Snowboard Devo Team, grades 2-8

Snowboard Devo Team (ages 7-13, grades 2-8)

Snowboard Devo Team program is intended for riders looking to progress their snowboard skills while being introduced to the world of competition. This is a great program for the rider who already has a solid foundation of skills on their snowboard and wants to further develop fundamental skills. The Devo Team includes competition opportunities to develop and test skills against other regional riders. In order to foster the rider’s long-term athletic development and provide learning opportunities, athletes will have the opportunity to participate in one regional event for each discipline: Giant Slalom, Slalom, Boardercross, Halfpipe, Slopestyle, and Rail Jam through USASA Rocky Mountain Series. We will emphasize team camaraderie and team culture while setting individual goals and focusing on individual progression. While participants are not required to compete, we may not offer alternative training on some competition days.

  • Skill requirement: Ability to confidently link S-turns on black terrain. Beginning to explore off piste.
  • Equipment: Participants need snowboard equipment, a helmet, and should be purchasing their own boots and bindings. An all-terrain board is recommended.
