Officials Course

Officials Courses are being offered this November 2013 by Nakkertok Nordic’s Level 4 certified instructor, Jim McCarthy.  He will be assisted by Richard McKenna.
The success of events such as the Easterns is due in part to parents who have obtained officials’ certification. These courses are not necessarily offered every year so don’t miss out!
There are no prerequisites to register.  You may choose to take the course over one of these weekends: November 2-3 OR Nov 9-10, 2013, from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM each day
Course location: Nakkertok South, Blue Room.
For those who are unfamiliar with the CCC series of officials’ courses, this two-day course covers Level 1 and Level 2 and will address the different race formats and techniques, key race functions, Cross Country Canada Rules and Regulations, and will teach you how to interpret the rules for a specific level of competition, organize and officiate an interval start, pursuit, mass start and relay competitions and make organizational decisions which take into account the athlete and risk management issues. In short, you’ll be ready to give more to–and get more from–races, in any number of key volunteer roles! This certification is also a requirement should you wish to perform major second-level duties (e.g Chief of Course, Race Secretary). 
Please note that the course is open to anyone age 14 years old and older. A CCC certification looks impressive on a student resume. Volunteering at events is a great opportunity to get high school volunteer hours.
