Bunnyrabbits Active Start
The first level is the Bunnyrabbit Program, which is directed at children in the "Active Start" stage of development (children five years of age and younger). Program materials include an enrolment kit, a kid-friendly, age-appropriate booklet, and skill award stickers. It has been developed in parallel with the first level of the new competency-based National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), which now provides coaching materials specific to the needs of this age group. The objective of the new program is to introduce cross-country skiing and the healthy lifestyle associated with it through organized activity and active play.
In addition, the program is designed to:
- Help children develop a positive self-image.
- Be fun.
- Provide children an opportunity to make ski friends.
- Develop fundamental movement skills.
- Help children develop an awareness and appreciation of our natural environment.
