Leadership of skiing and snowboarding groups on the mountains in alpine resorts is a challenging but highly rewarding activity.

The Snowsports Course Organiser (SCO) course has been developed to give leaders confidence to organise a safe, successful and enjoyable snowsports holiday. It is a one day workshop, covering all aspects of the safe organisation and management of a school snowsports course. The course is certified by attendance and it is now a requirement for the lead teacher on the holiday by most local authorities before they will grant permission for the trip to take place.

TGM have worked with Snowsport England to host SCO courses in the North West for many years. The course is one day (6 hours) duration and will cover a range of topics including;-

  • Aims and Educational Potential of a Snowsports Course.
  • Selecting a Snowsports Course
  • Planning a Snowsports Course
  • Running a Snowsports Course
  • Snowsports Clothing and Accessories
  • Snowsports equipment
  • Fitness
  • Climate and Weather
  • Snowsports safety

Courses are led by an experienced tutor appointed by Snowsport England and are delivered in an informal and interactive style. One of the main benefits of attending a course is the opportunity to share experiences and ideas with other leaders thus improving the overall experience for participants.

Although the course has lifetime validity it is always useful to attend a refresher if it is some time since you last did the course.

Tea, coffee, lunch and learning materials are all included.

VERY limited places available. For further information please  contact Keith or call Keith 07515 588948
