We have plenty of opportunities for you to get further involved with this fantastic sport. Through coaching, you can receive training to expand your knowledge and understanding of all things snowboard; Or you can chose to push yourself as an athlete by competing in Freestyle.
Freestyle Snowboarding - Freestyle Snowboarding covers a range of disciplines such as Slopestyle (ramps and rails), Half pipe, Moguls, and Snowboard-cross. Due to our recent successes in the Olympics, Freestyle is becoming more and more popular: Most artificial slopes in Wales now have freestyle Slopestyle sessions and a few have mogul (Bumps) slopes. To practice half pipe and Snowboard cross we need to travel out to the mountains.
Coaching and Instructing - Want to tell everyone about how amazing snowboarding is? If you want to get involved in helping others to get as much out of your sport as you have why not train as an instructor or coach. Courses are available throughout the UK in a British and Internationally recognised scheme. Courses are available to train as an instructor working with beginners to advanced level snowboarders, working with customers with disabilities or coaching in freestyle disciplines. Courses are also available to train in Skiing and Nordic disciplines.
