NEW fundraising opportunities are coming for the 2024/2025 season!


Individual fundraising: Grocery bagging at Cub

Individual fundraising opportunities allow skiers to earn money and offset the cost of the Nordic skiing season Booster Club dues.

There are several days scheduled at Cub grocery stores, where athletes may sign up to bag groceries. Shifts are two hours long, and four athletes are allowed to sign up for each shift. Each shift requires one parent volunteers.

Athletes should sign up for only one slot across the different days available, so that everyone who wants to has an opportunity to bag groceries. Should there be vacant spots remaining, the Booster Club will notify everyone of those opportunities.

Athletes will sign in upon starting and ending their shift. Athletes will introduce themselves on behalf of the ISD 196 Nordic Ski Team and offer to bag groceries for customers, and customers will make donations (we hope!). The day's donations will be added together, divided by the number of volunteering athletes, and distributed to the athletes by the Booster Club.

More information will be available to skiers that day.

Check the TeamSnap calendar to see the days and locations available! Note to varsity skiers: Be sure to schedule around your Saturday practices.
