Racing Rocks! is a skill development program dedicated to introducing children to the fun aspects of competition. A Ski Tournament, a Team Sprint or a Nordic Ski Cross event are one day extravaganzas of fun competition and special activities, on snow or on rollerskis!
Roller Ski Rocks!
Rollerskiing is the most specific way of skiing in the summer (other than skiing on glaciers…) and therefore provides skiers with the opportunity to develop and refine their ski technique year round.
CCC is launching a new Racing Rocks! event aimed at athletes at the end of the Learning to Train (L2T) stage: Roller Ski Rocks! RSR! events can come in various shapes and forms. See for more information.

If your division has a Midget Championships on its competition calendar, encourage your club to send a team. If your division does not offer this event, perhaps your club would consider hosting it!
