Stoke Scorpions are a ski race club incorporated within Stoke Ski Centre on Festival Park, Stoke on Trent, ST1 5PU. We offer ski race coaching to children and adults and draw many of our members from those who have completed the higher level lessons at the Ski Centre.
Training is held every Tuesday evening throughout the year from 6.30pm to 8.30pm and also Saturday afternoons 1.00pm to 4.00pm and is open to anyone who, having been assessed by the coaches, meets the minimum standard of parallel turns and the ability to stop safely at speed. All of our coaches are qualified by and registered with Snow Sports England coaching scheme and are also registered as instructors with either SSE, BASI or CSIA.
As a ski race club our main emphasis is on the development of ski racing. Our younger members, who are just starting out compete throughout the summer and winter at different fun races held around the country by other ski clubs and of course at our own summer race events. We also have a number of more experienced skiers who compete for Stoke Scorpions at the highest level nationally during the summer and internationally throughout the winter season.
