Description

              

INDOOR CLASSROOM TRAINING FOR SKI & SNOWBOARD VOLUNTEERS!

We love your dedication no matter what your wishes are; we need lots of volunteers at all levels. To better grow this program, we need to increase the teaching knowledge for those who wish to learn and give more hands-on experience in a comfortable learning atmosphere.

 

Fitting clients in the proper equipment takes time and is possibly the most important aspect of the lesson.  If they're not fitted properly, they'll struggle during their lesson and possibly not enjoy this choice of active lifestyle we love so much!! The more people who have a better understanding of why we decide which equipment is best to use for each specific athlete and how to get a proper fitting means we ALL get out on the hill faster!  

 

During these training dates we will introduce adaptive equipment, the athletes who will use it, and how to make it all work properly.  We will also go over the various disabilities we may encounter at our programs and do an awareness training to help prepare us for the participants.

 

WHO CAN ATTEND?  Any volunteer who wishes to learn MORE and receive an introduction to the equipment our clients ski with!

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT? To acquire the fundamental knowledge of adaptive skiing, snowboarding and working with individuals with disabilities. There will also be snacks and refreshments at this event

 

HOW SHOULD I DRESS? This training will be held indoors so dress as you please.

 

TIMELINESS -  We make every effort to adhere to our schedule, and we need everyone involved in the program to respect posted times.

 

**Please RSVP at least 48 hours in advance so we can prepare for adequate refreshments and handouts.
