Development and promotion of Nordic skiing opportunities for Wisconsin youth and junior skiers.
The League is comprised of both school and club based teams located in communities across the state. The League organizes camps, races, and Nordic events for athletes in 5th through 12th grade.
Each February the League hosts Wisconsin High School and Middle School Nordic Skiing Sprint and Distance Championships with over 400 athletes participating on 33 middle school and high school member teams.
The structure and format of each Wisconsin Nordic Ski Team varies, depending on the school and community involvement with each program. School-based athletes are often eligible to earn a school varsity letter, whereas, club-based teams earn specialty team awards. Athletes of all skill and development levels are encouraged to participate. The fees, schedules, and team expectations revolve around the design of each individual team.
