PARENT RESPONSIBILITIES FOR RACES

Mini GKHAT: Please note that any mini who is participating in the race needs to have a parent/guardian skiing with them; the mini’s need a one-to-one ratio. Thus, one parent will need to be with your child for the entire day. As a parent/guardian, you will to cycle with the athlete from the finish coral back up to the start coral after run #1, and then collect them after run #2 at the finish coral.

U8 Ski Groups: Each race group will require 2 volunteers (tail gunners). These volunteers will remain with the group for the entire day. All other parents may volunteer for other options for the entire day. Tail gunners will cycle the skiers from the finish coral back up to the start coral after run #1 and collect them at the finish coral after run #2.

U10 Race Day Groups: Each of these groups will require 1 volunteer tail gunner from that group to collect skiers at the finish line. All other parents can volunteer for other positions. Volunteers for this position will only be required while the U10 group is racing (afternoon) Thus, you can volunteer for the morning.

U12 Race Day Groups: These groups will not require any volunteers. Thus, you can volunteer with other positions throughout the day.

If your athlete is not attending, it is important to communicate this to us. Please use the race groups form. or email Ryan at headcoach@gkhat.ca

We still NEED the following positions filled to run a race this weekend.

SKI TUNING NIGHT IN THE YURT!

Our Nancy Greene race is fast approaching, so if you are looking to learn about ski tuning, improve your technique, learn how to use those fancy tools you got, and get some hands-on experience and guidance this is the night for you! Ryan will be in the yurt Friday Feb 24 after skiing (3:30pm) to teach and help you out. If you have some tools, bring them and your own skis. If you don’t have tools but want to try it out, the club has some tools you can use.

If you are interested email Ryan at headcoach@gkhat.ca to let him know you’ll be there.

Thank you,
The GKHAT Club
