Austrian Coaches

Message from Sally Bartlett:

An opportunity has arisen to continue on some of the momentum created from the regional coaches conference earlier in the summer...

I have two highly qualified and respected Austrian coaches, Hans Jenewein and Georg Messner (see their details below), coming over to the UK, to take some training sessions at Hemel snow centre. They have offered to take a 'coach exchange of ideas session'.

Coaches CV's:-

Hans Jenewein:

  • Tyrolean Ski Federation Trainer
  • Physical Trainer of Tyrolean Ski Federation    
  • Planning & Administration Director of International Ski  Academy Stams.

Georg Messner:

  • Physical Trainer of Tyrolean Ski Federation
  • Tyrolean Ski Federation Trainer
  • Runs and owns the Snowsport Georg Messner Ski School

At the Regional Coaches conference, everyone was keen for an on snow session. Hans and Georg have a very busy schedule while they are here, but would be available to take a race coaching evening:

Venue: Hemel Snow Centre.

Date:  Evening of Thursday 22nd July.

Participants: All interested race coaches.

Aim: To exchange Austrian ideas and ways to coach, with UK ideas.

Cost: tbc

- Snow Centre need £25/person for slope fees - for a session of up to 4 hours

- Hans and Georg would need to get paid! - some of this could hopefully come from participants, but to keep the cost down and encourage coaches to attend would LSERSA/ERSA/SRSA etc. be interested in donating some money??)

Hopefully an idea brainstorming session like this will help to re-juvenate coaches ideas and current procedures for coaching. (And maybe we can give some ideas back to Austria!!)

Please let me know what you think as soon as possible, as I need to book a time slot with Hemel and Hans and Georg. If you feel it is a good idea, hopefully between us we can forward the details onto coaches who may be interested.

If you are interested (those who have already confirmed to Sally do not need to do so again) please drop Sally an email.
