BETHEL — The Bethel Outing Club is pleased to announce that it will be offering its 4th annual summer programming for junior Nordic skiers ages 12 & up. The seven week program runs from June 22-August 10. This youth program is designed to help cross country skiers of all abilities develop skills to improve their winter skiing.

Our knowledgeable coaching team is led by Fred Bailey and Brad Clarke, with guest appearances from other local coaches, including former US Ski Team coach Dick Taylor. They strive to create a fun environment and a good peer group for the participants to have a variety of training partners and enjoy the social aspects of skiing. They have a new structure this year to allow participants to tailor their summer training to best fit their individual needs. Participants can now choose between one, two or three evening sessions per week, with supplemental strength training available two mornings per week for older high school students.

Further details, registration and scholarship forms can be found under the programs tab on the BOC website ( Forms should be mailed to the BOC at P.O. Box 637 Bethel, ME 04217. If you have further questions, please contact Fred Bailey at
