Divisions Update

Weekly Division Update: March 19 – 25

March 30, 2021

To all events officials

Nordiq Canada is in the process of working to transfer all officials training information into a new management system. We will be using the Coaching Association of Canada’s coaches Locker tool for managing and recording officials development and certification beginning September 2021. This is a secure platform ensuring confidentiality of information and accessible only to vetted coordinators and sport managers.

We ask that all officials visit their account by April 18th, 2021 at the latest, to ensure that information is up to date.

As we will be transferring personal information, please inform Nordiq Canada if you do not wish to be included in the database (note however that this will effectively remove your candidacy from future officiating until such a time that your information is either transferred or that candidates retrain/recertify.)


That’s a Wrap!

The Annual Club Fundraiser sinishes with flurry of activity in the last week bringing in an additional $75,000!

Congratulations to all participating clubs!  You should be very proud of what you have accomplished for your communities.
