Safety Training

2024 Youth Snowmobile Safety Training Schedule: Due to lack of snow, all scheduled youth snowmobile safety classes have been cancelled.

Youth riders must complete their online Minnesota Snowmobile Safety Course prior to the hands-on training.  Register for your online course here:  Official Minnesota Snowmobile Safety Course | SNOWMOBILEcourse.com

Our Club hosted two (2) youth snowmobile safety training events at our Chisholm clubhouse during the 2022-2023 season.  Nearly 50 kids participated in the training courses.

Special thanks to Conservation Officer Marc Johnson for participating in the training and talking to the kids about snowmobile safety.
