[ARCHIVED] Youth Snowmobile Training - Registration NOW OPEN

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is once again offering free snowmobile field training on December 8th and 9th for kids ages 11 to 15 at the Regional Training Facility in Jordan.  State law requires anyone born after Dec. 31, 1976, to be certified before riding on public land.  The half-day classes fulfill the second part of the state requirements for snowmobile certification.


The field training is taught by the Sheriff’s Office’s Recreational Safety Deputy and includes learning about snowmobiles, the machine’s different controls, riding at night and speed limits.


“We all want everyone to be able to get out and enjoy our Minnesota winters, especially our young people,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “That’s why it is so important that they be adequately trained on how to safely operate snowmobiles – just like with driver’s education to operate a vehicle.   Safety should always be our first priority.”


Prior to signing up for the class, participants must complete the DNR’s online course. That course, which costs $29.95, takes a couple hours and provides an introduction to the laws and safety practices that will be discussed at field training.


Participants can register online at Sheriff’s Office’s website for the field training.  They are asked to not bring their own snowmobiles, but are required to bring a helmet and winter apparel.  Space is limited to 25 kids per class and a parent or guardian will need to sign a consent form or present a DNR liability waiver.


Please visit the Sheriff’s Office’s website for more information or contact Recreational Safety Deputy Autenrieth at sautenrieth@co.scott.mn.us or (952) 496-8865 with any questions.
