Unlock Your Potential with Derek Tate

Derek has been working full time as an instructor since 1987 and is as passionate now about the sport as he has ever been. 

This excitement for the sport has been enhanced by a recent trip to Ushuaia, Argentina where Derek led a team from Ireland to attend and participate in the Interski Congress 2015. 

These “Unlock Your Potential” performance days are specifically aimed at helping YOU to be the best skier you can be. There can be many reasons why we struggle to ski as well as we can. And this can impact on your ability to learn and improve your performance. Derek will help you to develop your skiing by giving you the knowledge and then selecting the best drills and strategies to help you become more skilful. Whether you need to learn a new movement pattern (motor learning), block bad habits or make your performance stronger you will gain a greater understanding of how to train and become better. 

Each day will be a mixture of on and off piste skiing (depending on the conditions and individual needs of participants). Video analysis will be used to support the learning process. The days are suitable for those who are confident on piste and can manage off piste but would like to become more of an all mountain skier with the skills to tackle all terrain and conditions. 

The performance days will run mostly on Friday's during the season 9.30-3.30pm. 

 The days can be done stand alone or integrated into a seasonal programme for you.  We also have the Engage the Edge days with Shona Tate.

Engage the Edge with Shona Tate

Shona was literally born on skis, has worked and skied around the World but has been very fortunate to be based in the Chamonix area each Winter for the last 13 years.

Currently Shona works most weeks in the Winter in Chamonix and the surrounding resorts but also works with the British and the Irish Associations helping to train and grade top level skiers through to peak performers developing both technical and teaching skills.  Having recently been to the the World Interski Congress in Argentina Shona is excited about this coming Winter and sharing the skills and techniques from around the World with you.

The days will consist of on piste (or off piste if conditions are suitable) technical skill development drills and muscle memory techniques to help you improve your overall balance and ski performance outcomes.  Video analysis will be used on the hill to support the intrinsic feedback and increase your awareness of your motor movements and biomechanical position.  The days are suitable for those who are comfortable on piste and can ski off piste in a fashion but wish to improve efficiency and power to ski faster and stronger with more confidence in all terrain.

The days can be done stand alone or integrated into a seasonal programme for you.  We also have the Unlock Your Potential days with Derek Tate.
