The club, through the initiative of Ronice Goebel, has since 2011 invited an overseas coach for the winter season to assist with club (junior & adult) and school coaching. The club and the Victorian Junior XC Ski Team fund the coaches airfare to Australia who are billeted with local club families. This project has also provided a fantastic cultural exchange opportunity and the basis for many new international friendships.
