Level 200 Alpine Clinics
The Level 200 Alpine Technique and Tactics course is a 3-day course designed to build on the Alpine Ski Fundamentals introduced in the Level 100 clinic and on basic course setting principles. We will introduce racing tactics, and discuss its relationship with a racer's ability, the course and technical skills. Progressions will be presented that span all of our training modalities, from freeskiing through drills in gates and outside of gates and into race simulation training. Coaches will learn new gate drills to accomplish technical and tactical goals and will gain experience in setting these. Classroom discussion following the on-hill sessions will cover a more in depth discussion of tactics, course setting, course inspection, course reports, and race day planning. At the end of the clinic, coaches will have a strong understanding of the relationship between technique and tactics and will have a broad range of drills and exercises they can use to teach these skills. In addition, coaches will learn how to be more effective on race day to help their athletes perform with confidence and consistency.
