Youth Development

Boardriderz, ages 6-11

This program is designed to allow snowboarders to improve their overall snowboarding techniques and develop a solid foundation of skills. Boardriderz are broken into groups based on age and ability. Some groups will gradually work toward more difficult terrain while more experienced groups will explore powder, bumps, trees, steeps and freestyle. The importance of warming up, stretching, code of conduct and having fun are emphasized. Snowboarders are encouraged to participate in Community Jams.

If your athlete is not participating in other fall sports, check out our Fall Fun Fit (ages 8-10), additional Junior Snowboard Fall Dryland  (11-13), and Fall Skateboard Camp for additional preseason training.
