U.S. Cross Country Women’s Coaching Fellowship

Male cross country ski coaches outnumber female coaches by a 2:1 ratio in the United States. When observing head coach and other leadership positions, this ratio becomes even more exaggerated. To help address this disparity, the U.S. Cross Country Team is creating a fellowship to provide female coaches an opportunity to share experiences alongside U.S. Ski Team coaches and athletes.

Who: Four female cross country coaches, accepted through the below application process.

What: A one-week coaching fellowship to take place at the October U.S. Cross Country Team training camp. Accepted applicants will work alongside U.S. Ski Team coaches to assist and learn from athletes in a camp setting. All expenses will be covered thanks to the generosity of the HerRay! Foundation.

Where: The October U.S. Cross Country camp will be split into two locations, Lake Placid, NY and Park City, UT. Two fellowship applicants will be selected to attend the Lake Placid camp and two fellowship applicants will be selected to attend the Park City camp.

When: October 7-13, 2019 (for both locations)

How: Please submit:
1. Your résumé
2. One area you believe U.S. Cross Country Skiing could improve, and how that issue should be addressed (1 page maximum).

Applications from female coaches of all experience levels will be considered. Please submit the listed materials to by 7/31/2019.
