This is probably one of the most important
components of the women’s program. The foundation of this resource will be the development of an instructor database. The database will be formatted by divisions with instructors added at the recommendations of the division leadership and division program supervisors.
This database will be comprised of instructors (both men and women) with experience in teaching women. These individuals will be able to provide a positive experience for the ladies and hopefully those participants themselves will gain an interest in becoming an instructor. With the ranks tipped more toward the men it isn’t unusual to see one lone female staff member out on the hill during a Toboggan Enhancement Seminar. Encouraging more women into the teaching rolls also empowers them to continue on into other leadership roles in the NSP.
The instructor database will also be a great resource for anyone with the desire to develop a women’s clinic and looking for instructors to help.
It will also be a valued resource for an established program supervisor to use when looking for someone with specific skill sets.
Maybe there is a need for a snowboard instructor or telemark instructor. Take a look in the instructor database and see who is out there. It will be very easy look at another division database and get some names…it’s a short trip across some of the division and region boundaries. Events are being planned across the United States.
