Mentorship Program

Enhancing the coaching experience

Cross Country Ski Ontario is continuing its Coach Mentorship Program for the 2024-25 season.

The aim of this program is to facilitate partnerships, knowledge transfer and support coaches in reaching their potential.
 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:
develop their own learning objectives
– share experiences
– exchange ideas
– refine their understanding of coaching principles and strategies
– participate in coaching immersion activities with Team Ontario through a Provincial Coaching Experience (PCE)
Cross Country Ski Ontario believes in a professional approach to coaching and that coaching is a fundamental propeller of human development. An integral part of becoming a better coach is through a mentorship relationship.  The very best coaches are themselves coached by someone else.
Applications will be accepted on a continuous basis until all positions are filled.  Up to 5 coaches will be selected into the Mentorship Program. The program will be administered by:
  • Katja Mathys, XCSO Coaching Development Co-ordinator and
  • Alex Roger, Excellence Program Manager, XCSO.
