Strider Gliders

This after-school cross-country ski skills program is a fantastic way to introduce your child to the sport of cross country skiing. This fun, 8 week program includes age-group specific instruction, seasonal equipment rental, and a TXC Child’s Season Pass.

Program Details and Registration (Registration now live, see below)

The cost of the Strider Gliders Program is $95.

Skiers attend once a week for 8 weeks. The program begins January 8th and ends March 12th, 2018.

We strive to provide healthy physical activity regardless of the snow/weather conditions. However, if a group misses a day due to inclement weather, we will try to provide one makeup day.

Children must be at least 4 years of age by January 1st to participate. Participants are placed in groups by ability level. Your child’s skiing ability may not necessarily be aligned with his/her grade level. The groups available are:

Preschool Tuesday or Friday
Kinder Monday or Wednesday
1st Grade Monday or Wednesday
Beginner Green Skate Skiing Monday or Tuesday
Intermediate Blue Skating Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday
Intermediate Violet Skating Monday or Thursday
Advanced Red Skating Wednesday or Thursday
Biathlon Friday *add-on, only available to Blue, Violet, or Red skiers

If you have a child new to cross country skiing and who is in 2nd grade, or above, please contact Tim Hauserman at to determine your child's ski group. We will do our best to schedule your child on a day that works for you.

Strider Gliders has over 200 participants each season who are taught by more than 50 incredible volunteer instructors. Thank You instructors!
