Youth coaches gain venue access

News item from the Alpine Officials Education Working Group Chair:

In today’s (10/12/2018) ASC conference an update was made regarding youth coaches (15-18). They will be allowed venue access as coaches.

  • Membership requirement is: Competitor or General Member
  • They must be under the supervision of a current member coach or official
  • Their venue access must be requested/signed for by the supervising current member coach or official
  • They may not serve as Jury member or Course Setter

U.S. Ski & Snowboard is working on the exact wording which will be included in the ACR Precisions, but we need to get the info out to Clinic Chairs.

Note: Instructors at IMD AO clinics, you need to be aware of this change. Prior to this, the requirement for coaches at events was 18 years old or older with a valid coaches license. As official training documents are updated they will be posted in the Alpine 101 Forums.

Here is a link to the protocol released 10/31/2018.
