If you want to solely progress your riding or you have aspirations to compete at the Olympics – we can help you realise your potential.

The junior program focusses on all aspects of snowboarding including freeride, freestyle, snowboard cross, park & pipe and all mountain with further opportunities to specialise within the wider aspects of our program.

The junior program coaches all aspects of snowboarding including freestyle (park & pipe), free ride, all mountain and snowboard cross.

Coaching

One of the real challenges we see on an almost daily basis are younger junior snowboarders “specialising” in a snowboard discipline too early – and this is especially prevalent in British junior snowboarders.  We believe that our junior snowboarders should receive coaching in all areas of snowboarding. A typical season would see Oct & Nov as dedicated coaching months then Jan, Feb and Mar a mixture of coaching and competing at various competitions in various disciplines across Europe.

Child Safeguarding | House parent

We take our child safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. As a professional program we are fully affiliated with Snowsport England and have a full time “house parent” in resort; a major part of gaining this affiliation includes meeting stringent child safeguarding requirements. All our staff attend various workshops and courses. We have many years experience working with children.

The best school ever…

Nutrition & fitness is important for World class athletes so we believe it is extremely important for our junior athletes too. We work with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) who provide weekly nutrition lessons.  We show our athletes how what we eat and drink affects our body when we are resting, training, competing or recovering from an injury.
