By:  Paul Graner   (2006/02/22)


Dear Cross Country Ski Coaches, Instructors, Administrators and Volunteers,

Due to popular demand CANSI Eastern Ontario Region is hosting a second level I instructor course this ski season on March 4-5 in the National Capital region. This is an Introduction to ski instruction course, certified to teach novice skiers. The course is packed full of great cross country ski technique information and drills to help you teach cross country skiing.

The Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI) is a non-profit organization designed to promote the sport of cross country skiing in Canada through the provision of high quality instruction. CANSI strives to promote a positive and proactive approach to the teaching of cross country skiing skills through lesson planning and instruction.

CANSI offers four levels of certification in Cross Country techniques and three in Telemark. Advancement through the levels in both areas marks a progression in an individual's ability to teach more advanced or expert skiers. Although CANSI's primary focus is certifying instructors to teach the general public, services beyond instructor certification are also available. If there is something you feel we can offer you a service please let us know.

CANSI is the body through which new technical advances in the sport are directed to the learning skier.

Please register, at www.cansi.ca under the Ontario schedule with events on line, you are registering for the following course:

XC level I (on request) Eastern Area $250.00

Once you are registered you will shortly receive the course agenda and additional information including how to access the CANSI manual.
