This winter the Junior World Championships will be combined into one event with the World Under-23 World Championships. The event will take place in Kranj, Slovenia from January 31 until February 5. The schedule is posted at www.fis-ski.com
The staff for this event consists of:
This staff was picked based on a combination of factors including waxing ability and experience, fitness and ability to test wax and skis for long hours, willingness to work very hard (there are races everyday), ability to take both leadership and worker roles, and experience working with athletes at the U23 and Junior level.
There were other great applicants and I encourage all coaches to continue to apply for Junior World and U23 coaching positions.
Selection of coaches will be similar in the future. Coaches who wish to attend must have in depth knowledge of waxing, be fit enough to test wax and skis, be very hard working, able to organize and manage, have experience with youth and young adult athletes and be able to maintain a very positive attitude and environment in the face of difficult circumstances.
