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 WCC Volunteer Coaches include:

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


After completing two Introduction to Community Coaching online modules on your own time, this in-class and on-snow workshop will teach community coaches how to lead a skill development program at the club level to children in the FUNdamentals stage of development. (Jackrabbits age 6-10) Coaches will learn how to teach basic cross-country skiing skills (both classic and skate), and how to introduce children to competition in a positive way.


Dec. 10th & 11th : 6pm – 8:30pm Online. One on snow day at WCC will be arranged in the New Year.
