Youth Leadership Program

Check out our Youth Leadership Program poster to whet your appetite to be involved in this creative program.

There are current leadership opportunities in our Jackrabbit, Try-It XC Ski, Kids Running Wild and Adaptive Programs on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings and afternoons. Additional opportunities are available in our Spring and Fall Kids Running Wild Program.

Just send Coach Kevin an email to find out more or sign up.

Job Posting - Youth Coach/Leader Apprentice Program: 

As an innovative component of the NEW Lappe Nordic Youth Leaders program (see poster here) the Coach/Leader Apprentice Program will be for people who have completed a year of volunteer work with the ski club or have other relevant volunteer experience with a community group. The apprentice coach will need to identify an area of coaching or leadership within the club, make a clear commitment and complete any required training. We are currently accepting applications for this program and are hoping to have 3 or 4 apprentices for this winter. The application deadline is Friday, December 1, 2017. 

2017-2018 Program Registration

Lappe's Club and Program Registration for 2017- 2018 is now available at www.zone4.ca. Past online registrations required Zone4 fees and vendor credit card fees to be added on at the end of the registration transactions. In the interest of simplicity and transparency, Lappe has adjusted its club and program fees so the Zone4 and credit card fees are included in the advertised club and program fees. HST on program fees (club membership fees are exempt) are still added on at the end of each registration transaction.

For Program Descriptions, visit the Program section of the website. For Trail pass information visit the Trail Pass Fees section of the website.

Register online at www.zone4.ca. Once at the Zone4 website, type LAPPE Nordic Ski Club in the search box at the top to see all of Lappe's current registrations. (you will have to scroll down a bit since the registration page has been open since May).

VOLUNTEER ENGAGEMENT

Lappe Nordic Ski Club is a "club", not a business, that operates primarily through the efforts of its members who volunteer time and effort.  This allows the club to operate its many excellent programs with very low fees for its member participants.  To ensure this continues, the Lappe Board has introduced a formal Volunteer Engagement plan.  This plan details volunteer opportunities as well as exemptions for new members and members in the younger Jackrabbit programs.

Volunteer Opportunities

Are you ready to join a dynamic group of volunteers? Read on....

The operation of the Lappe Nordic Ski Club and the programs and services we provide depend upon the volunteer efforts of our members. With the exception of one paid coach, the ski club is run entirely by the efforts of tireless volunteers. Volunteering for our club is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and have fun!

You can help by volunteering in different ways:

Here are a list of the key positions that need to be filled, in addition to those mentioned above.
