Whether you are taking your first steps into instructing or coaching or looking to develop your skills further, we have some useful information to help you #PassOnYourPassion

The UK Snowsport Coaching Scheme embodies the concept of Core Skill. This means that, as instructors and coaches, one of our goals is to help our skiers or snowboarders develop skills that enables them to do what they want to. So we need to teach them in a way that keeps their options open, to enable them to enjoy the sport in a way they want. Developing adaptable and versatile skiers and snowboarders will build a lifelong love of Snowsport.

Whilst we may be teaching people on an artificial ski slope today, they may pursue the sport in many ways in the future at home and abroad.
