Important Notes to read before you register:

  • Whistler Nordic Ski Club membership is mandatory to participate. It is not included in the fees outlined and can be purchased when registering for the program. Memberships are non-transferable and non-refundable. One parent per child in a Youth Program is required to join the Whistler Nordics in order to perform the volunteer component of the program.
  • Trail Passes are not included in the program fee. All Youth age 7 and older on Nov 26th who participate in a club program qualify for a Youth Sport Season Trail Pass IN THE AREA WHERE THEIR PROGRAM TAKES PLACE, price $35+tax! This pass is only available if you register for the program at the same time before Nov 15th, this purchase option will not be available after Nov 15th. There is no charge for a trail pass for Youth age 6 and under on Nov 26th.
    Youth Trail Pass Pick Up:
    Whistler Olympic Park – collect your pass from the Day Lodge when Whistler Olympic Park opens.
    Lost Lake – collect your pass from the front desk at Meadow Park from November 20 onwards.
    At Meadow park please tell the staff your child has purchased a pass through the ‘Whistler Nordics Youth Program Account’ and your child’s name will be on the list. Parents will need to sign a waiver for the pass to be issued and the child who is receiving the pass also needs to be present in order to have their photo taken and printed on the pass.
  • Club Cancellation policy: Program refunds due to injury/illness prior to the start of the program will be 85% of the original cost to take an administration fee and potential loss of revenue into account. Once a program has commenced no refunds can be offered. In the event of a class cancellation no refunds will be offered but we will try our best to relocate the class.
  • Volunteer Commitment: The success of our programs is built on parent participation. The expectation for parents or guardians of young athletes in the Clubs programs is that a parent or guardian will be present for at least 2 days during the season at a club event or practice. Club events will be listed in the events calendar.
  • Parents/Guardians who wish to reduce the cost of programs can apply to Kidsport.

Every child should enjoy the opportunity of a season of sport

Kidsport Whistler supports every sport in the community and is open to applications from anyone who participates in sports locally, meaning if you live in Pemberton and play hockey in Whistler, you’re still eligible. Parents can apply for a grant of up to $400 dollars annually for their kids up to 18 years old to assist with registration fees. All applications are kept confidential and are processed by the Whistler Community Services Society. Preference is given to first-time applicants.

Children requiring extra support in the form of a buddy can contact the Whistler Adaptive Sports Program.
