We need you!

EMXC Juniors is primarily a volunteer-run organization. Our volunteers contribute to the warm energy of our club.

Caregivers and other cross-country ski enthusiasts keep the skis waxed, athletes fed and hydrated, administrative I’s dotted and T’s crossed – all part of what makes our club resilient and fun!

As part of the registration process, all caregivers will be asked to identify a volunteer “committee” to join. Each committee has a lead volunteer, and a group of supporting volunteers. Check out the committee notes shown below and volunteer when you complete the registration process. We appreciate your contributions!
