Youth After School
This program is eligible for the Child Tax Credit. In an effort to promote healthy lifestyles, the Canadian Government has passed new legislation providing a tax credit for children aged 15 years or younger (on January 1) enrolled in fitness programs. Just include our confirmation/receipt when you file your income tax and you will receive a tax credit based on expenditures of up to $500.
There is no question youth do better in school with physical activity. What better way to break up the school week with an early evening ski program one evening a week.
Our popular YOUTH AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM is one Wednesday or Thursday night a week for 8 weeks beginning January 14th or 15th. This program is designed for skiers and snowboarders age 6 - 17.
With Mount Pakenham’s certified Pros, your children are guaranteed to have quality instruction. Our learning progression, exercises and drills have been developed and tested throughout the years. Mount Pakenham’s Pros follow the CSIA and CASI Step system in order to provide you with a consistent learning progression and evaluation process. Step pins for skiers and assessment cards for boarders are presented with an evaluation of progress at each step of success. Class sizes are controlled to provide each group with plenty of individual instruction and supervised practice. Class sizes may range from a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 10. Instructors with larger groups or younger students will be accompanied by Teacher’s Assistants to help on the hill and with the use of lifts. We welcome any questions, concerns and suggestions.
Night skiing is a magical for kids. There is less traffic on the hills, which makes focusing on the instructor much easier. Children will also appreciate the beauty of the lights and the view from the summit.
Students with Special Needs and ‘Inclusion’ in Group Ski and Snowboard Lessons
We often receive requests from schools and families to accommodate children with various challenges in group lessons.
Although schools now routinely include students with significant behavioral or emotional problems that occasionally render them disruptive, special needs students may not do well in a group ski lesson.
Students with intellectual, emotional, or behavioral challenges learn better one-on-one in a private lesson setting.
Students with physical challenges, requiring an instructor with special adaptive training should consider booking private lessons with a CADS (Canadian Association of Disabled Skiers) certified instructor.
If you need to switch your child to private lessons, please speak to a reservation agent.
