Coaches needed!!

If you would like to be a coach or to assist with coaching this year, or know anyone who would be interested please let Delores know asap.

There is a coaching course in Whistler on October 3 and 4th. Spud Valley Nordics covers the cost of this course for all those who volunteer to coach in our Jackrabbit program.

The children of Pemberton benefit in many ways from being in the Jackrabbit program. The number of children in the program is determined by the number of coaches.
