[ARCHIVED] Youth Snowmobile Training - Registration NOW OPEN

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is once again offering free Snowmobile Field Training on December 7th and December 8th, 2019 for kids ages 11 to 15 at the Regional Training Facility in Jordan.  This field training covers state laws, hand signals, outdoor survival, safe riding techniques, and more.

Minnesota state law requires anyone born after Dec. 31, 1976 to be certified before riding on public land.  This half-day class fulfills the second part of the state’s requirements for snowmobile certification.

“We all want everyone to be able to get out and enjoy our Minnesota winters, especially our young people,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “Safety should always be our first priority and that’s why it is so important that they learn the laws and regulations, and how to safely operate these powerful machines.”

Space is limited to 25 students per session – so sign up early. Snowmobiles will be provided and we ask that attendees do not bring their own snowmobiles.  Children will be responsible for bringing the appropriate clothing depending on weather, including a snowmobile helmet.

Prior to attending this class, students MUST complete the ‘classroom’ portion of the Minnesota DNR’s Youth Snowmobile Safety Course - either via a traditional course offered by select agencies/organizations or the online course.  More information about these two options can be found on the MN DNR’s website:

For more information and to register for the Scott County Sheriff's Office Youth Snowmobile Field Day/Riding Performance Course, please complete the online registration:  

Please contact Recreational Safety Deputy Autenrieth at or (952) 496-8865 with any questions.
