The Clock

Goal:  Skiers jump with skis to match the time of a clock as called by the coach.    

Players: 3 – 20

Equipment: Flat stadium or slight slope for difficulty, no poles.   

Setup:  Create a large circle of skiers with plenty of room to move.  Place the coach in the center of the circle. 

Rules:  The coach is 12:00 o’clock.  Everyone starts by facing the coach.  The coach calls out a time on the clock and skiers must jump to match the hands on a clock.  Ex 6 o’clock requires a 180 degree turn. 

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank to all of the athletes from the Fondeurs Laurentides cross country ski club for their time and enthusiasm in participating in the creation of these videos, filmed in the Laurentians north of Montreal, Quebec.
