IS AS EASY AS…
To get involved in the wonderful world of snowsports you don’t always have to slide and glide. You can get as much enjoyment from the sport helping others to get involved. Volunteers have always played a vital part in the sport and physical activity sector. Without them, most activity simply wouldn’t happen. Volunteers who give their time for sport and physical activity to happen enjoy many of the benefits associated with actually taking part. When someone provides their time, energy and expertise as a volunteer there’s a double benefit – for those doing the activity and for themselves.
Below are some of the opportunities that you can join in.
Coaching & Instructing
Becoming a snowsports coach or instructor is extremely fulfilling; whether it’s passing on your knowledge of snowsports to beginners or helping those who want to progress, we deliver high quality education and development for coaching, instructing and volunteering in snowsports at all levels and across all disciplines.
Volunteers & Officials
Volunteers play a pivotal part in our sport, it is incredibly rewarding and a great way to support the skiing and snowboarding community. As a volunteer you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in the dry slope ski races across the UK as well as playing a part in the English Alpine Championships, taking place every year in Bormio.
Schools & Universities
Any school or university can get involved in snowsports. As well as being great recreational activities, skiing and snowboarding are also beneficial for your physical and mental health and wellbeing. Engaging in the sport also provides a great opportunity to make new friends and learn new skills.
Get Fit To Ski
Snowsport England have teamed up with GB’s number one alpine skier Dave Ryding, leading fitness and health clubs David Lloyd and discount sports clothing and equipment website SportPursuit, to launch a new ski fitness video series ‘Get Fit to Ski’.
Go Ski Go Board
Whether you are a skiing or snowboarding beginner, want to improve your skills ready for an upcoming holiday to the mountains, or want to try something new, there are several slopes around the country offering hundreds of different activities. Find out what’s on in snowsports and get involved.
