U12 Snowboard Fundamentals – Block 20

Sale: $5,500 inc GST

Block 20*—The Under 12 Youth Development Snowboard Fundamentals programs are specifically designed for athletes between the ages of 10 and 12. The Block is a set schedule of 20 training days, including 10 days during the June School Holidays and then 5 weekends(fortnightly) of on-snow and dryland training throughout the season.

The program is designed to help athletes bridge the gap between the entry-level U10 and the more intensive Snow Australia Pathway Programs from U14 and above. The program is suited to athletes who are confident snowboarders all over the mountain(black runs) in a variety of snow conditions and they should have completed levels 5 or 6 at ski school.

The U12 program provides the flexibility to place young people into the right peer-based learning environments determined by developmental needs and not solely by chronological age.

Building the framework

The U12 athletes do a little bit of everything on and off the snow, with a strong focus on holistic skill development (technical, tactical, physical and psychological), with increased exposure gates training and all-mountain competency remaining the core focus.

The U12 program focuses on rounding out the athlete’s fundamental skills, combined with an increased time in gate-based environments and provides for the introduction of more advanced snowboarding concepts and equipment maintenance. This typically includes:

  • Continue refining all key skills of snowboarding including;
  • Balance, edging, steering, jumping, and timing
  • Bumps and jumps;
  • Off-piste in trees and powder;
  • Slow, controlled and precise snowboarding;
  • Short turns – medium turns – big turns – no turns;
  • Fast, athletic and fluid movement;
  • Regular freeride activity to further refine the complement of skills
  • Gate training; and
  • Specific race techniques.

Maximum Age Level Enrolment

  • 32 athletes

Minimum ability

  • U12 athletes should be confident snowboarders all over the mountain in a variety of snow conditions.
