All coaches coaching for more than 7 hours/year must sign up for the 2021-2022 Nordiq Canada Coaching License before starting to coach from July 1st 2021 to June 30th 2022 in order to continue benefiting from Nordiq Canada liability insurance coverage and other benefits.
The Nordiq Canada coaching license is mandatory for all active cross country ski coaches in Canada who are coaching at least 7 hours per year with a registered cross country ski club (with their division).
An “active” coach is anyone who performs typical coaching tasks with a registered club, including delivering practices or assisting with delivery of practices, with any age group, for at least 7 hours per year.
Personal information collected is kept private and may only be used for risk management, planning and communication purposes between Nordiq Canada, the coach’s club and division.
The license is renewable on a yearly basis, starting June 15th and effective July 1st of each year.
Go to the Nordiq Canada Coaching License page for more details and registration.
The annual cross country ski Swap Shop has been held in mid November for over 30 years, but again this year, CCSAM has decided to cancel it. Public health restrictions are a factor, but the global supply shortage of cross country ski equipment is the show-stopper. In recent years, the vast majority of equipment for sale at our swap shop has come from local ski shops who are clearing out previous years’ stock. There isn’t any this year, so a swap shop would have a huge shortage of items for purchase.
There are a number of online buy & sell platforms that individuals can use to buy or sell cross country ski items — Facebook Marketplace and Kijiji are the two most obvious. In particular, there is a Manitoba Cross Country ski gear Buy, Sell and trade Facebook group that has 1700 members.
Hopefully you’ll find what you need.
