Introduction to Community Coaching (ICC) (10 hours)

The workshop is designed to teach parents and other beginning coaches how to deliver a series of age-appropriate skill development sessions under the supervision of more experienced coaches. The orientation is for skiers of all age groups with an emphasis on working with children under six years of age. Coaches will be taught basic coaching skills, how to teach the fundamentals of technique, growth and development considerations, how to create a motivating learning environment and how to set up a ski playground. There are no prerequisites except enthusiasm and the minimum age requirement of 16 years.

Community Coaching (CC) (16 hours)

This workshop is the second step in the NCCP progression. It provides essential training for coaches delivering an effective skill development program to children six to nine years of age (the FUNdamentals stage of skier development). It is designed to train coaches to teach children intermediate technical skills in an enjoyable way so that it is FUN to learn, to select games that reinforce the technical skills being taught, to design and lead on-snow sessions, and to select and prepare equipment for young children. Successful completion of the NCCP Introduction to Community Coaching Workshop is a prerequisite.
