AOA will be hosting several coach development opportunities for the 2019-20 season whereby coaches can work with high-performance athletes and teams. These opportunities require coaches to complete an application (see link below) whereby selected coaches will work inside a high-performance team, discuss technique and tactics with lead coaches and participate in all aspects of the camp(s). The selected coaches will help and support the lead coaches in running all aspects of the camp. AOA/SOD will cover the camp expenses and the home ski clubs will cover travel and pay the salary for the successful selected interface coaches.
