GVNSC Coaches

We are fortunate to have a highly experienced and enthusiastic group of volunteer coaches. Our lead coaches have numerous years of Nordic skiing experience. Many of them have raced at the collegiate level and have coaching and instructing certifications through the United States Ski and Snowboard Team (US Ski Team) and the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA). 


All of our coaches are trained in first aid and CPR, have background checks, and are Safe Sport trained and certified.
