Get involved and help develop the next wave of Canadian athletes.

partnership between CASI and the CSCP

Individuals who have completed the Canada Snowboard Coaching Program’s Competition Introduction Advanced (CIA) Course will be able to jump immediately into CASI’s Level 2 instructor certification program. Equally, instructors who have completed CASI Level 2 Instructor certification will now be able to bypass Canada Snowboard’s introductory coaching course and proceed directly to the Competition Introduction Advanced Course when beginning their training as a Coach. Both parties will receive a 20% discount on their registration fees. 


What is the CASI Level 2?

The goal of the Level 2 course is to develop a skills-based teaching approach for intermediate snowboarding, as well as an understanding of CASI technique and methodology, and the role of snowboard teaching within the industry. It combines practical snowboard teaching methods, technical understanding and development, as well as the development of guest interaction and technical analysis skills.

Candidates will receive coaching on their riding and teaching skills, with the goal of reaching the Level 2 standard in both areas. They will also receive suggestions and strategies for long-term development. The successful candidate is certified to teach snowboarders up to the intermediate level (skills and terrain).
