Intro to Freestyle Snowboarding
Our NEW Introduction to Freestyle Snowboarding program is a progressive learning program which aims to enhance rider’s skills and abilities in a safe learning environment. Riders will be taught various freestyle fundamentals to utilize both in the program and on their own. Snowboarders have the chance to interact with others and share their passion of snowboarding!
This program is for children ages 6-12 who enjoy the Terrain Park. The program meets for 3 hours on Saturday mornings for 8-weeks in January & February.
Young athletes must be at ease in the Terrain Park and be able to load, ride and unload the chairlift independently. Each week the class gathers at the Alpine Training Center and then heads over to the Terrain Park with our certified snowboard instructors. This program is ideal for children who are thinking about joining our Freestyle Snowboard Team but cannot make the full commitment or are not sure if they are ready.
At the end of the program, the coaches will provide the students with an assessment of readiness to transition to the Mount Southington Freestyle Snowboard Team. Parents will also be given the opportunity to meet with coaches and parents of the team to ask questions and get feedback on any concerns they may have.
