In this course we will discuss several techniques to teach slacklining, organize and manage courses. The focus lies on education, not rigging. But you have to demonstrate your ability to safely rig and supervise beginner slacklines in a workshop environment. This is not a course for beginners, if you want to participate, you have to be able to comfortably walk a 15m slackline and know how to setup small slacklines with a ratchet.
MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS
My name is Thomas Spöttl and i am the president of the austrian slackline association as well as the treasurer of the international slackline association. I started slackline in summer 2008 and since then it became my big passion. I have done lots of slackline courses for my local club in vienna which gave quite some experiences in how to manage and organize these.
In 2016 the austrian association founded its education committee which focuses on the development of a slackline instructor system for austria. In 2017 we harmonized our education system with the other members of ISA.
Back in november 2013, after discovering slackline by accident in Switzerland, I quickly got into highlining in 2014 with Remy Boser. From then on, we pushed with others the use of longer saggier highlines and after some long highlines projects, I started in the past months to focus on tricks on highlines. In addition to various beginner workshops I conducted, I had the opportunity to teach at the sport center of the university of Lausanne as a slackline instructor for more than two years. In collaboration with Guido Haefli, we tested different training methods and pedagogical tools for slackline beginners. Last spring, I participated in Lebanon to Crossing lines initiative as an instructor for slackline workshops with syrian refugees, which revealed the specific challenges of teaching methods adapted to kids with whom you can barely communicate verbally.
