No officials, no races - get involved!
Trained race officials are essential for any sport competition! A sports official is in charge of making sure that standards of play are maintained, and they enforce the rules and policies that govern a particular sport, from grassroots competitions to World Cups.
Get involved in growing sport by helping us facilitate Nordic or sliding events at our venues! No experience is required for most officials positions. Each season, officials certification courses are held to help fill these essential roles.
