Now in its 103rd year of ski jumping in the area, the club is still active and strong. Unlike the bygone era, ski jumping these days is a year ‘round sport, and Coleraine is one of five Midwestern venues equipped with plastic landing hill surfaces required for summer jumping. We have plastic surfaces on our 20-meter jump for the youngsters and our 70-meter jump for more experienced athletes. Coleraine and Chicago have the only 70-meter plastic facilities in the Midwest. Ski jumping is a blast! If your child is interested in joining us, give us a call! COME OUT AND JOIN US!
