Trained officials are necessary to provide fair, safe, and properly structured competitive cross-country skiing events. Cross Country Nova Scotia oversees the development of officials in the province.
All Ages Encouraged
Skiers from ages 16 years through-grand-master are encouraged to register and train to become an official. Young people will gain transferable life skills by interacting with all age groups in leadership roles, outside of a classroom setting. Our province’s grand-masters bring a lifetime of experiences to the role and are encouraged to pursue certification.
