ASD High School Racing
The high school Nordic skiing practices and races are a program of the Anchorage School District. The program offers after-school lessons.This program is also a non-cut program, meaning any child, male or female, may ski and race on their school’s team. ASD contracts with the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage to organize and officiate the races that occur during the winter months beginning in November typically and ending in February.
Give your kid a break and have more fun and stay warmer on race day. Join the Green Grunts and spend your day supporting the racers. The “Grunts” meet for breakfast and work together to make the race a great experience for all racers (first to last), families, and coaches. There is a lot of work to do on the snow and in the woods. We even have inside jobs before race day. And the skier in your family may be glad you have something better to do than hover over them as they try to focus for their race.
Highlights from the ASD mitigation plan pertaining to racing:
- Masks worn by all coaches, volunteers and athletes while inside.
- Masks are encouraged outside by everyone.
- Teams are allowed to have walled, heated tents in the stadium area, but no open flame heaters.
- Teams are encouraged to only offer prepackaged food in their tents.
- Ski waxing should be done in the stadium area in an outside tent. The waxing bunker is reserved for bathroom use and kid warm up area.
- In the event of a potential exposure, coaches will contact their school administration. If the administration is unavailable, coaches will contact ASD Healthcare Services Directly at 907-742-4136.
