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
Interim Team Coach

After retiring in 2021, SNSA's long-time coach, George Bryant, has graciously agreed to step in as the interim coach for the rest of the 2022 season. More info coming soon!


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.

Paige Pucelik

Paige recently moved from Traverse City, Michigan where she graduated from Northern Michigan University with a bachelor's degree in Outdoor Recreation and Leadership Management. While in school she interned with the National Park service creating interpretive programs for youth in the community.
