TBR: FREESKI HEAD COACH - JOHNNY LIPZKER
TBR is set apart by our genuine passion for the sport of freestyle skiing. This passion drives our relentless attempt to refine our program structure and coaching technique. We believe in the importance of a holistic all-mountain skiing skill set to ensure maximised all round athlete development – we aim for all TBR athletes to be able to ski any mountain in any condition.
Our unique focus on the maximised all round development of our athletes combined with a strong club history of professionalism, cutting edge training programs and close relationships with the worlds best coaches and athletes is the cornerstone of our continued success at all levels of our sport.
TBR: FREESKI is a competition focused training program for skiers aged 14-20 who have either progressed through the TBR: GROM program or already possess the required TBR: PLATFORM technical skiing skill set.
The TBR: FREESKI philosophy is about skiing the mountain; anything, anywhere, depending on what’s best that day. Special attention is given to slopestyle skill development, a recent debutant at the 2014 Sochi winter Olympics.
Areas of training include: jumping, rails, skiing the whole mountain, fun carving, free bumps and of course making the most of any fresh powder snow that falls.
TBR: FREESKI aims to foster a level of skill development and passion geared towards progression to maximise opportunity for growth and experience within the freeski industry including competition, sponsorship and media shoots.
TBR: FREESKI intends to achieve its aims by creating an active learning environment, focusing on skiing the entire mountain, trampoline training utilising the TBR: ACROBATIC FACILITY at Mt Buller and building a bag of tricks in the MBP terrain parks.
To aid progression and skill development TBR will establish a dedicated big air facility on Chamois for the exclusive use of our skiers. This facility will complement the top notch park set-up to be designed and maintained by MBP.
TBR:FREESKI coaches are some of Australia’s best all round and most progressive skiers.
