Telemark is currently recruiting new faces to our group of qualified race officials. These officials are required for both loppets and other high performance races, like BC Cups or potentially NorAms. Areas of specialty include stadium, course, competition secretary and timekeeping. Your first step will be to invest 1 day to become a NCCP (Cross Country Canada) Level 1 certified race official which qualifies you to work races anywhere in Canada. Level 2, a 2-day course, qualifies you to officiate / oversee races, even World Cup events or the Olympics.
Races don’t run by themselves and it is a great way to be part of the club, to give back and meet fantastic people. We are looking for 3 people to take the upcoming Level 1 and Level 2 workshops. Telemark will reimburse workshop registration fees. The only commitment we ask in return is that you make yourself available to assist with our BC Championships race Feb. 20-20.
If you are interesting please contact Jillian Stamp at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP and she will organize the enrollment.
