Attention North Country students & parents!

For over a century, athletes from the North Country have stood atop the Podium in sports like Skating, Ski Jumping, Luge, Bobsled, Cross-Country Skiing, and Hockey. You may not know that some residents have never even tried one of these exciting activities!

ORDA is providing an opportunity for area youth to experience Lake Placid’s facilities and learn more about these unique winter Olympic sports. The link below provides the dates and times for the various sports that we are offering during the JAGS Try it Days. Check them out and then sign up for one or all of the Try It days/sports. Limited availability – so advanced sign-up is important. You will be notified once we receive your sign-up form if the program is closed out, otherwise, we’ll see you at the Jags Try- It Days.
