Introduction to Course Setting Clinics

The Introduction to Course Setting clinic is designed as an introductory level course where coaches can practice and learn about basic course setting, focused primarily on GS and slalom setting skills.  It is for coaches who have little or no course setting experience, but coaches who have been setting and want a refresher and feedback on their setting are welcome as well.  Each participant will have the chance to set a course in GS and slalom with feedback and guidance from the clinic instructor.  A classroom session will review key course setting concepts, rules and safety.  The primary objective of this clinic is to give coaches basic knowledge and confidence to begin course setting in the club environment, gaining experience through more practice on their own.

PRICE: $75 for USSA members, $100 for non-members.  Includes clinic and participant materials (course setting documents). Does not include lift ticket (most ski areas offer discounted lift tickets to clinic participants).

The registration closing date is firm, NO registration will be taken after this date.  Registration closes at 5pm EASTERN time on the date listed.
