Pre-reading will be shared with participants approximately a week before the course.

For the on-snow portion, you’ll need your skis and warm clothing – and you’ll be required to deliver a 10-15 min technique development session (more information about this will also follow closer to the course date).

In Competition Coaching Introduction (CCI-L2T) coaches develop skills to deliver a well-rounded program for athletes aged 9-12 years old. The emphasis is on skill development within a fun, team-oriented environment that develops a passion for the lifelong health and fitness benefits of cross-country skiing.

On snow workshop: This 16.5-hour in-person workshop is delivered by your Division. Topics include:

-team management
-supporting athletes at a competition
-equipment selection
-ski preparation
-how to effectively teach intermediate-level ski technique

CCI (L2T) dryland workshop is a prerequisite. There are twelve (12) spots available in this course.

If you are outside of Yellowknife and want to attend, please let me know and we’ll try to offer some support to help you attend.
The deadline to register is Friday, January 27, 2023.
