Mini GKHAT
 
If you have a skier in our U8 or Mini GKHAT program, please visit the Tailgunning Volunteer Sign Up. In an effort to maximize safety and efficiency of training days, we are asking the parents of our minis and first year U8's to do some volunteer tail gunning with their child's group. Thank you in advance for helping us make the most of your child's training day!
 
Sign up here.

Our mini skiers are also participating in our upcoming Cookie Cup on Sunday January 12. If your athlete skis in the Saturday or Sunday morning session, please arrive ready to ski for 9 am. If your mini skis in the Saturday or Sunday afternoon session, please arrive ready to ski for 12 noon.
Training Equipment Drop Volunteering

Our coaches need a little help moving equipment on Fri/Sat/Sun training days. We are looking for an extra set of hands to assist Bill in the set-up/tear down of our training courses on regular training days. Please visit the sign up to help deliver equipment/gates to our training environments at the start of the day and back to the yurt at the end of the day. (One run to start the day and one run to end the GKHAT day). If everyone can help for ONE training day this season it would be a great help to our coaches.
 
Sign up here. If you have questions, please email Ryan at headcoach@gkhat.ca.
Cookie Cup - GKHAT Race
We are looking forward to the upcoming Cookie Cup and have been busy planning this first club event of the year. We now need some information from all of you!

The Cookie Cup will take place for ALL ATHLETES (including mini) on Sunday January 12 and will consist of four team events: snow starts skills, a speed trap, a dual slalom and a mini ski cross (all running on Catamount starting near the top of Wolverine, under the chair). There will be more specifics & details about the events and race day groups in the week leading up to the 12th.

At this time, to finalize the organization of the day we need you to please visit this link and do the following by Monday January 6th:
(1) Indicate whether or not your athlete will be participating in the event.
You will enter athlete name(s) after hitting “submit”. You can enter multiple athlete names in the same blank.
(2) Indicate where you can volunteer and help us run a fabulous and fun event for our athletes.
 
Please use this link to register and volunteer.
If you have an athelete in Mini GKHAT, please sign up here for tail-gunning.

**Your child will not be placed on a team or with a coach unless you confirm their participation on this link.
 
Please remember that GKHAT is a race club and our club events run solely on the efforts of our families as volunteers. We cannot run any events for our athletes without the help of our parents. Thank you for doing your part to make this a great club experience for your child and all of our athletes.

PLEASE NOTE: Because this event has ALL of our athletes participating on the same day, race day groups will look different than regular training day groups. Please prepare your athlete for this change. Race day groups can be found here.
Officials Level 1 Course
 
On Saturday Dec 21st after skiing, GKHAT is hosting an officials level 1 course. This course is a 3 hour introduction to what goes into hosting a ski race, structure of a Race Committee, and the rules of ski racing.
If you are available, the more parents we have in the club with this knowledge the better so sign up and come on out! GKHAT is covering the cost of this course for all our participants. If you have any questions contact Ryan via email at headcoach@gkhat.ca.

Sign up via the GKHAT event calendar by clicking on the event in the calendar.
