New Teaching Children Snowsports Manual is Available Now!

Order your copy of the brand-new Teaching Children Snowsports manual and have at your fingertips all the tools you need to become a great children’s instructor.

This interactive, image-packed manual is full of approachable knowledge you can apply to every lesson – including on-snow teaching tips and insight into how kids think, how they react and socialize, and how they grow and learn to move.

Written by Mark Aiken (Eastern Division Advanced Children’s Educator Team member) and Kevin Jordan (a member of the PSIA-AASI National Team and Rocky Mountain Division’s Children’s Education Training Team), the manual draws upon LOTS of valuable insight from many of PSIA-AASI’s most legendary instructors to offer content that’s as engaging as it is informative.

“We strived for a conversational approach when writing this manual,” said Jordan. “It’s written to engage you in a way that helps you make good decisions when teaching kids.”

The new manual builds on PSIA-AASI’s Learning Connection to help you engage kids in the joy of sliding on snow and offers specific teaching examples on all types of equipment: alpine, cross country, snowboard, and telemark.

Order your print copy here. The digital edition of the manual is available for free for new and current PSIA-AASI members, visit the Digital Manuals page and scroll to the bottom to select the “digital” button for the Teaching Children Snowsports Manual.
