Officials Program

The Canada Snowboard Officials’ Program (CSOP) is a three-level education program to ensure officials will have the best opportunity to have all necessary knowledge and experience to organize and officiate at snowboard competitions. 

The program is managed and delivered by an Officials Committee composed by a group of senior officials supported by minor officials and volunteers that knows the officials’ program in depth, that are close to the community of officials in Canada, and that will participate in establishing guidelines and goals that need to be achieved with regards to the development, the management, the retention, the recognition and the training of officials in Canada.

To better understand the CSOP we recommend anyone to consult the Officials Program Operations manual. The Operations manual is a complete guide that outlines the entire program. It includes many links to policies, processes and other important information.  You will find information about; Safe sport, membership, vaccination policy, Officials development pathway, education program, certification, Officials developer, certification standards and assignment process, program management, committee and working groups, communication, officials community, program monitoring, Events and Competitions guidelines, evaluation, calendars, rules.
