Not sure what NENSA does??? Here is some of what we do:

  • Coaches & TD education and symposiums
  • Bill Koch League
  • Eastern Cup racing
  • Zak Cup Masters & Club Championships
  • Marathons Series
  • New England BKL Festival
  • U16 Championships
  • Eastern High School Championships
  • NENSA Elite & Development Teams
  • New England Junior National Team
  • Eastern REG Camp
  • Nordic Rocks programing
  • Event Organizers trainings
  • Women’s Day
  • Roller ski race series
  • Supporting Clubs
  • as a resource for all things New England Nordic

All of these wonderful programs are run by NENSA, and the NENSA staff.  Without NENSA, these programs for all ages, and top notch racing in New England would not exist.

But NENSA is much more than great results ~ it is a family enjoying the Bill Koch Festival together, and it is a group of friends attending Woman's Day.  It is juniors spending time with their friends at ski practice, and BKL'ers playing games and learning a sport that will stay with them for life.  It's coaches & TD's learning new skills at our NENSA trainings, and it's Masters having fun with their friends and teammates racing at Zak Cups, Club Championships and Marathons all winter long.  It's having the challenge and opportunity to roller ski race to the top of the APP Gap in August, or against all the top athletes at Jericho in October, getting ready to start yet another great season.

To keep NENSA running, and all these great events you know and love running,  Please give as generously as you can ~ every single donation counts!  As a special incentive, any donations of $250 or more this month will receive a custom NENSA SKIDA fleece neck warmer as a thank you gift!  A special thank you to SKIDA for these incentive gifts!
