Skiwerx Snow Dragons (Yinghua Academy)
Welcome to the Skiwerx Snow Dragons of Yinghua Academy!
We are a competitive cross-country ski team for students in grades 5-8.
Cross-country ski racing is an exhilarating and exciting sport, but it is also challenging both technically and organizationally. Skiers joining Snow Dragons should have at least one season of on-snow experience - the MYSL's SkiSparks is a great program for beginners. And families commiting to the team will need to be ready to work together.
Administration and Fees
This team is being offered through the Skiwerx program of the Minnesota Youth Ski League. The $350 fee includes a racing license, team hat, race entries, coaching, and an end of year banquet with all the other Skiwerx teams around the state. Scholarships are available through Yinghua Academy.
High-quality racing equipment that fits the skier is essential to a good racing experience. Equipment for both classic and skating is required. A good estimate of the cost of appropriate equipment is $500. Rental of all necessary equipment for the year is available for $130. Rental equipment is only available for skiers with shoe size under 42 EU and weight under 110 lbs. Larger skiers will have to provide their own equipment.
