Assessment tools

Assessment information is used to determine stickers, report card content, and progression. Please ensure that you do the following for each athlete on your team:

  • Take notes on areas of improvement and strengths
  • Make note of what techniques have been attained for the level
  • Have a 50m or 100m timed sprint result (Jackrabbits only, for the Becky Scott awards)
  • Ask your athletes to learn about their poster and what awards they can earn
Report cards should be given to skiers before the last day of skiing.  Awards can be given out throughout the season if that is easier for you.
