This note announces a new article that has been donated to the Premium Article Collection by Si (Simon Levine, Ph.D.) titled: Address Perceptions to Help Students Reach Proficiency

Excerpt:
Quote:
SKI TECHNIQUE is, always has been, and probably always will be one of the industry's most widely discussed topics. Good technique is certainly necessary to becoming a proficient skier, but sometimes even impeccable form can disappear when a skier is faced with perceptual barriers. At one time or another, most instructors have watched in disbelief as their star student - who executes textbook-perfect parallel turns on intermediate terrain - falls apart on steeper slopes. Both instructor and student know that he or she is fully capable of making controlled, parallel turns, but knowing isn't always enough. Memorized, mastered techniques and associated movements often dissolve when filtered through anxiety and counterproductive perceptions (realistic or not).

What an excellent subject! I'll read this in context with Weems's Sports Diamond. This is consistent with the points I have been hearing from Si since maybe forever. In the language of the Sports Diamond, we're talking about WILL. In my albeit brief experience as a skier and as an instructor, the excerpt from Si's article is THE issue. Let me rephrase that: THE ISSUE.
