I want to volunteer!

COME SEE WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT; GET INVOLVED!

VOLUNTEERS… are the back-bone of the KA Ski Program and are one of the reasons it has

lasted for some 45 years. This year is no different. There are many tasks that we need help

with: supervision in the ski lodge, transportation of ski equipment and of course skiers of all

levels who will supervise and do a little teaching (technique and safety) just to name a few!

• Adult volunteer skiers who can take a group of students (maximum of 10) get a free lift

ticket for the full day. For the sake of management and consistency, priority will be given

to skiers who can commit to 5 Tuesdays, 5 Thursdays or both. Keep in mind that a ski

instructor will work with you and your group for 90 minutes a day!

• Volunteer skiers are strongly urged to take part in a two-part ski workshop;

1. The first part (indoor) will take place at Knowlton Academy on Wednesday January

21st, 2015 in the Home Ec. room from 18h30 to 20h30.

We will view a short video and discuss topics such as the objectives of the ski program, safety issues to cover and review with students, procedures on how to lead and organize a group of skiers on the mountain, teaching tips and techniques (all parents and Staff welcome).

2. The second part (outdoor) will be given on Friday January 23rd, 2015 at Mont Sutton. We will meet at the Snow School Desk at 12h30, next to the ticket counter*. We will be skiing until 15h30. We will put in action topics discussed in the “indoor session”. This will also be a chance for skiers to get to know the mountain and the facilities and also to cover some technical points on ski teaching and try some skills & exercises to use with students. Time providing, some ski improvement may also be included for participants.
