Landsafe is coming to Grand Farms!
December 1-3, 2017
Before any gymnast steps onto the beam or tumbles on the floor they receive training in fall techniques so that they understand the proper placement of their body to prevent injuries. LandSafe leverages these same techniques and principles to teach riders specific fall and body placement techniques. This training helps riders to limit the chance of injury or death in a fall scenario.
Until now, a vital component has been absent that could make a difference in the outcome of a fall. That is rider education, regarding fall safety. LandSafe is a comprehensive training program that teaches riders not only a better way to navigate a fall, but also by using these skills in many cases may reduce chances of injury, but also may prevent a fall all together.
And now, Landsafe is coming to Grand Farms to help you develop the skills you need to potentially prevent a fall, and should a fall occur, which may protect you from serious injury. Plus, you will have a lot of fun!
What happens at the clinic?
This session provides you with an opportunity to see for yourself the difference rider education can make to a fall scenario. The segment will feature the following activities:
Two hours of gymnastics skill building will start your day. Here you will learn the correct ways to shape, roll, position arms and wrists, balance, body awareness and the control needed to become competent in a dive roll. The next two hours will be spent transferring these skills to the simulator.
We will revisit the basic gymnastics skills learned on day 1 and look for ways for you to develop stronger skills while working at home. The time spent is dependent on progress of skills, hoping to be 1 to 1.5 hours.The second part of day two will be devoted to skills on the simulator, building speed and difficulty as each individual makes progress.
This program is designed to teach the basic skills to improve your body awareness and self-preservation!
The Full Clinic runs December 2-3 and has limited participants - once registrations are full, we will open a wait list. Participation in the full clinic is open to anyone 14 years of age or older. The Full Clinic is $350
This session is for participants age 16 and under. This involves two hours of the gymnastics and muscle memory development for self preservation that are covered in the full clinic. It does not involve the simulator. Junior clinic participants are however welcome to attend the full clinic as an auditor free of charge.
The Junior Clinic runs on December 1. Our plan is to offer the clinic from 3-5 pm so kids don't have to miss too much school, but if we have a lot of demand we will open up another session 12-2 pm. The Junior Clinic is $100.
Auditors are welcome to register to join us for one day, Saturday and Sunday, or all three days. Junior clinic registrants are welcome to audit Saturday and Sunday free of charge, and all registrations come with one free audit ticket. Other audit tickets are $25 for one day, $40 for Saturday and Sunday, and $50 for all three days.
How do I register?
Please register using the form below (If you don't see the form on your device, be sure to select 'web' at the bottom of the page'). Please submit a separate registration form for each clinic participant (you can purchase additional auditor tickets on the same form, but remember each clinic participant will receive one free auditor ticket, and Junior Clinic participants may audit the full clinic free of charge). Spaces are limited to ensure everyone has plenty of time to practice the skills. Once registrations are full we will open up a waitlist.
Once you complete the form, you will be directed to a paypal site to complete your payment. Cancellations will be refunded (less a $25 admin fee) only if we can fill your space from the waitlist. You may be able to transfer your registration to another participant, but they must be eligible to participate (that is, 14 years of age or over for the full clinic, 16 years of age or under for the junior clinic), and you must let us know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org before September 20. Priority will be given to applying cancellation places to the waitlist before transfers will be permitted. Auditor tickets are non refundable but are transferable.
