Well, it is time to start thinking of the ‘white stuff’ and the wonderful venue we have up at Sovereign Lake!
With ambitions of hosting more events like Masters Championships and National Championships, which bring money back to our club, we need to strengthen and develop our Officials capabilities. Please see below as to how to go about doing so.
Let me know if you are interested in this course (or the level 2 course) and I will get back to you with more information.
A LEVEL 1 OFFICIAL’S COURSE IS BEING ORGANIZED HERE IN VERNON OCTOBER 28.
WE NEED MEMBERS AND PARENTS TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP AND LEARN ABOUT WHAT IT TAKES TO HOST A RACE.
THIS IS AN INFORMATIVE ONE-DAY COURSE THAT BRIEFLY COVERS THE DIFFERENT TASKS AND POSITIONS NEEDED TO HOST A RACE.
SLNC WILL COVER THE REGISTRATION COST FOR ANY SOVEREIGN LAKE MEMBER WHO VOLUNTEERS AT RACES.
CCC OFFICIALS CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
An eight hour course that provides an overview of what a cross country ski competition is all about. The focus is on the duties of minor officials for both ‘Olympic’ style (interval start, mass start, pursuit start, individual sprint, team sprint and relay) and ‘Loppet’ style (mass participation) competitions.
8 hrs / course. The course fee is $80.00 for CCBC members, $160 for non-members. (If you are a member of a Club, they will usually pay your fee if you volunteer at races.)
A level 2 course is being held in Whistler the weekend of November 18-19. In addition to the registration fee, SLNC will help defray costs to go there. Please let me know if you are interested…
PLEASE CONSIDER TAKING THE NEXT STEP AND REGISTER WITH RAE JENSEN AT: [email protected]
I hope to hear from you soon.
