COACH REGISTRATION CATEGORIES FOR ALPINE CANADA
COACH IN TRAINING (CIT) LICENSING PROGRAM
The coach-in-training (CIT) licensing program has two streams based on the level of experience of the candidate and their on-snow role. This licensing program ensures that all individuals working with children on-snow have met the insurers minimum requirements. All coach/athletes, volunteer coaches and 1st time CSIA instructors must meet the minimum insurers requirements to better ensure the minimum safe in sport standards are being met. All CIT registered coaches must declare their club affiliation during their annual membership renewal per CSA, insurers, requirements.
CIT SUPPORTING THE COACHING STAFF LICENSE
The coach-in training licensing programs serves as an introduction to alpine ski coaching for athletes transitioning from competitive ski racing (15 years of age and older), volunteer coaches, and parents interested in assisting a certified coach with the management of a group of ski racers at the Gliding Start and Skier Essential stage of development. This program is meant to pair up a prospective coach with a mentor coach during the initial stages of learning how to be a coach while supporting young developing ski racers.
CIT EXISTING CSIA MEMBER LICENSE
If you are current CSIA Member and NOT a ACA-CSC Member and have been hired by a club to coach athletes under the age of 12 years, the CIT program enables you as a CSIA member to meet the insurers minimum requirements when you initially begin to coach. CSIA certified instructors are able to lead a group independently under direction of an ACA-CSC certified mentor coach once the entry level coach in training licensing requirements have been met. CSIA members who are 1st time hires in a ski club are required to complete the entry level course within 12 months of their initial hire date per the ACA policy for Accreditation from 2015.
