Snowsport Scotland – Pro Camps
Snowsport Scotland are pleased to announce Phase 1 of a new strategy for Park & Pipe in Scotland: ‘’Pro-Camps’’.
Snowsport Scotland ‘’Pro-Camps’’ are Park & Pipe training environments for Scottish club trainees and coaches, offering bespoke learning environmentsto progress and develop their practice. By supporting clubs from across Scotland, it provides an opportunity to train together and as a result the camps build community and collaboration to support progression and lift the Scottish Park and Pipe scene.
Earlier this month, Camp 01 of Phase 1 had 4 clubs, 6 coaches and 15 trainees from across Scotland in attendance at the Loading Bay, Glasgow’s indoor skatepark. The morning session focused on utilising their Freestyle room; a custom built room housing gymnastics floor, foam pit, trampoline and the GB Park & Pipe Super Tramp providing the perfect reduced-risk playground to learn-in.
Trainees were taken through Off-snow skill progressions focusing on movement across 3 planes of rotation as trick preparation for Camp 02. The afternoon skate session concentrated on the processes of skill acquisition and the fundamentals of movement that skateboarding so perfectly promotes.
Camp 02 will take the coaches and trainees to a specially commissioned Park & Pipe training venue to offer them on-snow high volume reduced risk trick progression.
Supporting the Park & Pipe pathway is a primary aim of these camps and as such the camps are accessible to all clubs with Park & Pipe program, to find out more on how your club can interact contact – firstname.lastname@example.org
