    To Comp Freestyle Team,

    This message is targeted towards the 2019/20 Comp Freestyle team.  Hope you are all well during this time of Covid-19.  Sounds like we are on the horizon of a shift to where we "might" be able to do more sports activities.  Important information will be coming in the next 2-4 weeks as the sport sector has its meetings and guidelines for facilities and programming is laid out.  

    Just to be clear Freestyle is NOT insured to operate programming at this time.  But we are keen to provide smooth transitions and purposeful activities as restrictions are lifted. More to come on Spring / Summer programs.  Freestyle programming is going to look different going forward.

    Right NOW we are looking at the 2-3 month period ahead of us. Momentum Camps may be one of the options for the SS Freestyle Comp Team.   Again there currently is a lot of "unknown details".  We are hopeful at best that these training opportunities will exist this summer.  An important note to each athlete that a lot of emphasis on preparation will be required before showing up at SS Freestyle Comp Team camps this season. 

    Please check out Momentum Camps "Teams options".  Option 3 is where SS Freestyle could send its team with its coach (or coaches).  In the next week (or so) Momentum will be making a business case to see if they will be able to operate this summer. At this time we are seeking YOUR interest in Momentum Camp "Team training". Costs and travel plans are undetermined at this time.   We would propose 6 - 9 snow days with 3 days on snow then 1 day off cycles.  We are not sure on exact dates of the Momentum Whistler but speculate it would be between June 29 & July 19.  Also based on the groups needs will determine how much slopestyle and moguls training the camp would offer. 

    After speaking with Hayden he recognizes this is a big investment for families.  This training opportunity is next level for many of the athletes on the SS Freestyle Comp Team.  If your not able to make it for any reason we will be providing more local and regional options as well.  But for any training camp to get the best value the athlete must be dedicated to the process of preparing for the camp.  The following pre-camp preparation is required:

    • Goal setting prioritizing purpose of the camp ~ over phone with Hayden
    • Technical prep -Spring trampoline, dry-slope rail and water ramping prior ~ With Coach(es)
    • Physical - General strength and conditioning likely on your own.
      • 2-3 workouts per day
        • 30 to 90 minutes
        • Strength (at home or on-line)
        • Flexibility and recovery
        • Aerobic (run/swim/bike) On your own or with family members
        • General virtual guidance from a coach

    So if you're interested in pursuing  Momentum camps and willing to do the preparation please express your interest to wade@ssfreestyle.com OR comment publicly in the comment section below.  Also feel free to include hayden@ssfreestyle.com if you choose to email.   Please show your interest by Friday May 15, 2020

    As more details unfold we will keep you posted via this blog and email. 

    Kind Regards,

    Wade Garrod
