Level 1 Coach On-Snow Technique Courses – July 23/24

Looking to update your knowledge of ski techniques or tick off another component of your XC ski coaching qualification? Level 1 XC Coach On-Snow Technique Workshops will be held at both Perisher and Falls Creek on the weekend of July 23/24.

These workshops cover the basics of teaching classic and freestyle cross country skiing techniques, what to look for when assessing skier technique, using apps and video for evaluating technique, and tips and tricks for getting everything to “click”. For past coaches it will also be an excellent opportunity to refresh your understanding of ski technique and see if much has changed in recent years.

The Perisher workshops will be presented by the ACT/NSW Winter Coach Jeremy Hecker. The Falls Creek the courses will be presented by AUSXC Falls Creek Training Centre Coach Robert Jones and BNSC Winter Coach Kristian Holmsen from Norway. A pre-requisite for all courses is to complete the Australian Sports Commission Basic Coaching General Principles, online through the ASC website prior to attending the course. All participants will be provided with a Snow ID via Snowracer. More details will be provided following registration.
