WELCOME TO TNR - KICKOFF DOCUMENTS
TONKA NORDIC RACING is a varsity team sport with individual scoring. Both the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams have 14 boys and 14 girls for a total of 56 skiers. Although we practice together, on race days boys and girls ski separately. Lake Conference race format is freestyle (skate) one week, classic (traditional) the next week throughout the season. Therefore, to compete in Varsity or JV1, skiers need to ski both disciplines.
The JV2 squad is for new, less experienced skiers as well as student-athletes that know how to ski but are not at a JV1 level. These skiers may ski one discipline (skate or classic). Students will still race at every meet.
TNR is a competitive varsity Nordic racing team. All who register for Nordic are expected to compete at the appropriate level. There is the potential for movement between the three different levels, so "Work Hard. Have Fun. Go Fast"!
