    For who?

    The NC coaching license is aimed at 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.

    The NC Coaching License is mandatory for all coaches coaching for more than 7 hours/year starting July 1st of each year. Only those coaches with a valid NC coaching license will benefit from NC’s liability insurance while performing in a coaching role with a registered cross country ski club.
