SAINTE CROIX DES NEIGES FREESTYLE SECTION

Sports - Youth - Schooling

Unique in France this sport section has been approved by the Education Department of the region (Academie de Grenoble) and has been running for 3 years now.
We have today gained enough experience to propose a programme that perfectly matches the expectations of the youngs. This experience enables us to offer a challenging training programme in a safe and institutional environment. Individual and collective objectives rely on the group characteristics.
Beyond the sports successes (3/6, back, cork and other Lincoln... in powder snow and in park) we are developping a learning process in which each participant is considered as the key and the main responsible of his or her own project.
This year, our team has decided to particularly stress on the communication files and the image processing in order to open this section to the reality of the professional world (such as sponsoring and editing).
The pupil's self-achievement is our main target: autonomy, sense of responsibilities, creative and sports spirit, awareness of the safety rules, of the moutain environment, all those fields represent excellent maturity levers.
Organisation of the section

First term: 2 half-days per week of physical preparation and training (september/ december).

2nd term: 2 half-days per week , courses with free-style ski coaches (from december to the closing of the ski resort).

3D term: some occasional interventions ; the focus remains the final examinations.

Collège: on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
Lycée : on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
The freestyle section is supervised by professionals in their discpline (state-certified coaches) in ski, trampoline backcountry.

The Physical Education teacher provides the link between the educational staff and the freestyle section. He therefore may adjust the activity according to the pupil’s school results and behaviour.
The section’s coaches will drive the skiers to the appropriate places according the conditions.
Besides, the school nurse closely works with the freestyle section.

Finally, although the security rules are constantly repeated, the key to a safe training remains in the pupils' respect of those instructions.
