Register Now! Focus of Attention in Snowsports Webinar

Get ready for a special International Association of Education in Science and Snowsports (IAESS) webinar, Focus of Attention in Snowsports, taking place tomorrow, Oct. 5, at 9 a.m. MT.


This free webinar, featuring British Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI) trainer and examiner Derek Tate, will help you improve the skill of attentional focus in all your lessons while addressing the questions:

1. Is ‘focusing’ attention a skill that can be learned and improved?
2. Where should the learner direct their attention when learning a skill and when performing?
3. What are the key benefits of being able to be ‘intentional’ with your attentional focus?

Derek is an author, coach, and teacher. He writes mostly in the psychology/self-help genre but also about learning/skill acquisition and alpine ski technique, teaching, and learning.

As a coach he splits his time between alpine skiing and mental skills. As a teacher he delivers online courses, workshops, and masterclasses focusing on strengths, mindfulness, performance, and flow.

His background includes working as a trainer and examiner for BASI, Irish Association of Snowsports Instructors (IASI), and Snowsport Scotland. Over the past 18 years he has been running the British Alpine Ski School Chamonix together with his wife, Shona.
