Skiing Class
The Parks and Recreation Department is happy to offer ski club to Hopkins School students. The program is for Hopkinton residents grades 4-5. Students ski at Nashoba Valley Ski Area after school on five Thursdays starting January 4th, see schedule below.

Ski club is a life experience with a little skiing. For many participants, ski club is a child's first time participating in an activity without their parents. Participants learn how to navigate independently (with minimal assistance) to find their equipment, to show up on time for a lesson, to follow directions, to make new friendships, and especially to advocate for themselves and others.

Registration - Opens on October 2nd!
Please purchase the following:
1: Bus pass*$20 late fee will be applied after December 11th
2: Lift ticket or a lift ticket & lesson combination

Detailed program instructions regarding when and where to drop off equipment, dismissal instructions, departing and returning policies at Hopkins will be sent by December 21st.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!! This program runs only with the help of adult volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please submit your contact information when you register for the bus and we will get in touch with you. Or email the Hopkins Ski Coordinator Julie Leyshon  juliefleyshon@gmail.com 
Knowledge of skiing is not required, however it is useful. Please consider helping for one or multiple trips.
Equipment drop off volunteers: Thursday mornings to help move boot bags into the cafeteria.
