This is my third season coaching strider gliders. The kids all love this program and have so much fun nordic skiing. I think every kid in Tahoe should get to enjoy this experience. The other volunteers I've worked with have all been fabulous too as well as the staff at Tahoe XC.

One of the best things about growing up in Tahoe! The after-school program is a great way to fit in XC instruction for young students. I'm grateful we have such a great program available for our kids here.

I have volunteered with Strider Gliders for years and now have a child moving up the ranks and nearly ready to skate! It has been such a wonderful experience for our community! I teach at the middle school which has a continuously growing Nordic team, many of whom started their experience at TCXC.

I have three children in the Strider Glider program. They all love it and are enthusiastic each week to attend. It is a wonderful program. The instructors are so positive and make it fun for the kids. It is reasonably priced and gives kids of all ages the opportunity to learn a life-long skill. Thank you for having this program and a huge thanks to all of the instructors who donate their time and energy.

My 5 year old daughter loves this program. This was her first year Nordic skiing and her first ski program. It was a great introduction to a sport that she can do for years to come. We'll be back next year. Thank you very much to Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Education ASS-Strider Gliders.

Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association has been making an incredible difference for the children in our community. They have been able to expose a significant percent of the children in out community to cc skiing. We have seen huge increases in the number of school age students participating in healthy exercise through skiing all the way through elementary and middle school. They are able to expose many low income students to skiing through the school field trip program as well as the Stride Glide program. Their work grows each year to benefit more students in our community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Class field trips, stride glide and middle school Nordic team programs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Donate additional funds for scholarships and new equipment.
