We believe coaches are the most critical factor in quality freestyle skiing programs.
BC Freestyle offers coach development courses in BC in partnership with the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association and the Coaches Association of Canada.
This section is designed to give an overview of how a coach is developed in Freestyle Skiing. CFSA has updated and revised much of its technical and theoretical coach course material to strengthen our two foundation pillars:
- Freeskiing Skills
- Acrobatic Skills
Our Coach “Pathway” is the direction and system a coach needs to acquire the knowledge and skills to develop freestyle skiers in all of our disciplines:
- Big Aerials
CFSA’s new Coach Pathway is developed and aligned with the National Coaching Certification Program and Long-Term Athlete Development from Canadian Sport For Life. Under the NCCP structure, our programs fall into the NCCP Context of coach training outlined below.
The coach is the most critical factor in making an excellent freestyle program through having fun and acquiring skills. Working with athletes takes a wealth of knowledge and skills achieved through experience, coach training and mentorship. Take the time to get updated each year and complete your certifications; you will be rewarded through your skier’s achievements.
