The Teton County Parks and Recreation Department is looking for intermediate and above cross-country skiers who want to spend a few hours working with kids each week in January and February.

Learn about ‘The Winning Athlete’

Are your kids ready to take their sport to the next level?

The Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club is hosting a seminar from 6 to 7:30 tonight at the Snow King Sports and Event Center called the “The Winning Athlete.” Hosted by Francine Bartlett and Jenny Collins from Medicine Wheel Wellness, the workshop will focus on keeping athletes healthy throughout the season.

The workshop is part of the Ski Club’s Parent-Athlete Education Series, which is open to all community members. It continues with “Supporting Balance: Athletics and Academics” on Dec. 4 and “College and Career Pathways” on Dec. 9. See JHSkiClub.org for information.

Parks and Rec seeks cross-country skiers

Parks and Rec wants to give anyone looking to earn a couple extra bucks this winter the chance to be a cross-country ski coach. Its after-school cross-country ski club will work with about 25 third through fifth graders in January and February.

The kids will cross-country ski around the Jackson Elementary School fields, and instructors would be required to put in about six hours each week (3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday) for the two months. Intermediate cross-county skiing skills are necessary, and pay depends on experience.

People who are interested in being a coach can reach Outdoor Programmer Cory Connett at 732-5762 or via cconnett@tetoncountywy.gov.
