This is a volunteer-led program, supported by MYSL’s fabulous curriculum and structure. Kids learn the basics of cross country skiing through group games, exploring the trails of the Carleton Arboretum, and focusing on skill building. We can offer rental equipment to youth wanting to try skiing for the first time.
We are a team that welcomes all swimmers in Northfield and surrounding areas. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced swimmer, you have a place on our team.
At Northfield Skating School, we encourage participation, enjoyment, and achievement in skating by fostering a positive, inclusive, and challenging learning environment. We are a U.S. Figure Skating model program and we offer programs for skaters ages 4 – adult with a full range of recreational and competitive skating and hockey goals. We collaborate with local organizations to increase programs and access to skating. We offer lessons from September – March at the Northfield Arena. We have many strong ties within the skating community and connect our students with opportunities to skate throughout the year. Skating is a year-round sport! We are community-based and nationally recognized, and our skaters build confidence and skills for skating and for life.
The Northfield Volleyball Club is designed as a developmental program for Northfield High School Volleyball. The mission of the club is to expand and accelerate the knowledge and experience of young volleyball players in creating a successful attitude that will lead to further success in the NHS Volleyball Program. This Club creates the opportunity for players to develop and improve their skills during the off-season. The practices are mandatory unless they conflict with a seasonal school event. A high level of commitment is required in order for the experience to be beneficial and successful for all.

- In-house Program, for boys and girls ages 4-8, is designed to help skaters learn the basics of hockey through recreational team play. No experience is necessary.
- Traveling Competitive Teams, offer a more advanced level of play. Players will not only further develop their skating skills, but will also work on stickhandling, positioning, and game strategy. Older beginners are welcome to start at this level, but starting hockey in conjunction with the NSS Hockey Skating and Skills class is strongly recommended for older beginners.
The Northfield Hockey Association provides a positive, competitive learning environment for all players, and teaches the virtues of athletics, such as hard work, discipline, teamwork and fun. New players at all ages are encouraged.
