Line Progression Skills and Drills

This progression is designed to allow racers find the correct turn shape and line. A "wall" of gates are made in the shape of the desired turn. A track or rut will begin to form. Gates are removed as the drill progresses. Racers should stay in the track that has already been established. The progression continues until only the turn gate remains. Stubbies and brushes gates are the best for this drill because of the reduced visual input for the athletes and the workload on the coach. Setup: Brushes and gates can be swapped. The distance and offset can be tailored to the upcoming events, but for this example we will use a 15 meter Panel set with slalom skis. Courses length of 6 to 12 g
