DEVELOPMENT LEVEL COACH – LEARN TO TRAIN AND TRAIN TO TRAIN

Development level (DL) coaches are working with skiers in the Learn to Train and Train to Train development stages. 

Coaches in this pathway understand and use specific drills and exercises to develop fundamental ski technique in the free ski, gate training and competitive environments in preparation for the Train to Race stage. 

Development level coaches are educated in the course setting principles used in slalom and giant slalom at the U14 and U16 levels. Coaches safely apply fundamental teaching and learning principles during training and competitions to promote the consolidation of a skiers technique and application of tactics in giant slalom and slalom. Development Level certified coaches have the knowledge and expertise to safely guide skiers when learning speed and ski cross terrain management skills. 

Development Level coaches complete their Development Level Coach Portfolio prior to undertaking their Development Level Evaluation. Development level coaches focus on the developing proficiency in the coaching core competencies prior to evaluation: valuing, leading, interacting with people, problem-solving and critical thinking.
