Program Description:

Come and join the crew from Summit Action Sports for an incredible training project in Cardrona, New  Zealand.

Our full-time program will train 5 days per week, in an environment centered around having fun while progressing with other athletes who have proven to excel and share the same vision and passion.
 

The performance outcome of the “SAS Shred” Program is the development of consistent and efficient riding at the greatest intensity possible. Athletes will begin to self-correct and refine their individual style. 

 

SAS Shred takes a multidisciplinary approach to develop fundamental skills and movements. This will allow participants to realize their potential as an athlete and as a steward of the sport. Training days will be extremely individualized in their focus, as coaches support athletes to prepare for their individual goals.

 

Acrobatic training will be a very important part of the program, and we use our great partnership with Woodward at Copper to achieve this.

 

The program will be guided by Olympic Goal Medal Coach Ben Boyd. Ben has guided many of the world’s best to achieve incredible results on a world stage. He is excited to use this experience by helping to develop passionate, dedicated and excited junior athletes to become the best they can be.

 

Although slopestyle and halfpipe focused, our crew will be working on building elite free ride skills. We encourage our riders to enter all disciplines, and will build skills so that our athletes can reach success no matter the discipline!

 

This program is designed for those driven, passionate, talented kids that already know that snowboard is their athletic path.

 

Other Services included within the Program:

 

  • Acrobatic Training: Using the world-class facility at Woodward at Copper, acrobatic training will be a scheduled and important part of learning new tricks in a safe and sensible environment, following a logical progression for building elite skills.

  • Strength and Conditioning Programming: Through the cooperation with our partners like Nakoa Fitness, our athletes will have access to world-class, action sport-specific programming and assessment. This will include in-season options as well as summer S&C Camps.

  • Media Training and Presentation Skills: We are lucky to have Katy Temple Coaching as a partner with our program. During the season, we will run a set of seminars designed to teach our athletes’ presentation skills and media training. Not only are these skills key within the action sports market place, but they also teach our kids life skills that will hold them in good stead all throughout their lives.

  • Social Media Development: Through our partnership with TwoTwoFour Media and Katy Temple Coaching, we can assist in building and developing social media content and management through Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms. By helping to build a solid social media presence, we can help our athletes grow followers, and reach the influencers and companies within the action sports market.

  • Business Skills Development: As our athletes develop as riders, they will reach the level where sponsorship is possible. We will help our athletes develop the skills to approach potential sponsors professionally, helping them to market themselves in a competitive market. Professionalism does not just apply to riding skills!

Other Information:

 

SAS runs camps throughout the year. As part of the benefits of being in our program, our FULL-TIME athletes get these camps at cost.

 

We choose to start our program in the first week of December. There are a couple of reasons for this:

 

  • We want to ensure that Colorado has facilities and snow to make training and worthwhile.

  • We believe that the family unit is an important part of a rider’s success and that they need those important family times. Starting after Thanksgiving allows our riders to celebrate all the major holidays, with their families!

 

To supplement this, we run a 2-week camp in Kitzsteinhorn Resort in Kaprun, Austria from November 4th– November 18th. This gets our riders ready for the season so that they come into Colorado with some freestyle skills already under their belts. 

 

Our aim is on the long-term development of the athlete. This means looking at snowboarding as a year-round endeavor.

 

It is expected that our riders attend some camps in summer with SAS. Details will be provided during the season.

 

We will be doing a 2-week camp in Laax from January 19th– February 10th2020. (Subject to weather, terrain and athlete interest).

 

Each family will sign a contract that outlines the working relationship with SAS, the payment structure and the responsibilities of both parties. This leads to a professional and crystal-clear relationship that ultimately benefits both parties.
