SHREWSBURY, Mass. — Registration is open for the Shrewsbury-based Ski Ward Race Team, geared for new and developing skiers.
The team is a nonprofit junior ski racing organization whose mission is to encourage, promote and advance young athletes in the sport of ski racing. For many new and developing skiers between 5 and 17, the program is a way to improve technique, to test oneself in competition and to have fun on skis.
The weekly schedule consists of a team practice Friday nights and a ski race Sundays. The season goes from early January until early March, with two weeks off during the holiday weeks. Half the races are held at Ski Ward in Shrewsbury and the rest are held at other Eastern Massachusetts ski areas, including Ski Bradford, Nashoba and Blue Hills.
An open house will be held Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Ski Ward, 1000 Main St., Shrewsbury.
