ASD Middle School Racing
For more information on how to get your child involved in their school’s Nordic skiing program, please contact their school.
Parents, want to support your skier and have fun on race day? Come help out and help at the Middle School races! The volunteers work together to make the race a great experience for all racers (first to last), families, and coaches. We need help to set up the race course several hours before the start and more help during the race in the start/finish area and in the woods. We even have inside jobs on race day. No experience needed – we train!
How You Can Help:
- Course Set Up: This is the only job that takes place in advance of races—usually starting about 1 pm the morning of the race. Help mark the course and set up start and finish areas. Don’t need to ski.
- Timing Crew: Feel the excitement of the finish line!! Working in groups of three, you time and record results. We train; no experience needed.
- Course Marshals: Stationed on course with radios, these volunteers get to see the race unfold on the course, and report any problems should they occur. Skis help.
- Course sweeps: You get to ski behind the race, provide encouragement to the slowest, report problems and get to witness the best sportsmanship as the last are cheered home.
- Announcer: Announce race start times and countdown to races.
- Course Take Down: Host Team
Volunteer Coordinators: firstname.lastname@example.org We appreciate your help!
*Weather and/or snow conditions may dictate a change in location. Please double check race venue as late as morning of the race.
