Cross Country NWT invites you to expand your coaching knowledge!

In partnership with the YK Ski Club, Cross Country NWT is hosting a Community Coach Workshop on November 17-18. If you are new to coaching or are looking to get trained/certified as a coach, this workshop is for you.

The Community Coach training is broken down into two steps:

Introduction to Community Coaching: This first step is all delivered online. Coaches must first take the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) multisport training “Coach Initiation in Sport”, which is a mandatory requirement before coaches can do CCC’s Introduction to Community Coaching module. These two online modules will teach parents and entry-level coaches how to deliver a series of age-appropriate skill development sessions in a safe environment to children in the Active Start stage of development (Bunnyrabbits). Coaches will also learn about ethics in sport and their liability, how to set up an effective ski playground, how to utilize terrain to teach technique, and how to advise parents on the ski equipment and clothing needs of their children. Get more information on how to register for the ICC online course.

Community Coaching: After completing the Introduction to Community Coaching training, this in-class and on-snow workshop will teach community coaches how to lead a skill development program at the club level to children in the FUNdamentals stage of development (Jackrabbits). Coaches will also learn how to teach basic cross-country skiing skills (both classic and skate), design a seasonal plan and how to select equipment and prepare skis for participants of this age.
