Coaches' Academy at Mammoth

Article text
During the Academy, there were presentations on racing technique and tactics by US Ski Team coaches (Ben Black, Wade Bishop, Mike Day, Jeff Pickering, Chip White). We also attended lectures on anatomy, athlete development, motor learning, movement analysis, mental skills, pedagogy, and physiology - by Lester Keller, Ron Kipp, Jon Nolting and Jennifer Stielow from USSA, and Stacey Gerrish from Vail Resorts.
On snow, we worked on skills and drills with Robin Barnes, Mike Rogan and Dave Lyon from PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America), and gate drill progressions with the USST coaches.
A most informative and interesting week.
