The “ICC” Workshop is designed to teach parents and other beginning coaches with basic information and a feeling of confidence as they begin their role as a coach. It teaches coaches how to deliver a series of age-appropriate skill development sessions under the guidance/supervision of more experienced coaches. The orientation is to skiers of all age groups with an emphasis on working with children under six years of age (the “Active Start” stage of athlete development). Coaches are taught basic coaching skills, how to teach the fundamentals of technique, growth and development considerations, how to create a motivating learning environment and how to set up a ski playground. There are no prerequisites except enthusiasm and the minimum age requirement of 14 years.

Workshop Fee: The fee is $80.00 per person for CCBC members and $160.00 per person for non-members. The club must therefore guarantee a minimum payment of $640.00 for the workshop. If less than 8 participants show up, the cost of holding the workshop is still $640.00. If you have 6 or less participants registered the workshop will be rescheduled or cancelled.
The workshop will be in Kaslo on the 17th and 18th… exact location and times are still being worked out. I will be the POC, the best way to reach me is at firstname.lastname@example.org, I could also receive phone messages at 250-353-2251.
