Over the past couple of months, Foothills has hosted or sent coaches to NCCP training courses for both cross-country and biathlon.
Tyson Smith ran a Community Coach Silver and Gold course for over 20 biathletes who will be coaching Biathlon Bears or Racing Bears.
On the cross-country side, facilitators Michelle Deacon and Kevin Baggott ran Introduction to Community Coach (part 1) and Community Coach (part 2) courses for another 24 Foothills coaches. In addition, three Foothills coaches attended the first Competition Introduction L2T dryland course in Bragg Creek.
