Momentum Mavericks - Programs for 6 - 11 year olds
Our Mavericks program is designed for kids age 6 to 11 to progress in the sport of Nordic skiing, and is all about FUN! We want to provide a cross country skiing opportunity for young people on Snoqualmie Pass to play in our winter wonderland. Mavericks skiers can range from beginners on skis to quickly advancing young racers; we tailor our sessions to accommodate all abilities, to ensure that every young skier is challenged in a way that helps them progress without feeling either held back or left behind.
Features of the Mavericks program
Open to athletes ages 6-11 (must be 6 years old by 12/31/2019 and will not turn 12 years old in the 2019 calendar year)
Program runs 6 sessions (Saturdays) starting January 11, 2020 through February 29, 2020
Three FUN races for young skiers to zoom around
What a Mavericks Day looks like
Saturdays 9am - 11am: Meet your coach at the Cabin Creek Trails (exit 63 on I-90) under the blue Momentum Northwest tent with your skis. We keep each group small and sorted into similar ability ranges so coaches each have 7-8 athletes apiece; our coaches have undergone club-led training to be the best ski mentors possible!
For the next two hours your skier will gain comfort on their skis while making new friends, learning new skills and challenging themselves with the support of their coaches. Each coach comes with a vast repertoire of activities sure to keep the group going all the way to the end.
Every session ends with hot cocoa (and the occasional snow fort construction and ski jumping contest) and smiles before heading home.

Momentum will only cancel a session if the WSDOT closes I90 on Snoqualmie Pass. If our participants cannot make it to Cabin Creek due to road closures we will schedule a make-up session.
Refunds are only available if the participant has an injury of medical condition preventing participation. A letter from the doctor will be needed explaining the injury or condition. You will be refunded for the cost of tuition minus a $40 administrative fee.
While this may seem stringent, the Mavericks program often has a wait list and program administration is handled primarily by volunteers.
