Chugiak Eagle River Nordic Ski Club


We are a 100% volunteer organization, and we rely heavily on our parent volunteers to make the program successful.  We expect most parents to spend some time on skis with our program; however, there are some non-skiing volunteer options available.  Here is were you can help:

Head Coach:  Head Coaches for beginner groups do not need to know how to ski.  We will provide free training to beginner coaches.   Head Coaches for the older groups must have some skiing ability simply to keep up with the kids.  A Head Coach is responsible for planning the activities for each session, ensuring the skiers are safe, and communicating with the Site Coordinator for skier accountability.   We regularly pair high school skiers with Head Coaches to provide additional technical training and support. 

Head Coaches receive a $60 discount for volunteering and should request the discount code prior to registering their kids.

Assistant Coach:  Assistant Coaches work with the head coaches, relying on the head coach to develop a plan for the evening.  An Assistant Coach will usually take a part of the group that may be skiing faster or slower to provide a smaller group experience.  Assistant Coaches will fill-in and run the session in the event the Head Coach is unavailable.

Parent Helper:  Parent Helpers ski with the group as sweepers to make sure everyone is safe.  Often the coach will ask the Parent Helper to be responsible for head counts, or to help out with games and activities.  In our 4-5 year old Polar Cubs group EVERY parent is a parent helper. 

Site Coordinator:  A non-skiing position for those who can attend Junior Nordic sessions, the Site Coordinator is our safety net and traffic regulator.  They ensure that all the coaches are ready to take their groups, that each group has a radio, and they staff the chalet to be available for emergencies.
