I’M AN OFFICIAL…OR I’D LIKE TO BE ONE

We invite everyone to join our race community and support our athletes, coaches, and all the great race events held in Ontario! Email Nathalene Hagar, Ontario Officials Chair, at officials@alpineontario.ca if you have any questions.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?
STEP 1: Register as an Official/Volunteer with AOA this season so you can assist at any race in Ontario.
You will then be covered by Commercial General Liability insurance as an AOA member.
You will also be entitled to any other AOA Membership Benefits, including the Sporting Life discount card.
STEP 2: Sign up for an Official Course by visiting the AOA Events Calendar, or sign up for an Annual Update if you are already an Official. Once you find a date and location that suits you, sign up! You will meet others who share a passion for ski racing and learn more about the sport.
