Welcome to the 2018-19 winter season. Your little Jackrabbit will love to ski with friends under the supervision of our professionally trained volunteer coaches and coaching assistants.
Bunnyrabbit, Jackrabbit and Adventurers ski lessons start on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 10:30 AM, snow conditions permitting. Meet your group in the stadium, in front of the lodge. If you have registered for rental equipment for the lessons go straight to the lower chalet to pick up the rental equipment.
The ski league program relies on parent coaches like you to grow our programs. Contact Deren Sentesy for more information.
REGISTER on ZONE4.CA
We want you and your jackrabbit to learn to “ski for life.” We focus on having fun, while teaching skills and techniques like balance, coordination, cooperation, timing, and fun on snow.
Volunteer Coaching Staff
Our Volunteer Parent Coaches have attended one or more of Cross Country Canada’s amazing coaching programs, provided free to all Telemark Coaches. These coaches get free instruction (how to ski better) from Head Coach Adam Elliot.
Telemark Nordic relies on volunteers to run. Parents are expected to volunteer throughout the season. Opportunities include: volunteer coach, coach assistant, group assistant, hot chocolate attendant, or special event helper.
Contact Telemarkskileague@gmail.com to find out more. Volunteers are also invited to special skills development sessions and other coaching team events.
