It’s important nowadays to keep active, especially when you are young. Gravity is a great opportunity for school children and young adults to start a sport that is truly rewarding.
LEARN LIFE SKILLS
Skiing for the first time can be daunting, but we’re here to help. We share best practice, knowledge and help each other fulfil our true potential while also learning social skills.
MEET NEW FRIENDS
Skiers are a friendly bunch. Getting outdoors is a bonus but making new friends with the same interests is a great incentive to pick up those ski’s and join us down the slopes.
Bring the benefits of professional coaching to your ski programme. Skiing is a true ‘sport for life’ building confidence and life skills in often challenging situations. Let us help you set up, or develop your ski club building a tailored training schedule for your students delivered by our expert coaches. Having brought through a number of skiers from a tender age to the British Childrens Ski Team you can be assured that your students will be in good hands.
Gravity has worked with leading schools over the last 10 years running after school ski clubs and delivering Skiing as a PE option within the school sporting curriculum. We can work with your students to work towards success in GCSE and A Level practical assessments as well as personal development through the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. From weekly indoor sessions in the UK to taking the team to the mountains to race, our coaches will deliver your school a comprehensive, quality service.
Gravity coaches are friendly and professional. As part of the Cambridge Ski Club I have been attending race training at the Snozone in Milton Keynes for a couple of years now, and I have always been happy with the service provided. Even though I was initially sceptical about indoor skiing, I found the training very useful as preparation for the ski season. The coaches – Glen in particular – give everyone useful feedback, so that the training sessions are enjoyable for experienced racers and beginners alike.Benedetta Pacella-Cambridge Ski and Snowboard Club Racing Captain
Glen and Gravity as a company have for the past 3 years done our trials for our school team. Their timing system is excellent and has provided us with really clear information on who are the fastest slalom skiers. Glen is extremely friendly and works well with the girls, providing them with coaching where necessary. We will be using Glen and his team again next year.Sophie Nicholas-Head of Skiing Godolphin and Latymer School
We had children from Winchester House School competing in the inter schools challenge in Les Houches, Chamonix. The Director of coaching and his staff were extremely professional in delivering a fantastic ski racing experience. They were highly knowledgeable about all the aspects of the sport and coached the children in a very professional manner.Warren Silman, Winchester House School, Northamptonshire

Our team selection service uses FIS Approved gates and TAG Heuer Timing system so that selections can be made with data back up to be fair and equitable to all candidates. Typical Team selection sessions are 2 hours and for up to 50 persons. Your school will have free practice and help with course inspection and advice on tactics before the timing is activated. You will then be presented with the data at the end of your session in printed form. After your team is selected we can then run optional race training sessions to prepare for the competition. We can also offer advice on equipment selection, ski tuning and work with your PE department to prepare your team physically.ENQUIRE TODAY
