USST Seeking Coaches for World Junior/U-23 Championships

FasterSkierOctober 11, 2010

The U.S. Ski Team is offering four coaching positions for the 2011 World Junior and U23 World Championships. All four positions are fully funded by NCCSEF. Coaches looking to apply for these positions should have experience working with athletes aged 16-22, a strong background in waxing and testing skis, and be willing to work hard for two weeks and seven races. That said, we are looking to develop coaches and welcome all applications from coaches wishing to gain new experience and willing to share their own.

Please send a resume and brief cover letter to by October 25th. The
staff will be selected by November 1st.

Selection criteria for athletes are posted at – go to “Sports,” “Cross Country,”
and then “Advancement.”
