The Summit Nordic Ski Club (SNSC) is one of Colorado’s fastest growing youth ski programs and serves Summit County, Colorado (Breckenridge, Frisco, Silverthorne, Keystone and Dillon). SNSC has a top-notch coaching staff and is looking to recruit one more. We have five winter programs and are looking for an assistant coach to primarily help with our Devo Program (ages 11-13). Olof Hedberg is the Head Coach for SNSC and is responsible for training plan design and overseeing the entire program and coaching staff. This position would report directly to the Head Coach. Assistant coaches are on the front line working with athletes to help them achieve their individual goals from Olympic hopefuls to kids who enjoy being outside and want to improve their Nordic technique.
SNSC is a relatively small organization which makes it feel more like a family. Our athletes and families are a fantastic group of people. We hope to find an excellent coach to join our community and help our club continue to grow.
The Assistant Coach position is currently seasonal (October – March) and part time, but has the potential for full time work over the winter. There is also potential to extend the job into our summer programs. Our Devo program meets 4 days per week and has four main race weekends (travel Thursday/Friday and return Sunday) over the winter.
Our ideal candidate will have a love for Nordic skiing, experience working with kids and a generally positive and energetic attitude. Strong knowledge of Nordic technique and training principles are also important.
In addition we would like someone who:
● Has a background in high-level Nordic racing
● USSA Level 100 Coach
● Is a proficient roller skier (able to ski with athletes over varied terrain and long distances)
● Has waxing experience
● Ability to safely drive a 15 passenger van in snowy conditions
