NWT Snowboard is proud to offer a limited number of places on Level 1 and Park instructor courses in Yellowknife in January 2018.

Snowboard instructors play a vital role in helping new snowboarders to learn the sport, try out the basics, and become confident on the slopes.

Level 1 courses are for people new to instructing. Park courses are for Level 1 instructors who want to move to the next level, and focus on instructing people in a terrain park setting. Both courses are run by experienced CASI instructors.

For a limited time, we are offering these courses FOR FREE – a saving of $379! We can also arrange travel and accommodation for out-of-town participants who need financial assistance getting to Yellowknife from another NWT community.

Course dates

Level 1 – Friday, January 5 to Sunday, January 7, 2018

Park – Monday, January 8 to Tuesday, January 9, 2018

To register

Email ollie@movethenorth.ca to express an interest in registering. Email before Monday, December 11 to be sure of taking advantage of our free offer. (Applications after that date may still be eligible for full financial support, subject to availability. Email us to find out!) You can also email Ollie if you require more information about the courses and how they work.

What happens after I’m trained?

After you become an instructor, we would love to work with you to find ways you can get out on the slopes and introduce people to snowboarding! Our clubs will be in touch with you and there are also opportunities to travel to other NWT communities, all expenses paid, to spend time working with youth who want to learn the sport.

We will also check in with you to help you plan your next course, if you would like to continue progressing. It’s up to you!
