Coaches


The OISA coaches are awesome! Our coaches teach all kinds of riders from “newbies” to the skilled and we have a great time doing it! Would you like to join our ranks? If you have the passion and drive, then we would love to have you.

OISA coaches are responsible snowboarders, who understand what it means to be a coach and lead a team, while having fun.

Please note that coaches are hired by the individual teams. For more information and to submit a letter of interest please use the form on the Contact Us page. Resumes from coaches who have submitted them will be available to teams upon request from the OISA Board.
