Coaching Certification

COACHING CERTIFICATION

Our Bunnies, Jackrabbits, Track Attack & Masters programs need coaches, and we’ll train you for free!

All coaches are required to have National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Certification. It is important to have trained coaches within these programs to ensure our skiers – young and old – are being taught how to ski properly and to maximize their potential and enjoyment of the sport. By volunteering as a coach, you will not only improve your own skiing abilities but you will also be rewarded by seeing progression of skiers as they improve their skills.

 Other incentives for WCCFC Volunteer Coaches include:

  • FREE National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Training ($225 value).
  • FREE trail passes on the days you coach.
  • Two FREE private ski lessons ($70 value).
  • FREE ski rentals.


WCCFC is offering two National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) workshops for the 2017-2018 season. Attend both workshops over the course of the weekend and get both done at once! This is recommended to maximize your time spent.
