Track Attack

Registration for Spring Track Attack Opens April 2, 2021;  

Registration for Fall/Winter Opens June 17th for existing members;

June 21st Registration Opens to the Public

We plan to offer in person programming while following the guidelines of the Alberta Health Services, Nordiq Alberta, Nordiq Canada, Biathlon Alberta and Biathlon Canada. If these guidelines change to become more restrictive, we may need to stop in person training, and will work to resume in person training as quickly as possible.  If we must stop in person training, we may switch to some virtual training via zoom along with providing parents a training plan.  Pro-rated program fee refunds will be given if the program has to be cancelled.

Program Description

Track Attack is a skill development program aimed at improving skate and classic techniques in a fun and social environment. Track Attack will promote teamwork and personal interaction skills. Athletes will learn the basics of off season training through activities including: introduction to roller skiing, hiking, running, ski striding, body weight strength training, balance/agility and games. On snow, athletes will develop and refine classic and skate skiing techniques.


  • Lake Louise Camp – TBD

Camp costs are not included in the fees and are on a cost-recovery basis.

Track Attack will promote attendance at the following events: Alberta Cup series, Built for Speed series, Alberta Winter Games, Alberta Youth Champs and some local loppets.

Required Equipment

  • 1 pair each of skate and classic skis, poles and boots (combi boots not recommended)*
  • Grip and glide wax for all conditions
  • Drink belt, running shoes, ski striding poles (mid-chest height, downhill poles not recommended)

*Coaches will assist in sizing and selection of equipment at early season ski sales.


Foothills Nordic is able to run high quality programs for a reasonable cost due to the volunteer support from our families.  Based on the Club’s volunteer bond, ALL Track Attack parents will be required to volunteer 12 hours throughout the season.  Numerous volunteer opportunities to help with Track Attack will be available including assistance at weekend work-outs, wax support at races, and planning and organizing trips, races and non-competitive camps, events and activities.  Sign-up lists with details on volunteer jobs will be shared with parents.

For information on the volunteer bond and other volunteer opportunities available throughout the year, see Club Volunteer Opportunities.
