OK for beginner 10-year old to join?

Hello Club Members! We would love to get our 10-year old daughter involved in the club. She has experience downhill skiing (skis Intermediate) and a few days out last year trying classic and skate skiing. So she has she has athletic ability and snow awareness, but is still a beginner in XC skiing. In your respective experiences, where do you imagine her being placed in the club levels? And are there other cases of kids who are 10 starting out and being OK in the program? We hope we didn’t miss the boat / start too late. Thanks so much for any thoughts and experience you have to share!
