Snowboard

CHILDREN AND ADULTS - 6 YEARS OLD +

 

Terrain

Levels

Goals

Beginner

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

W1
Step 1
Challenge

Develop a good position and balance.Initiation to pressure transfer and direction change. Side slipping with one foot attached to the board for balance and speed control.

 

W2
Step 2
Challenge
 

Further development of the balanced body position. Strapping the back foot in (both standing and sitting). Control of speed while side slipping with both feet attached to the Board.
 

 

W3
Step 3
Radical
 

Initiation of rotational movements in the body. Development of beginner turns on both the heel side and toe side. Controls speed (on both edges) in a sideslip by flexing the hips, knees and ankles at the end of the turn.

Intermediate

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

W4
Setp 4
Vertical
 

Beginning to develop of fore / aft & rotational balance. Initiation of vertical balance through flexion movements. Linking toe side and heel side turns with enhanced stability through a lower center of mass.


 

 

W5
Step 5
Vertical
 

Initiation of vertical balance through flexion movements. Increasing edge angle by using hips, knees and ankles effectively. Increased speed while turning.
 

 

 

W6 
Step 6
Mega

 

Starting to carve the snowboard. Improvement of stability and control by increasing movements of angulation and flexion. Demonstration of edging at the fall line. Improvement of timing and coordination in the linking of turns at higher speeds.
 

Advanced / Expert

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

W7           
Step 7
Mega 2
 

Improved lateral balance at the start of the turn. Edging earlier in the turn – above the fall line. Improvement of stability and control by introducing bumpy terrain.
 


 

 

W8
Step 8
Mega 2
 

Development of terrain adaptation skills. Improvement of pressure control in carved turns. Improvement of steering, and timing and coordination skills. Ability to perform shorter-radius turns on black slopes. Ability to perform carved turns with board performance


 

 

W9
Step 9
Extreme
 

Improvement of linked short radius turns at a higher speed through better timing and coordination of edging, pressure control, and steering movements. Development of performance by using the resultant pressure from the board (rebound).


 

 

 

W10 
Step 10
Extreme 2

 

Ability to ride in various snow conditions and adapt to uneven and on bumpy terrain. Ability to manage pressure by changing edges in a flexed position. Ability to ride switch, or fakie across a variety of terrain.
