the Challenge Group have the option to compete on the Avalon Nordic's Ski Team, which travels across the province to compete in NL Cup Races. The Challenge Group is currently (Fall 2023)  meeting on Monday and Friday evenings for dryland training. If you are interested in joining the group please contact us at
