Slackline Australia uses professionally trained instructors to deliver structured lessons that teach more than just balancing safely on a slackline. Students are taught about accessing a powerful mind state where true potential can be achieved.
Slackline Australia has introduced slacklining to people from age 1 to 82 years old. Slackline Australia facilitates workshops with professional instructors, which are flexible in nature to suit your needs or your organisation’s needs.
If you want to become a professional slackline instructor or just enhance your teaching skills to enrich your local slacklining community, then you are in the right place!
Slackline Australia is the Australian national body for slacklining. Since 2007 Slackline Australia has led the way in Australia for this 40 year old sport, or as referred to in the community; this life changing phenomenon. Slackline Australia is leading the world with our Network of Professional Slackline Australia Instructors. With our unique slackline training structure, thousands of people have enjoyed the magical state that slacklining puts you in. Surfers have compared it to riding the ‘Tube’; Dancers have recaptured peak experiences; sports people have developed core strength and proprioception. These athletes have also minimised the risks of injury in their own disciplines through structured balance training and the development of faster reflexes.
With Slackline Australia you don’t need balance to get started, you just need to contact us to discuss the best course for you or your organisation (our current Director could only just walk 15m when he went through the instructor course!).
Interested in an exciting new opportunity? Slackline Australia also offers a Facilitator’s course to teachers, youth group leaders, outdoor leaders, fitness instructors or camp administrators.
Many slackliners from our courses have gone on to become slackline instructors or Slacklining Team Riders that have appeared on TV or in Magazines.
Slackline Australia supports slacklining in all forms and so our structures are continually evolving and building on what slacklining is today. The diagram below shows the various pathways within the Slackline Australia framework. At Slackline Australia, slacklining is taught by real slackliners.
There are a number of reasons why someone might like to pursue a slacklining instructor course:
To learn how to teach slacklining in the safest possible way.
To learn progressions for teaching slacklining, so that you can accelerate the learning of new members within your slackline community.
To access the knowledge and support of the Slackline Australia network of instructors so that you can negotiate access with councils and avoid getting slacklining banned in your area.
To understand risk assessment processes and liability with regards to slacklining in the community or within a place of business.
To become a commercial slacklining instructor and teach slacklining as a job / small business.
To connect with other slackliners around Australia.
To increase your knowledge of slacklining and improve your slacklining skills.
To join the network in their goal of progressing slacklining in Australia.
Where does the money go? The money goes toward paying the assessors for their time training you, reviewing your course work and supporting you with your own slacklining goals. A portion also goes toward our outreach programs; bringing slacklining to the rural areas of Australia.
