We may have 20 cm of snow on the ground, but to help cheer you up Sail Nova Scotia has some exciting news to share.
Lisa Ross, our former Provincial Team Coach began a new role with the Association as Technical Director earlier this week.
This new position will see Lisa working with our Learn to Sail Clubs, coaches and instructors throughout the year and especially in the summer months. This spring a big focus will be on helping clubs adopt the Coaching Association of Canada's Safe Sport movement which aims to make sport positive and rewarding experience for everyone. As well, she will be assisting clubs with concussion protocols, instructor professional development and launching a coach mentorship program.
While our provincial team athletes will receive coaching this season from their club coaches, Lisa will also oversee the High-Performance program.
Please join me in welcoming Lisa in her new role as Technical Director.
