Booster Club Board & Volunteers

The ISD 196 Nordic Ski Team is supported by a large number of parents making up the Booster Club Board and others volunteer positions throughout the season. Volunteering is a great way to support your skier, meet other parents, and get more involved in the ISD 196 skiing community. There will be additional opportunities to volunteer during the season, which will be communicated via TeamSnap. Contact Steve Swenson ( or 612.801.2960) to volunteer or with questions.
