Course Description:

This two-day event is open to current Level 1 or Level 2 with aspirations for higher certification. Current Level 3 are welcome too, especially if they are working as a trainer in their home area or looking for a way to keep up with their skills. This event will offer the latest information and techniques regarding teaching coming out of PSIA-AASI National. Whether you are preparing for an exam or want to deepen your teaching skill to become a more current, higher quality instructor, this clinic will help any Central Division level I, II, or III certified instructors.

First Day

What: Participants will have an opportunity to learn about, practice, and perform tasks (benchmarks) in a controlled environment under the guidance of current examiners. The course is designed as a type of exam prep but not the only method for doing so. In this event, the focus will be on tasks, the necessary movements to perform, and how those movements apply to everyday skiing.

Why: Although not scored directly, task skiing is a part of all Central Division exams. Understanding how to perform them, how the movements of a given task fit into contemporary skiing, where tasks should be practiced and executed, and how to develop skills in one's skiing will lend itself to better performances in exams and more effective skiing in general.

How: Starting with basic movements for each benchmark and increasing in difficulty in task & format, participants will develop an understanding of the mechanics required to accurately ski each task and understand how/why such activities are building blocks for efficient skiing

Second Day

Who: Any Central Division certified level I, II, or III instructors looking to strengthen their knowledge and techniques in teaching. This event can be an excellent clinic for on-hill teaching exam preparation.

What: The second day starts with movement analysis (based on the MODDS model) and moves into building an appropriate and exciting lesson plan based on the Five Fundamentals, the Teaching Model, the Learning Connection, and producing effective progressions.

Why: We can all become better teachers, whether in the "real" environment of our everyday lessons or the pressure cooker of the exam environment. This clinic will provide the most up-to-date tools to improve your teaching.
