MyXC adds Adaptive Programming

SkiSparks Clubs are adding registration for adaptive youth for the 2018-19 season. Look for the "Adaptive Skier" selections as part of club registration.

Youth with physical disabilities that may limit the use of poles/s or lower leg impairments, visual impaired youth and sit skiers* are welcome. All skiers, adaptive and non-adaptive, will be in the same programming, with appropriate modifications made when necessary. 

Skiwerx Ski X Results

We had a great time at Wirth Park on Saturday Feb 10th with Ski X (timed obstacle course) as part of the Skiwerx Series. 40 kids helped us test a new course on a beuatiful sunny day. If you missed it, you still have a chance, as we will be running this event again as part of Midwest jr Champs. 

Results linked below. Photoset arriving soon.

As leaders of SkiSparks programs we are very in tune with the weather.  Besides teaching kids how to ski, we also want to teach kids (and their parents) how to enjoy winter and be outside….even when its quite cold.  There are a lot of health benefits to being outside in the winter, but we need to do it safely of course (and all of you are experts at this!).

MyXC Community Infrastructure Matching Grants

What: MyXC Community Infrastructure Matching Grants
Grant money can be used for grooming and snow making equipment that primarily supports nordic skiing. Building projects/upgrades are also allowed if nordic skiing is the primary use. Projects that are not entirely dedicated to nordic skiing may be funded at a lower level.

Who: MyXC Clubs
All MYSL clubs are eligible. Grants will be limited on a yearly cycle to $3000 total for all awardees. $1000 maximum per club.

Birkie Foundation and MYSL Partner to Provide Equipment Grants

The American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation (ABSF) has expanded their Skier Development Grants program to  include up to three matching grants (MYSL and ABSF both award up to $1000) for equipment for MYSL SkiSparks or Skiwerx Clubs. For more details and how to apply :

We are very happy to be working with the Birkie to expand the opportunities for youth skiing in the Midwest!
