The Senior Snowboard Team is for the experienced rider who exhibits a high level of dedication to snowboarding and is looking to develop the well-rounded skills required for competition and elite level riding. Training sessions will focus on advanced techniques in Slopestyle and Halfpipe with the goal of developing a strong base for USASA events and Future’s Tour competitions. Participants will be on a full “skier” schedule with “0” hour at SSHS. In order to promote free-riding all around the mountain with friends and family and prevent burnout through the season, this program does not include training on the weekends. Athletes will get plenty of training during the week and all USASA events are held on weekends.
If your athlete is not participating in other fall sports, check out our additional Senior Snowboard Fall Dryland for additional preseason training and time in the gym.
