Nancy Greene Club Program
The Nancy Greene Program is aligned with Alpine Canada's U-12 skiing program. It is for skiers ages 5-12 years of age. The Nancy Greene program also offers an introduction to the alpine racing sport. It encourages kids from 8 to 12 to take part in friendly, competitive races with their peers in ability. It is often the first opportunity for kids to see what it's like to be part of an alpine race and they have the experience of being in a event of this size in a fun atmosphere.
Nancy Greene, the program's name sake, is a well-known Canadian alpine skier. Nancy Greene's official web site is www.nancygreene.com.
