Coaches introduce our young skiers to the sport at the earliest levels and provide skills training and leadership to all ages of athletes.
One of Cross Country Ski Ontario’s major roles on behalf of all clubs is to manage coach development and build the organization.
Coach development is closely coordinated with Nordiq Canada (formerly Cross Country Ski de Fond Canada) and is currently being updated in consultation with the Coaching Association of Canada.
Coaching development is overseen by our Director of Coaching Development, Katja Mathys, at [email protected]
