Alaska Pacific University Nordic Ski Center is a year-round training center committed to creating and supporting elite athletes at the National and International level. The program is currently accepting applications from dedicated athletes for the upcoming 2007/2008 ski season. We have three levels of membership and are recruiting for all levels:
Elite Team: Skiers who have shown success at the national level and have goals of international/world cup success.
Development Team: Skiers who have shown regional and (some) national success who wish to improve their national ranking and aspire to be elite skiers.
*APU also has an â€œEarly Honorsâ€ program which invites high school juniors to finish their last year of school at the University earning high school and college credit simultaneously.
Training Team: Student/athletes who enjoy the sport of cross country skiing and wish to improve their skills as skiers while living in a vibrant Nordic community.
Athletes at any of the three levels are highly encouraged (but not required) to be students at Alaska Pacific University. APU is a fully accredited 4-year University which also has some graduate degrees. Check out the school at: http://www.alaskapacific.edu/
