Update November 2023:
Freestyle Canada Coach Academy:
What has been known as the Supercoach Academy for many years is now named the Freestyle Canada Coach Academy. Our “Academy” concept is broadening to include modules from the CompIntro (Supercoach) and CompDev NCCP contexts and not only the Supercoach program. Both the coach and athlete development needs have changed since the COVID pandemic and with these changes, Freestyle Canada and our leading sport experts will focus more resources on coach education at all levels. Also, we see the importance of putting more emphasis on the CompDev program education to strengthen the skill level of our athletes at the Learn & Train to Compete / National / NorAm levels in all disciplines.
We are proud to announce the 2024 Freestyle Coach Academy will run again in Whistler this coming spring. Here are the courses and general schedule, we will update this page with more detailed dates of each module by early February;
- CompDev Slopestyle / Big Air / Doubles on Air Bag and Doubles on Snow: April 22 – 28
- CompDev Doubles on Air Bag & Snow
- CompDev Moguls May 2 – 7
- Supercoach Modules: April 25 – May 12, exact modules and their individual dates TBC in January 2024
- Coordinate PSO team training blocks & separate Academy block
We will also be running:
- CompDev Halfpipe with Doubles on Air Bag and Doubles on Snow: March 23 – 29 TBC in CALGARY at WinSport
In addition, CompDev Coach Cohort
“NEW” Freestyle Canada has created the Cohort in which we have selected our top coaches currently coaching Train & Learn to Compete level programs and need their education and certification in their given discipline – ASAP. This program is a pilot Project for the 2023-2024 season and intends to see at least 12 coaches obtain certification by November 2024. If all goes well, we hope to run the CompDev Coach Cohort annually.
