The UKCP Coach Level 1 course is designed for those who seek to work as an assistant coach with children (specifically 5 -12 years old) and entry standard competitors within the Olympic events of alpine skiing, snowboarding and freeski (slopestyle and half-pipe).

The course aim is to provide you with the coaching methods required to coach and inspire young athletes.

The course programme includes two theory modules in the classroom and a practical application session on the slope. Generally, courses start at 9am and finish at 6pm. This will vary according to resort/facility so please check your confirmation email for your meeting time and location. You will be provided with your UKCP workbook at the start of the course.

As on all UKCP courses there is a full programme of training. It is your responsibility to adequately prepare yourself mentally and physically for this programme.

Equipment for UKCP Coach Level 1 Freeski

We recommend twin tips and freestyle boots and any ski that will allow you to ski switch (backwards) and perform the course assessment standard.

UKCP Freeski Level 1 Licensed Status


Students are assessed on their ability to coach and perform the following tricks:

·          ski switch confidently (backwards)

·          slide a box 50/50

·          side a box 90°

·          jump straight air on a box/jump of 4-7m

·          complete a grab on a straight air jump

·          complete 180° on small jump





The assessment and standard of execution are measured against the skill acquisition model presented on day two of the course. Your trainer will ensure that you have a good understanding of your ability in relation to the criteria.

Your coaching sessions will be assessed on day three, so make sure that you use the coaching episodes on day two to gain experience and a clear understanding of good coaching. You are not expected to be excellent coaches immediately, but be able to demonstrate that you can apply the principles that you will be shown on the first two days and be able to reflect on your performance (with the help of the trainer)..
