Spring Training 2023
Saturday, March 4, 10am-5pm CT

We are SO pleased to offer our first virtual training event in spring 2023, in partnership with COMET/MetEd!

 

Spring Training offers foundational, operational and accessible information and training material for storm chasers at all levels - from those who want to begin their chase education or brush up on the basics, to more advanced chasers wanting to learn more in-depth about specialized topics. Just like in baseball, we gather every spring to shake off the rust, refresh our skills, and get ready to hit a home run.

Spring Training speakers are experts within their fields, and the training is an opportunity to learn from them in-depth, in addition to offering interactive opportunities to ask questions and chat with chasing veterans.

Our inaugural event will focus in the following areas:

  • Forecasting 101

  • How to read radar & satellite imagery

  • About the Storm Prediction Center & National Weather Service regions - and the reciprocal relationship with storm chasers

  • Chase safety & the role of storm chasers in an emergency

  • How to produce, sell and broker video content

  • Chasing the monsoon & lightning photography 101


STAY TUNED FOR SPEAKER LIST & BIOS, COMING SOON!

We will also have two virtual gathering spaces as part of the event, offering opportunities to chat with female experts in:

  • Storm chasing, self-taught

  • Storm chasing, meteorology background

  • Meteorology (National Weather Service)

  • Broadcast meteorology

  • Private enterprise meteorology
     

This event will always be held virtually and remain affordable; Girls Who Chase is a global community and we believe strongly in making science and learning accessible to everyone without the constraints of travel or financial hardship.
