Course Description:
Course Name: Snowboard Development Team Tryout
Discipline: Snowboard
Time: 2 Days
Credits: 12 Continuing Education Credits
Environment: Black Diamond
Prerequisites: Minimum Level III Certified
Course Description:
This will be a Team of dedicated and talented snowsports pros who want to actively and passionately contribute to the professional growth of the Eastern Division as well as push themselves to achieve their own personal growth. The ultimate goal is to help the Eastern Division provide the best snowsports education and certification possible. In addition, some members of this Team may choose to represent the Eastern Division at the National Team Tryouts.

Learning Experiences:
We work hard on keeping the tryout format as stress free and close to life as we possibly can. Expect there to be lots of skiing or riding as well as group discussion throughout the tryout. You can expect to ski or ride at the National Level III standard. Candidates will be expected to understand and perform tasks exceptionally well as these are the tasks that our members see in their exams. Successful candidates will show the following throughout the tryout:
Solid Skiing/Riding performance with the current level 3 national standards as a minimum standard.
Potential - Indicators include, but are not limited to:
• Coachable athletes.
• Solid team players.
• Solid communicators.
• Open minds, willing to explore different approaches to skiing/riding and teaching.
• Thought - strong candidates will show that they are not only recipients of knowledge, but participants in the thought process.
Technically accurate content.
All successful candidates will have a mix of these characteristics, excelling in different areas, but proficient in all. In other words, there is subjectivity to this tryout, no differently than there is in the hiring clinics at your schools. The best skiers and riders are often times not the best teachers, and vice versa. Often times, the most valued instructor at a ski area is neither the best skier NOR the best teacher, but their combination of the above characteristics mix together to create a truly gifted instructor. Best of luck with your Professional Development should you desire to become part of the Development Team!

    PSIA-AASI Eastern Division
    Event Participant Safety Policy

    Skiing and riding are athletic and physically demanding activities. It is the expectation of PSIA-AASI Eastern Division that each participant attending an event or exam shall possess the requisite level of fitness and stamina to participate safely, on all appropriate terrain and at a pace consistent with other members of the group. As such, PSIA-AASI Eastern Division reserves the right to have education staff reassign participants in any event that may pose a risk to themselves or others or consistently impede the progress of the group to another, more skill and fitness-appropriate event. In such a situation, an appropriate event will be recommended and the member may be transferred to that event at no charge (other than any difference in event costs) or a full refund of the originally registered event will be provided.
