PARK INSTRUCTOR 2

Who Should Take This Course?

You should take this course if you are a minimum Park 1 Instructor with a love of freestyle snowboarding and experience teaching in the park. You should have a desire to help students refine existing tricks and learn new ones safely and successfully. You should also be confident and comfortable both communicating and demonstrating refined basic freestyle riding skills in front of a group.

Am I Ready?

The Park Instructor 2 standards require you to pass both riding and teaching evaluations. In order to help you achieve success on the course:

  • The best preparation is experience. Spend time working as a snowboard instructor, honing your presentation, demonstration, analysis and class management skills.
  • Developing freestyle skills requires significant mileage; try to find ways to incorporate freestyle elements into your riding and make time to go through the park. You should be in good physical condition to perform all required maneuvers over the duration of the course.
  • Take a session with a current CASI Park Evaluator to get feedback on your riding ability in relation to the technical standard:

Cost:

Course $469.98 / Retest $135.03
*10% late fee added if registered after the deadline date. Taxes and lift tickets are not included in course fees.

Pre-requisites:

  • Current CASI Park 1 Instructor
  • Must be fluent in either English or French
  • Able to demonstrate comfortable and safe riding skills on intermediate freestyle terrain, including medium, and some large features.

Description:

The CASI Park Instructor 2 certification course is open to members with a minimum Level 1 Park Instructor certification. Candidates on the course will spend time exploring snowboarding technique and teaching methods as they relate to intermediate terrain park and freestyle snowboarding.

The Park 2 Instructor course is a developmental course, designed to help candidates refine their teaching and riding skills to safety teach students with previous freestyle experience. Using a combination of skill-based and maneuver-based teaching methods, understanding of basic and intermediate freestyle techniques, as well as lesson planning and effective communication skills will be addressed.

Candidates will receive coaching on their freestyle riding, as well as feedback on their teaching skills, with the goal of reaching the Park 2 Instructor standard in both of these areas. They will also receive suggestions and strategies for long-term development. The successful candidate is certified to take students into freestyle terrain, and teach intermediate maneuvers on small and medium terrain park features.

Course Duration:

3 days totalling a minimum of 18 hours (including evaluations).

How good do I have to be to pass the Park 2 course?
