EMBK is preparing for the 2018-2019 ski season and we hope to help your family get signed-up and geared-up for the winter. Here are some key areas of interest:
Registration — Opens September 26th
Registration will open on September 26th. Please register early if you’re able—early fall registration helps us to better plan for the season. Please watch our Google Group postings in late September (notification in your email) for the registration link. Special note for fall roller skiing: All skiers who plan to roller ski with EMBK must be registered before they will be allowed to roller ski.
We are an all-volunteer club. We rely on parents to volunteer each year to coach, organize specific activities and events, or help with club management and operations. Great opportunities exist this year to get involved with other skiing families. Currently we need help with:
- Coordinating club participation at the BKL Festival (helping organize the food table, and distribution of race bibs/packets) March 2-3, 2019
- Team/Country Parent liaison
Check out the volunteer page on the EMBK website (http://easternmassnordic.org/about-embk/volunteer/) and contact Cécile Tucker at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help!
Need New Coaches: We welcome and need new coaches. You don’t need to be an expert skier. We have a wide range of skier groups you can coach. Young skiers who have aged out of EMBK but not moved on to CSU are also encouraged to become assistant coaches with Team USA (7-8 year olds). We ask new coaches to attend the coaches’ clinic on Oct 27 (see schedule). Anyone thinking about coaching is encouraged to attend! If you haven’t coached with us in the past, but would like to, please contact Jim Stock at email@example.com.
