Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@ajc2260626, Which governing body is running the course that you are considering, and what other courses have you done already ?

Don't you need to do the 2 day Introduction to Coaching course first ?

dont think so.... just says to be able to descend back piste with equipment on back and a snow sports qualification, which am guessing basi 2 is enough? if you haven't got that its says another type of snow sports qualification.... i will email them and ask..... do you have any incite in to the course?

The BASI coaching course is a relatively recent introduction. I did its predecessor which was the UKCP Level 1. BASI then withdrew from that partnership and set up their own one. I enjoyed the UKCP L1, but it was definitely race-coach focused, not coaching in the broader sense. There was very little skiing in gates - much more around how to coach than how to ski. I am not sure if the new BASI module is similar as they still accept my UKCP L1 as sufficient for the BASI L3 award. I think it also includes some elements of the common theory course that was also scrapped.

UKCP L1 is still an option for you, it's just that BASI will no longer accept it as the coaching module for the BASI L3 award. If you don't anticipate completing the BASI L3, and are interested in race coaching, the UKCP L1 might be an alternative and open up a new pathway for you to follow.

If coaching outside of a race environment interests you then the SSE L3 would be another option.

@kieranm, cheers mate, i think that i would rather keep on the basi pathway, just on the off chance i ended up managing to pass all the modules on that level.....

I did the basi 5 day course which I think is supposed to be equivalent of ukcp 1 and 2. The general standard of skiing was high with a few xracers, several level 3s and a couple who had passed the level 3 tech. It would be a good module to do early in the level 3 pathway because it contains elements of the old common theory relating to conditioning, diet and higher performance skiing. The assessment part was not too stressful although we couldn't do much course setting because of conditions and had to supplement what we did during the course with a log book submission to demonstrate experience of course setting/coaching scenarios.

@ajc2260626, Contrary to popular opinion.... tele is not at all hard on your knees. Quads may be in for a beating, but not knees wink
