Coaches Corner – Ladies Only

18 Nov

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.

Next up we have a piece by Jane Hall introducing the Friday Ladies Coach (fueled by Tea and Biscuits):


The ladies club on Friday mornings is a supervised session catering for all standards and ages; from recent beginner through to advanced skier.

Beginners take place at 9.30 -10.30 am on the nursery slope and we run through the basics, or remind you of what you used to know a few years back.

At 11am we move across to the main slopes for the improvers group and run a 2 hour coaching session dictated by the needs of who is there on the day.  We have a syllabus but are not rigid in our approach and will tailor lessons to suit what you want to work on; such as preparing for the snow.  We usually stop for a coffee at 12 noon in the chalet and then carry on until just after 1pm.

Ladies have started off as complete beginners and are now competent parallel skiers.  We have students, mums, ladies who fit skiing in round work and more senior ladies who’ll give you a run for your money.  All are welcome.  If we have another snowy winter, (bring it on), then trips could be organised up to Glenshee using the minibus.

The aim of the sessions is to encourage women to improve their skills, through regular coaching within a friendly and non-competitive environment.   The instruction is informal and can be adapted to look at techniques at your level.  Video analysis is offered at regular intervals.  We aim to have fun, meet up with like minded skiers and learn from each other.

See you there! Less shopping more skiing!
