This 2-day event explores the CAP model (how kids think, move, and feel) and teaching progressions for children in different age zones. We will also explore children’s movement patterns “kids moveology”, and work on your own skiing/riding skills and improvement. On day 2 we cover building kid friendly teaching progressions with the Play Drill Adventure Summary method as well as focus on your own skiing/riding development. We’ll finish the day with informal group teaching presentations. This is a pass/fail event.Prerequisites:
