The Coaching Pathway
 

The coaching pathway is designed to guide your training and skill development as a coach, providing you with the tools required to support athletes at successively higher levels of performance.

This pathway also mirrors the stages of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) plan. Stages 1-2 athletes are led by Instructors at snow-schools, so our coaching pathway begins with Stage 3.

New coaches begin their journey on the coaching pathway with the Competition Introduction Course. To learn more about this step, click here.
