Don’t forget to apply: Para Mentorship Program 2024-25

 

The aim of this program is to facilitate connections, partnerships and knowledge transfer to build the capacity of Ontario coaches to offer quality training experiences for Para Nordic athletes and increase the number of coaches and clubs in the province who are “Para Ready”.
Through increased collaboration and knowledge sharing, XCSO aims to improve the coaching environment in the province while increasing connections with coaches. Through this program, coaches will:
– identify gaps and develop individualized learning objectives related supporting \Para athletes in the daily training environment
– share experiences
– exchange ideas
– increase and refine their understanding and comfort level with Para Nordic specific coaching principles and strategies
– participate in coaching immersion activities with athletes registered in the Ontario Para Nordic teams through targeted Provincial Coaching Experiences (PCE)
Cross Country Ski Ontario believes in cultivating a diverse and inclusive community of skiers and coaches that can work seamlessly with all athletes. An integral part of becoming a better coach is through a mentorship relationship.  The very best coaches are themselves coached by someone else.
This program is open to new and experienced coaches alike.
Applications will be accepted on a continuous basis until all positions are filled.
