The FIS Youth and Children cross country skiing committee wants to conduct a survey amongst young athletes (birth year 2002-2009) in order to get a better view of athletes’ thoughts about cross country skiing. These views help FIS to evaluate the current status as well as to determine the direction that cross country skiing should be taken.

The result of this survey will be revealed and shared in the FIS Congress meetings in May, and all nations participating will of course get the results for their own nation.
