CXC YOUTH CUP

The CXC Youth Cup is sanctioned and scored by the Central Cross Country Ski Association (CXC), and features a series of eleven events in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Developed in cooperation with the Minnesota Youth Ski League and the Midwest cross country ski coaches, the CXC Youth Cup started in the winter of 2015 to promote the growth and development of junior cross country ski racers, and to expose young athletes to the fundamental building blocks required for cross country ski racing.

The series creates a festive environment that motivates junior athletes ages 10-13 (U12 and U14 age divisions) to succeed in attaining their performance goals. Athletes will meet many new Nordic friends, and learn how to successfully progress through the competitive skiing pipeline with the support of friends, families, and race organizers.
