Coaches needed for 16/17 season

Summer is officially over and we start thinking about xc ski season!

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

There is a coaching course (Level 1) in Whistler in November. 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. We look forward hearing from YOU!
