Development Groups

Junior Development

The Tigers Junior Development programme delivers sessions from plough steering.
The sessions involve all aspects of good posture while plough steering, while increasing
the speed and tempo of each child’s turning. Feeling supported each child progresses
quickly to parallel steering. Our clear aim at this point is to set children on a
Long Term Athlete Development Programme in order for them to reach their full potential.


Technical Development

This programme is aimed at skiers who have made the step to parallel steering.
Focusing the skier's attention on continued good posture is imperative at this stage,
thus increasing each person's confidence to expand their range of movements.

Competition Development

Once good technique is established, participants start using markers,
stubbies and slalom gates to improve their racing ability. Working on mental preparation
and fitness is imperative at this level.
Fun competitions such as club and local races should be entered at this stage,
with progression to registered racer status.
