I just started my job as a ski instructor at the local hill a couple of weeks ago teaching kids aged 4-8 how to ski. I've found that I am having a difficult time coming up with games and the like to promote the skills we should be teaching. Does anyone have any suggestions- games or analogies for turning on two skis and proper rotary, edging, and balance movements. I mostly teach never evers. Also, does anyone have any advice on how to deal with the "complainers"? Or the younger ones that cry for their parents? I am completely at a loss on how to respond in these situations.
Thanks so much!
