In this period of pandemic, when the natural urge of children to move has inevitably been restricted, the mission statement of the South Tyrolean ski schools has become even more important.
Play, Sport and exercise promote the physical growth, the cognitive development, the social development, the emotional development and the differentiation of movement skills.
The practice of winter sports undoubtedly contributes to healthy growth.
for children between 5 and 12 years - for beginners and advanced skiers
A methodically structured exercise programme and additional lessons in the afternoon guarantee for a quick and steady learning success.
Beginners (yellow identification vest), who can not master beginners competencies yet (safe stopping, dodging), will meet at the Kinderland. The Kinderland offers the ideal prerequisites for obtaining competencies.
Advanced skiers (green identification vests), meaning those who can stop and dodge safely, and experts meet in the Kinderland on the first day, and wil be dividet into performance groups based on thier skiing skills.
The ski instuctor wil inform children about the meeting point for the next days. Instructors choose the respective slopes depending on interim goals and planned exercises.
Beginners will be divided into groups based on their age. During a short presentation period, advanced children are divided into different performance groups dipending on their skils. Preliminary grouping occurs in the Kinderland. In order to have homogeneous groups, instructors will make any required group changes on the slope afterwards.
Many families take advantage of Friday afternoon to ski together with their kids so the children can show them what they have learned. The "Yeti Club" course therefore ends after the prize awarding ceremony. Children, whose parents participate at the group lesson for adults, will be supervised until 3.15 p.m.
