									Course Information: Snowboard Freestyle Development Coach L2 Snowboard Freestyle Development Coach Level 2 This 4 day course is the second level of the Development Coach and is aimed at improving the student's understanding and knowledge of drill progressions, improving the student's understanding of their own performance based on bio-mechanical principles and also how to apply this understanding to performance snowboarding. The required skill level of the course is based on a series of drill progressions that highlight strengths and weaknesses and a basic level of freestyle skills that are fundamental building blocks for all other tricks. It is an action packed course that covers basic park and pipe skills and safety and is targeted at former athletes wishing to forge a career as a Snow-sports Coach and also at instructors and coaches wishing to enhance their qualifications and knowledge through developing a greater understanding of snow-sports performance. Coaching Modules Development Coach Level 2 - 4 day The Development Coach Level 1 and Level 2 are offered together with a day off in between courses or you can take each level on their own.
