A Successful Ski Class by Team Germany

The German workshop took us through the six ingredients that they believe create a successful ski class. These ingredients could also be applied to other snowsports disciplines.


The structure of the workshop was designed to give us an example of a successful ski class lesson with narration to highlight what is going on in the lesson and why. Specific attention was brought to the six key ingredients for a successful lesson (which you can see in the left of the picture below). I volunteered to be in the lesson which was delivered with creativity and energy. It was inspiring to ski with a World Cup hero, Fanny Chmelar. In the lesson there was a big emphasis given to an early, strong pole plant, this was a bonus to get an insight into some of their technical ideas during a teaching-focused workshop.
