Attention Ottawa and area XC Skiers,

Ski and Snowshoe Fast (SXCF, or “Ski Fast”) is looking ahead to the 2016-2017 season with much anticipation!  Last season, despite the unpredictable winter conditions, Ski Fast ran a record number of program sessions and taught a larger number of students than ever before!

The SXCF Board is seeking Instructors to fill vacant positions. Are you interested in becoming a SXCF ski and snowshoe Instructor?  To qualify for the position, you should be a patient and enthusiastic individual, who is reliable and responsible.  You should have experience with teaching or in a leadership role and be comfortable leading youth and adults alike.  Strong cross-country ski ability is a must, with an intermediate-to-advanced level of technical ability. Bilingualism (English and French) is a huge asset!

The duties of a SXCF Instructor include, but are not limited to:

  • Teaching (or co-teaching) basic ski and/or snowshoe technique to groups of kids or adults at SXCF sessions.

  • Maintaining a fun and positive attitude with participants and teachers. Showing enthusiasm for our sport.

  • Assisting with the setup and disassembly of ski and other equipment at each session.

  • Participating in pre and post-season meetings with the SXCF Board to discuss curriculum and to review.

This position requires a Police Record’s Check.

This is a paid position.  Remuneration is based on the rate of $25 per hour.
