EOTC at Snowplanet
Who knew Education Outside The Classroom could be so much FUN!
Snowplanet can cater to all of your school’s needs. Our friendly instructors use progression-based learning and motor skill development to make students’ experiences with Snowsports one to remember.
We offer Snow FUN and Snow PE products to achieve this:
Snowplanet’s Snow FUN products are free-flow sessions in our unique snow dome that provide an opportunity for students to develop in:
• Health and Physical Education
• Participation and Contribution
• Enhance all areas of Hauora
• Learn and develop new motor skills
• Education Outside the Classroom
School Tubing is a fun experience or reward for School Groups where they can experience the snow and the thrill of tubing in a safe but exciting environment. Tubing is suitable for all abilities and requires no formal instruction or training, so it is quick to get into and participate.
School Snowsports introduces students to skiing and snowboarding in an adventurous and encouraging environment with experienced staff that make their first time on snow one to remember. The class is non-structured with Snowplanet Instructors merely supervising, encouraging students and offering tips as students engage in experiential learning.
School Freeride offers students the opportunity to challenge themselves on the slopes. Students may be experienced at Snowsports, or want to participate and contribute at their own pace with the help of their peers during this non-supervised session of skiing and snowboarding.
Snow PE can be taken as a one-off visit or as part of a tailored program over a number of sessions. We customise each Snow PE session for skiers and snowboarders from beginner through to advanced.
1hr Snow PE
Our 1hr Snow PE class streams skiers and snowboarders into small classes based on their level and ability. Classes offer structured learning and progression with the sole aim of taking students to the next level. Our instructors can customise content to the NZ curriculum.
4hr Snow PE
Our 4hr Snow PE class combines the benefits of our 1hr Snow PE lesson with an additional 3 hours freeride allowing students to participate and contribute at their own pace with the help of their peers during the non-supervised part of this session.
Term Programs/Multiple Visits
If you’re interested in bringing your students to Snowplanet for a number of visits, Snowplanet can create a Snow PE program ranging from beginner to advanced, as well as prepare students on our “Pathway to the next level” racing program. Term programs are typically 1 hour sessions, run weekly for a set number of weeks in the term.
A term program is fantastic for building confidence as well as developing the ability of students involved.
Health & Safety at Snowplanet
The Snowplanet team is committed to ensuring snow experiences for all our customers are as safe and enjoyable as possible.
We strive to maintain a safe learning environment for all students, teaching them slope safety, correct technique and ensuring they are comfortable with the exercises they are completing.
Helmets are compulsory at Snowplanet for all students participating in Snowsports and included in all packages. Helmets are not required when Tubing. Wristguards are highly recommended for snowboarders.VIEW RISK ANALSIS AND MANAGMENT FORM
