The goal of the Nordic Rocks for School Program is to introduce a new generation of children, Kindergarten thru 6th grade, to the excitement found in the sport of cross country skiing. By providing elementary and middle school students an opportunity to experience Nordic skiing during the school day, with their teachers and classmates, they will quickly learn health and lifestyle benefits associated with exercise and outdoor winter fun.

Robbins Elementary School joins a growing list of schools across the Midwest to become part of the CXC Nordic Rocks for Schools Program. In two short seasons, the CXC Nordic Rocks for Schools program, along with the Knicker Nordic Ski Bumps program in Wausau, Wisconsin have made an impact on thousands of new skiers. The future looks bright. There are over 3,500 elementary schools across Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan with an interest in teaching children the joy of winter sports.
