Volunteer Positions

The Strathcona Nordic Ski Club is a non-for profit organization dedicated to providing programs for all ages and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. The success of the club is dependent on our excellent volunteers who share their time and varied talents. There are many ways to get involved with the club from joining the Executive to coaching or helping with special events and races. Every little bit helps!


The executive is made up of 12 or more volunteers who oversee the programing and running of the club. The board meets for 2-3 hours once a month. For more information or to get involved contact Berend Henckel.

Skill Development Program

Our Bunnyrabbit and Jackrabbit programs are the core of our club. These fun programs introduce and foster a love of skiing in our children. They could not run without our energetic volunteer coaches and support crew. Contact our “Head Hare” Jennifer Winter for details on how to get involved.


Coaching is a great way to get involved and improve your own skiing skills. Our coaches are NCCP certified and the club provides coach training to interested members. Coaches are always needed for Jackrabbits, Learn To Ski, School Programs and Masters Recreation. Contact coaching coordinator Marilyn Atkinson.
