Here's how to make SkiSparks registration simple!
Every skier must bring the equipment listed below to every club meeting.
"Winter is not a season, it's a celebration." -Anamika Mishra
"There is no bad weather, only bad clothing" -Swedish Proverb
Does your skier have the right clothing?
Age 0-5 no taller than child
Age 6-8 child's height
Age 9-12 10cm taller than child
We don't recommend that children skate before age 9.
See our full sizing chart as a pdf below.
See SkiSparks Skill Levels. You can edit your children's skill level in the "Household Info" section of the registration process (even after you register). It would be very unusual to go out of the suggested age-ranges and many children stay in a level for more than one season. Peer groupings of similar age are often more important than specfic skiing ability, except in the case of an older beginner (age 11-14). If your skier has never skied before and is 11+, please register for level 3.
