Seasons Pass or Day Pass

All coaches, including volunteer coaches, must register for a seasons pass or day pass as this is required for anyone who uses the trails.

Coach License

All coaches coaching for more than 7 hours/year must sign up for the Nordiq Canada Coaching License before starting to coach from July 1st to June 30th in order to continue benefiting from NC liability insurance coverage and other benefits.

The NC coaching license is mandatory for 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.

The Nordiq Canada license is renewable annually and is valid from July 1 to June 30 at no charge. Registration opens on June 15 each year. You must already be a club member to sign up for a Coaching License.  Please do this at the start of each season.  Click on 'Nordiq Canada Coaching License' above for the quick and easy way to sign up for free.   

Criminal Record Check
