To coach, is to educate and provide opportunities for personal growth and development. The ATC coaching team is very good and includes no less than four Olympians as well as a host of National team ski racers. ATC coaches work very hard to provide ATC athletes with the right technique, tactical tools and confidence to be the best they can be. Most importantly they make it fun!
Sean was an Olympian in 1992 (21st place finish). He won three back to back British Slalom titles as well as an Overall title and was ranked in the top 100 in the world. Forced to hang up his racing boots due to an injury sustained in Downhill at the ripe old age of 22, Sean started coaching and has been a key figure in the Alpine world ever since.
Having competed at the Olympics and on the World Cup Downhill circuit, Andy knows exactly what it takes to reach that level. Andy has coached the British Children's Teams. Coaching the very best talent Britain has produced in recent years. Andy also works as a BASI Trainer and examiner. He is a Level 3 coach, and more importantly, he's a superdad of 3 racing rippers!
Iain is currently on the British Ski Team and coaches with ATC when time allows from his rigorous racing schedule. Iain is National level 2 coach certified and has already coached at several of our ATC camps over the past three years. Needless to say, the kids look up to him and enjoy his action packed coaching style which is usually very entertaining as well as being full of hard work. Iain finds a balance of coaching and training during the summer months so you can expect to see him on the ATC camps from May to October.
Adam (Scottish Team 2010) is an experienced coach with his level 2 coaching qualification and instructor. He has worked for Kandahar Ski Club and Scottish Ski Club and Tillicoultry dry slope. Adam manages ATC's Scottish Schools Racing Programme, coaches the Braehead sessions, and helps to coach the Team ATC programme on the abroad camps.

Now, she is going to Aberdeen University and the past two seasons she has coached our weekend program in Scotland, and on our camps abroad. Her combination of technical knowledge, her angles, and personable pastoral care, make her the new ski camp favourite!
Murray is a European qualified BASI L4 Instructor and certified coach. Murray is a fantastic teacher and coach who can make progress with anyone at any level while having a great time doing it.

Based in Val D'Isere Murray runs a ski school during the winter and coaches at Hillend in Edinburgh for LSR when he is not coaching for ATC.
Jamie McWilliam grew up shredding the Gorm. His love of working with people and seeing them progress led him to become a ski coach as well as a full time school teacher. Jamie heads up the ATC coaching team at Cairngorm Mountain and also coaches the ATC FIS athletes with fellow coach Adam Piper on ATC camps abroad. Jamie has a great deal of experience coaching in Scotland, New Zealand and Europe over the last few years.
