L3 Teach Clinic- Brighton @ Brighton, UT
Mar 13 @ 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
This clinic will explore various movement analysis strategies. The first objective is to progress the potential candidate’s ability to interpret movement with the intent of determining cause and explaining effect. The ultimate goal is to be able to prescribe skill modification to a student on expert or black terrain. Candidates will work with peers in developing a triage for modification and improvement of existing skills. They will also investigate elements associated with a good upper level lesson including areas such as how to effectively coach drills and exercises as well as apply them in a free skiing situation, pacing of the upper level student, and development of different teaching styles appropriate for students with higher levels of knowledge and skill. By the end of the clinic, the participant will: – increase their proficiency at objective movement analysis – be better prepared at prescribing efficient skill modification – been exposed to varying drills and exercise in which to achieve skill acquisition goals – have a greater understanding and appreciation of pedagogy in the ski teaching environment, especially at upper levels This clinic is essential for those taking the Level III teaching assessment, and may be taken multiple times until the potential candidate feels comfortable and prepared.
