Registration has begun for students aged 7 -13 interested in cross-country skiing this winter. The Eastern Massachusetts Bill Koch Youth Cross-Country Ski Club has both racing and non-racing components. Dry land, or off-snow, practices begin November 9, 3:00-4:30 at Prospect Hill, Waltham. Twice weekly on-snow practices run from mid-December through the end of February. The on-snow practices are held at Weston Ski Track near the intersection of 128 and the Mass Pike. Interested skiers can visit the club’s web site or contact contact coordinator Bonnie McEwen.

Hear those drums? The Living Root Dragon Boat crew may be off the Charles, and but pool practices are underway at the JFK Elementary School in Somerville. “We film people paddling and then review the video with them,” said organizer David Parker. “It’s really helpful to see what you look like when you paddle. Few of Dragon Boat paddlers manage to make it in 3x a week (but I can hope, right?).” Pool practices in the winter are on Saturdays at the Kennedy Pool. There’s free parking in the school lot, and it’s a short walk to the Porter Square T Stop on the Red Line. The pool entrance is in the rear of the building. Walk all the way down to the bottom floor, and you’ll find the pool. You can RSVP at their Meetup website.
