Course content

Get ready to ride & teach


• TECH performance, rider analysis & biomechanics

• TEACH delivery & rider development

15 hours / either 3 or 5 days

The BASI Lv3 ’TECH & TEACH performance course’ comes in two different formats; either a 3 or 5 day option.  The 5 day course offers 5 on-snow sessions (15hrs) plus 2 evening theory workshop sessions.  The 3 day course is an intensive course with 3 on-snow sessions (15hrs). 

Each course covers rider analysis, biomechanics, TECH & TEACH theory including valuable practical performance development training under my guidance; plus practical teach delivery experience at peer level Beyond the Central Theme relating to the BASI Level 3 Assessment Criteria.

Technical performance coaching Beyond the Central Theme for each of the relevant strands will help you to build stronger foundations by understanding the ingredients of higher level riding, the inputs relating to the outputs and their application to appropriate task & terrain.

I’ll share my ‘eagle eye rider analysis’ formula and strategy that I use to match the riders performance to the BASI Level 3 PIA’s (Performance Indicator Analysis).

Performance or rider development is the foundation of great teaching and potent, rapid learning.  To help you grasp this, I’ll reveal the most effective order of task development, key teaching points, common faults, and how to make a progression out of anything using a variety of teaching styles. 

To achieve maximum results, this course is designed for attendance after completing my online BASI Level 3 TECH & TEACH Theory Masterclass courses3

What people say?

Renelle is probably one of the most amazing instructors I have every met! She is passionate, driven and joyful all in one. She has made me feel confident not only as an adaptive instructor (second discipline) but as a rider overall. The techniques and methods she uses will be stuck in my mind for as long as I teach. She is the main reason why I am switching back over to BASI to be the best Instructor I can be.
Max Alcock
Basi level 3 aspirant
I took a BASI course with Renelle in 2018 and found her teaching style and character to be utterly inspiring. I was was lucky enough to train with her in 2019 for Level 3 prep. Her passion for teaching is so unique and her ability to sense out and refine movements within my snowboarding is incredible. She has a truly special eye for snowboarding and delivers her lesson with constructive feedback, non stop fun and elevated energy.

Want personal performance coaching?


I believe coaching should ooze passion, be inspiring, emanate professionalism and empower each student to teach themselves.  I go the extra mile, providing clear, detailed, accurate information and I’m never afraid to be totally honest.  I do whatever it takes to hold a space for your to break through.  I sincerely want you to succeed, not only in your riding & teaching, but in your business and everyday life to. Deep to my core I’m dedicated to uphold the quality of our profession and elevate it beyond where it’s ever been before.  My passions are riding & snowboard teaching, human behaviour, health and biomechanics.  I want to share my knowledge, expertise & wisdom to pass on everything snowboarding has taught me, not only on the mountain but off hill too.  Let me help you ‘win at life’ and/or become an Elite Snowboard Coach.
