Officials Courses



Jan 31 – Feb 4, 2018   Gatineau, Quebec

 Join fellow cross country ski officials from across Canada for this exciting opportunity to learn from a variety of our sport’s top officials, to share event management experiences and to network with other club, division and national officials.  Offered in conjunction with the 2018 Haywood NorAm Eastern Canadians hosted at the Nakkertok Nordic Centre it represents an ideal opportunity to review a number of interesting event formats including Para-Nordic under the direction of an experienced Organizing Committee. This facilitated course will combine a series of expert-led sessions with on-site event observation assignments and participant presentations on pre-course assigned topics. Pre and post course assignments complete the evaluation components of this course.

 The LEVEL 3 OFFICIALS COURSE is designed to prepare officials to:

1.     effectively structure, staff and manage a Competition Committee at Division through National level events,

2.     perform any “major official” role at the National Championship level,

3.     lead an event organizing committee for a major event,

4.     perform the role of a Divisional TD,

5.     be familiar with CCC technical packages, CCC/FIS rules and make appropriate rule interpretations as they apply to CCC Tier 1 and Tier 2 level competitions

  1. be able to provide a risk management assessment for a race site and develop an effective Risk Management plan.

7.     teach the Level 1 and 2 Officials clinics after having achieved Certification
