A big thank you to Hampshire Social Services for running two Safeguarding courses (formerly Child Protection) for us at Alpine Snowsports on 26th September and 3rd October 2016.
ASD/SSCD Grade 3 Guide Disability Awareness Course
After the success we had in 2015, we managed to book the SSCD training team to deliver their Disability Awareness Grade 3 Guide Course at Aldershot again in August 2016.
The course enables participants to gain a better understanding of the equipment and our adaptive techniques, including sit skis, and equipment such as training bars, tethering, delivering parts of a lesson using non verbal communication (a hearing impaired session) and skiing with specially adapted goggles to experience partial sight before being set off to ski blindfold down the slope with instructions being given by radio.
Training Subsidies for Volunteers
The Club has funds available to support volunteers with any training requirements that benefit members. To find out more please contact the Chair or Treasurer for more information.
