OFFICIALS

Getting close to the action and cheering on athletes at Cross Country races is lots of fun and you can get even more out of race day by volunteering to assist with the event. Roles can be as big or small as you want but they all make the event for the athletes a success, try your hand at marshalling, counting laps, collecting bibs at the finish line, shepherding skiers at the start line, plunging the timing equipment as each boot crosses the finish line, setting up the event fencing and signs, and handing out hot chocolate to racers… If you are new to volunteering and would like to better understand what you can do at an event Cross Country BC offers a Level 1 Officials workshop through local clubs. It’s just one day and it will help prepare you for, and inform you about, the volunteer roles at a Cross Country event – many club’s fund the workshop for club members who volunteer, talk with your local club to confirm the arrangement there. Once you’ve volunteered a few times there is a 2 day Level II workshop for volunteer roles with more responsibility and technical knowledge.
