Contracted Staff

While Spokane Nordic Ski Association is largely a volunteer organization, it does contract with several individuals to fulfill functions that are too specialized or intense to be met well by within the time constraints of an all-volunteer board or volunteer members.
George Bryant - Race Team
George coaches the Race Team and has led several team members to strong finishes at the Junior National Championships over the past ten years. Just as importantly, George instills his team members with a sense of confidence and camaraderie.  He was named the PNSA Coach of the Year in 2017.
Ted Haskell - Transition Team
Ted Haskell began coaching the Transition Team (T-Team) in December 2019. He brings many years of experience coaching youth sports including Nordic skiing, X-C running and soccer in Spokane, Seattle, Freeman WA, and Laramie WY.
