2019 Team Alaska Coaches Needed

Cross Country Alaska (CCAK) is looking for qualified individuals to fill positions on the coaching staffs for:

  • 2019 Junior National Championships, March 9-16, 2019 in Anchorage, Alaska

2018-19 Coaching Application

CCAK will first fill the positions of Arctic Winter Games Head Coach. CCAK will then review the applications for the Junior Nationals Team Trip Leader, Junior National Team Head Coach.

Applications for the positions of Trip Leader and Head Coach for the Junior Nationals Team will be accepted via email only through midnight October 15. These positions will be nominated by the Coach Selection Subcommittee for approval by the Cross Country Competition Committee and will be announced by October 30.

Applications for the coaching staff positions for Junior Nationals will be accepted via email only through midnight November 1. The coaching staff positions will be nominated by the Coach Selection Subcommittee for approval by the Cross Country Competition Committee and will be announced by November 30.

Applications must be submitted on the CCAK coach application form, and should include a brief cover letter (e-mail cover letter is sufficient) indicating the individual’s interest in coaching Team Alaska.

New this year is the requirement that all applicants have a current US Ski & Snowboard license and complete SafeSport training. As of March 13, 2017, U.S. Ski & Snowboard adopted the Safe Sport Code; and all US Ski & Snowboard coaches, officials and volunteers are required to complete background checks. Applicants for US Ski & Snowboard licenses will be automatically directed to the SafeSport training program and the National Center for Safety Initiatives Website for the background check. In the past CCAK hasn’t required the US Ski & Snowboard license to be presented until the championships. Beginning this year all registrations must be completed prior to applying to be a Team Alaska coach. Background screening may take several weeks to be completed, so please do not delay the US Ski & Snowboard coaching application process.

Deadlines:

  • October 15 – to be a Team Alaska head coach/team leader
  • November 1 – to be a member of Team Alaska coaching staff

Applications should be submitted electronically, in either PDF or *.doc format. Submissions should be e-mailed to info@crosscountryalaska.org. Candidates will be evaluated by the Coach Selection Subcommittee based upon their experience, knowledge, skill, and ability to work as a part of a team.
