This upcoming season we are very excited to have the opportunity to be involved with the Red Mountain Academy program to help young snowboarders reach their goals in the sport.
NSST is continuing to develop the coaching opportunities in the Kootenay region and is looking to expand their programs for the upcoming 2009 season. As well as the Kootenay Riders Snowboard Academy program we are working on including specific Girls Only programs and to expand the amount of sessions that are offered at Red Mountain.
The training Philosophy of NSST is based upon individual goals and progression within areas of interest. We believe this training philosophy is superior for a number of reasons. Athletes remain motivated to work towards their personal goals for the simple reason that the goals are not generic goals for the group as a whole, rather more rewarding towards personal achievements. Training sessions will be more enjoyable and thus a major positive environment to promote progression. This approach also focuses on improving athlete's strengths to promote confidence and eventually improving their weaknesses.
With the support Canada~Snowboard and the British Columbia Snowboard Association, our programs guide riders through the steps of competition at the local, Provincial and National levels. All athletes are encouraged to follow a dynamic training schedule based upon individual areas of interest. Our goal is to provide the highest level of coaching to all athletes while promoting a safe, positive and fun environment in which athletes may develop their abilities and progress towards their own personal goals.
