Nordic Ski Team Needs Marketing Manager


After reading this morning's Duluth News Tribune it has come to the attention of the Duluth East Nordic Ski Team coaches that we are in desperate need of a full time marketing manager. 


Published in the sports section of the Duluth News Tribune were the top ten sports stories of 2011.  Listed number 3 was the Duluth East and Hermantown hockey teams loosing at the State Meet.  There was no mention of the East Nordic Boys and Girls Ski Teams wining the State Meet.  This omission is significant for two reasons; 1) These were the only local area State Champion Teams during 2011 and 2) This was the 6th time in the history of skiing in Minnesota that the same school has won both the Boys and Girls title (3 of them have been by Duluth East).


Position Description


Title: Marketing Manger


Hours: Full Time


Duties: Promote the Duluth East Nordic Ski Team to the student body at Duluth East High School, to the City of Duluth, to the Nordic Ski community in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Nationally and to the general public in Minnesota and Wisconsin. 


Use multiple forms of media such as:

  • Local newspapers
  • Nordic ski magazines
  • Web sites
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Posters

Position requirements:  A strong desire to move Nordic skiing into a mainstream sport at Duluth East and in the City of Duluth.  Success would be evident when attendance at local ski meets rivals that at ski meets in Norway.


Salary: Like most positions in Nordic Skiing - nothing, except for the warm fuzzies you get from the ski team.


Send your resume to the coaches.
