JNR Freestyle Coaching
Snow Factor will be running a Freestyle specific coaching block from February 4th 2017. The coaching block will be open to children aged 11 to 15 years old and will be for both skiing and snowboarding.
If your child is comfortably able to ski or board down our entire main slope and has attempted one or two freestyle features then this is the next stage for them. This block of six sessions is designed to introduce children to the use of freestyle features and to start working on improving their tricks and style while having fun.

The Assessment Day
There will be an assessment day on Saturday 28th January from 8am-10am during which the children will be grouped together based on ability. All children who wish to attend the Snow Factor Freestyle block must book in for the assessment day. If any children are not of a suitable standard yet then they will benefit more from attending our after school club sessions and will be told what skills they need to work on before the assessment day for the Winter block. The Assessment will cost no more than a 2 hour lift pass. If your child proceeds to attend the freestyle block, the cost of this pass will be deducted from your payment.
There will be a maximum ratio of 7 children to 1 coach for both Skiing and Snowboarding.
There will be at least 2 freestyle features out on the slope each week for the groups to use. These features will be small in size and dictated by the park plan from earlier in the week. The features may differ from week to week although they will always be of a similar level to a Small Kicker (Jump) + Flat box or Roller + Flat-Down Box
The coaching team consists of fully qualified freestyle coaches. There will be one coach per group each week. The coaches will not always be working with the same groups every week and will move around.
The groups may not always be working on the features as some times it will be more beneficial to work on the slope instead.
Coaching is different to instructing. The Snow Factor coaches will seek to encourage more student input than on lessons and will focus on working together with each student to achieve agreed individual goals for the block. There may be weeks where individual students receive less feedback from the coach because there is seen to be more benefit from personal practise. The coaches will be filling in report cards to detail what is being worked on over the 6 weeks.
