Snowboard Junior Team, grade 6-8
This program is designed for riders who are eager to enhance their snowboarding skills, offering comprehensive training in all competitive disciplines. Riders are encouraged to take part in local community jams and regional USASA events. Coaches will guide riders on a clear path, focusing on either racing or freestyle disciplines while still maintaining a well-rounded approach to training. Specific discipline training will be provided, and coaches will work with riders to establish a personalized competition schedule that strikes the right balance between training and events. Dryland training sessions start prior to the on-snow season. These sessions focus on developing physical literacy, improving fitness, fostering team culture, setting individual goals, building camaraderie, and, most importantly, having fun. We understand and support athletes who engage in other sports during the fall season. If your athlete is not participating in other fall sports, check out our additional Fall Skateboard Camp for additional preseason training.
