Theme: “You’ve Got to Move It – Move It!”

Description:Come MOVE IT MOVE IT for two days and spend lots of time on snow with members of the Eastern Region’s Advanced Children’s Education Team! Children’s Academy will offer many opportunities to develop more creativity while crafting engaging, playful, exploratory kid’s lessons, and participants will slide away with a deeper understanding of how to address the challenges which can arise in teaching children. Four modules will be offered for every group:

  1. Kids FUNdamentals: Understand and explore how children exhibit the technical fundamentals, and how to use these fundamentals to build movement assessment skills and improve personal performance.
  2. Would You Rather?: In this session we will address less than ideal scenarios and challenges in lessons using creative problem-solving and decision-making skills to generate positive outcomes.
  3. Boredom Buster: What can instructors do to better engage students when lessons contain a variety of skills and motivations? Learn to use activities that work for diverse groups to develop a positive learning environment for all individuals.
  4. My Pockets Are Full: Explore how to use physical props and creative prompts to plan engaging and exploratory learning experiences that inspire productive movement on snow.

It’s going to be fun, we’re going to work, we’re going to move, we’re going to learn!This event is going to be an absolute blast and an educational boost for any instructor. All you need to bring is your experience or interest in teaching children to ski or snowboard, and you’ll leave with your pockets full!
