Notes about BKL Beginners Program:
* We encourage parents to put on skis and join their child(ren)’s group.
* Parents can sign up to be group leaders. Knowledge of ski technique is not necessary, you just need to be willing to have fun and play games with kids. Weekly plans for skiing and games will be provided. Parents who sign up to be group leaders can have one child participate in BKL or Bobcats at no charge. Please email Britta (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details and directions on how to sign up.
* Let us know if your child has a sibling(s) participating or has a special friend that they would like to be grouped with. We will work to accommodate your requests.
