Summer Air Academy program dates and details are now available:
The search is on for coaches that can take the fast growing SS Freestyle Competitive program to the next level. Program Director Wade Garrod has been tasked to build the coach team for 2019-20 ski season and beyond.
"The competitive SS Freestyle ski and snowboard programs have been growing and developing to new levels over the last few seasons. The focus is on building better skills now so athletes will achieve success and results in the future. This next team of coaches will be a mix of existing SS Freestyle Coach talent and probably some new talent as well. My goal is to build a cohesive coaching team that will support the dreams of SS Freestyle athletes. Our teams will continue to be athlete centered and coach driven with the support from the excellent volunteers, families and local partners. It's in our best interest to foster an already developed performance culture with in the club."
