A provincial/territorial event designed to bring young skiers together for a weekend of cross-country ski competition and fun, encourage achievement through team effort and encourage good ski technique.
Divisions with a bona fide "provincial' Midget Championships for elementary school age children will be provided with awards for each participant.
If your division has a Midget Championships on its competition calendar, encourage your club to send a team. If your division does not offer this event, perhaps your club would consider hosting it!
