Mount Southington Freestyle Snowboard Team
Attention Snowboarders!! We are excited to introduce our new pilot program, the Mount Southington Freestyle Snowboard Team! This team focuses on skiers ages 7 – 18 who wish to learn the art of Freestyle Snowboarding while having fun on the slopes! This is your chance to train and compete your way. Do you know how to link turns (check it out here) and ride the entire mountain? If the answer is yes, then this is the program for you!
The Freestyle Snowboard Team is part of the Mount Southington Race Team and is held at our distinguished Jerry Donovan Alpine Training Center (JDATC). Our progressive learning program provides snowboarders with the opportunity to enhance their skills and abilities in a safe environment. The program is designed to be fun while helping young people develop physically, psychologically and socially. Our certified snowboard coaches will teach riders various freestyle fundamentals to utilize both in the program and on their own! This learning experience also gives snowboarders the chance to interact with others and share their passion of snowboarding.
The season begins with dryland training on November 19th from 10am-12pm. Once the area opens, the team hits the slopes and terrain park every Thursday evening from 6:30pm-9:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30am-1:30pm.
