Pushing for the Podium

Pushing for the Podium (must contact Head Coach to register)

PFTP is designed for the dedicated athlete that attends a Sports School or that has the flexibility to train during the day. PFTP is for the avid freestyle competitive snowboarder desiring the most “on snow” and cross training time possible. This high performance, year round training program prepares athletes for the Alberta series, Canadian Nationals, Pro Circuit series and includes many “off snow” services as well as consistent access to our top coaches.

“On Snow” 3-4 training sessions per week including but not limited to:

  • Mid-November to mid-March
  • Purchase of a FIS License
  • Night/Day before competition training (if applicable)
  • ASA Alberta Series events (entry fee not included)
  • FIS/TTR events (entry fee not included)
  • Freeride Mountain Camps
  • National Championship (if applicable – depending on rider’s goals)
  • Early Winter/Spring camp coaching/chaperone (Western Canadian Mountains)
  • Summer camp coaching/chaperone (Mt Hood)
  • Participation in industry sponsored events will be discussed with coaches/riders

“Off Snow”

  • Dryland Training Pro (Includes personal trainer)
  • Tramp Training Pro (9 sessions)
  • Program qualifies riders for a CWSAA pass (CWSAA criteria must be met)
  • Includes Alberta Snowboard Association membership

*NEW for the PFTP Program*

  • Dryland Training at The Compound – 8 Spring Sessions and 4 Summer Sessions

*These programs were designed by the same trainer that Canada Snowboard has contracted out to train their National Team.

  • Skateboard sessions and Max Air Tramp sessions
  • Full access to The Compound Monday-Friday 10am-4pm and during Drop In sessions
  • We will be building each PFTP athlete their own YTP (Yearly Training Plan). This is basically your whole year on one excel sheet to help stagger your training appropriately. Rest and Recovery is important and knowing when to train hard and when to lay off the gas is critical when training at such high volumes.
