We are seeking eligible drivers who are able, or willing to become, designated Team Telemark Van Drivers this season! We are fortunate to have a dedicated van for our race team, and are hoping to utilize it more frequently this winter. With the current cost of fuel, we are keen on having more team transportation!
Although our coaches (Adam & Chris) are registered to drive the van, it isn’t always possible to use the van at competitions as race support coaching duties do not permit transporting athletes to and from the competition venues. Coaches can transport athletes to the competition city (i.e.: Kelowna-Whistler), but race-day shuttling (i.e.: Whistler accommodations to Whistler Olympic Park) is not possible as the coaches are required to be on site much earlier, remain on site much later than the athletes and are unable to depart mid-day to shuttle athletes.
We would like to recruit more drivers (from biathlon and cross country programs) who can assist with driving so we can use the van to transport athletes to race cities and shuttle to the race venue while the coaches remain on site.
The Team Telemark Van Policy requires that :”All operators of the Team Van must have a valid British Columbia Driver’s License with a Class 4 unrestricted designation. This license allows for the operation of commercial vehicles carrying up to 24 passengers.”
