Unlock Your Potential – Performance days with Derek Tate

Derek has been working full time as an instructor since 1987 and is as passionate now about the sport as he has ever been. 

This excitement for the sport has been enhanced by a recent trip to Ushuaia, Argentina where Derek led a team from Ireland to attend and participate in the Interski Congress 2015. 

These “Unlock Your Potential” performance days are specifically aimed at helping YOU to be the best skier you can be. There can be many reasons why we struggle to ski as well as we can. And this can impact on your ability to learn and improve your performance. Derek will help you to develop your skiing by giving you the knowledge and then selecting the best drills and strategies to help you become more skilful. Whether you need to learn a new movement pattern (motor learning), block bad habits or make your performance stronger you will gain a greater understanding of how to train and become better. 

Each day will be a mixture of on and off piste skiing (depending on the conditions and individual needs of participants). Video analysis will be used to support the learning process. The days are suitable for those who are confident on piste and can manage off piste but would like to become more of an all mountain skier with the skills to tackle all terrain and conditions. 

The performance days will run mostly on Friday's during the season 9.30-3.30pm. 

 The days can be done stand alone or integrated into a seasonal programme for you.  We also have the Engage the Edge days with Shona Tate.
