Cross Country Ski Ontario is introducing an Officials Mentorship Program. The aim of this program is to facilitate growing the pool of officials at the club as well as at the provincial level to support race organizations. Through increased collaboration and knowledge sharing, XCSO aims to improve the officials environment in the province while increasing
connections with other officials. Through this program, officials can share experiences, learn in different environments through exposure at races, apply knowledge in different roles at races in Ontario and become acquainted with various clubs and their venue.
Up to 10 officials will be selected for this program. The program will be administered by Katja Mathys, XCSO Coaching Development Co-ordinator. The mentors will be Alan White (XCSO’s official’s chair), race directors, TD’s, Chief of competitions, etc., depending on the assignments.
