MHRC Program Updates:

Junior Development Program Changes – Program will only be offered only on Saturdays ONLY, however, the age of participants has been increased to include all children from ages 7 to 13.

U10 Travel Team – Juniper Jam series will no longer be offered as the funding grant has expired by Freestyle Ontario. We are hopeful that this series will be replaced with invitational events; as these events become available we will post the information.  Please note there will be additional entry and coaching fees required per event.

U12/U14/16 Travel Teams – The ‘Division 2’ AOA ski racing program has changed to the SOD Cup Series (Southern Ontario Division) and the ‘Division 1’ AOA ski racing program has changed to the O-Cup Series (Ontario). The race series will look very similar to last year with approximately the same number of race events. The major difference is that there will not be the opportunity for U14/16 to qualify for O-Cup (Division 1) races during the season. SOD Cup Series participants will collect points during their race series that could qualify them for O-Cup final events (provincials) at the end of the season.

 

Pre-Season Programs:

Club Dryland Program and Advanced Fitness Program – Saturday Oct 15 Sunday Oct 23/30 Nov 13
