FS3 Information

Freestyle Specialist 3 is the expert-level freestyle education course for PSIA and AASI, and it includes an evaluation component. The course includes a written workbook; skiing/riding and teaching scenarios; and a technical discussion regarding how individuals learn and progress to advanced freestyle zones. Participants will integrate all knowledge, experience and skill for any and all applications of freestyle.

The FS 3 course is for instructors near the highest levels of professional development in freestyle coaching/instruction.

Evaluations of those taking the FS 3 course reflect the participants’ knowledge of safety in the freestyle environment, teaching freestyle, and possess the requisite skills necessary to demonstrate freestyle maneuvers to their guests. Successful completion of the course grants professional recognition to the coach/instructor for their education, experience, and expertise in freestyle. Depending on the division, this may be a multidisciplinary course.

  • Must be an active participant in course.
  • A passing score from divisional freestyle education staff based on the participant’s demonstrated knowledge, understanding, teaching, movement analysis, and on-snow movement as described in the standards below.

Experience Requirements:

  • Must be a current PSIA-AASI (or equivalent) Certified Level 1and attained FS 2
  • Must be able to ski or ride at current certification level
