Coaches Corner – Ski Adult Improvers

18 Oct

Over the next few months we are going to be adding articles written by our club coaches, these will vary in content from info about the club to sessions or events that have passed, or anything of note that is happening in the sessions. 

First up we’ve got an article from Mark Hall coach of the Thursday night adult improvers (fueled by coffee and Chocolate Hob Nobs)

‘Ive skied loads but you’ve really helped me to get a buzz out of my skiing over the last few weeks’;  ‘I can now carve those new shaped skis!’;  ‘Could you make me look smooth and cool in the bumps just like you!’  ‘Im not very confident after an injury. Can you help?’

These are some of the questions, statements, and challenges that Bob and myself have attended to over the last two years we’ve been running the Thursday night adult performance ski group.  I must say, it’s been great fun coaching all standards of skier, and ages. We have had regulars that span from 18 to 70 years young. Once the first feelings of skiing on plastic are absorbed the skiers quickly desire the next bump, jump or slalom to challenge themselves against. The support and camaraderie of the group really helps people settle in and progress. It’s not an instruction session but one were coaching takes each willing skier to new heights, to new understandings and to ultimately more enjoyment in their skiing. Great fun for all!

Join in every Thursday 7-9pm for adults who reach the minimum standard for slope use.
