The IASI Coaching Theory module is organised and run by Subzero Coaching who, like the Parallel Dreams Coaching Academy, are a Licensed Course Provider (LCP) for IASI

The Coaching Theory module is part of the IASI pathway towards the full certification of snow sport professionals.

The module is necessary to achieve the IASI Level 3 ISIA status and anyone with Level 1 and above can participate. The course is also valid as a refresher (CPD) for all levels of IASI qualification.


Module Aims
The Coaching Theory aims at introducing instructors to the fundamentals of strength & conditioning coaching, starting with the individual.

During this 3-day course we will introduce you to topics such as periodisation, posture, injury prevention, nutrition and psychology all of which help you to focus on what you, as a ski instructor, need to know to perform better and stay healthy.

Our hope is to give you enough knowledge to wake up your inner awareness, making you a better athlete as well as stimulate your curiosity on the different subjects, so you will be interested in keeping on researching on your own after the course.
