SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS!

INTRODUCTORY PROGRAM AT MT ST. LOUIS-MOONSTONE
“The beginning is the most important part of the work.” 

The most overlooked aspect of Snowboard coaching programs, are the beginner programs.  Your first coaches are the ones that set the foundation you carry through the rest of your time Snowboarding.  If they don't know what they are doing and have no real mentorship or experience with coaching either as a program participant, or a coach, you can bet that you will be stuck with bad habits that can take years to fix under proper coaching and close your window of riding down.  Not only can these poor habits affect your ability to progress, they can greatly increase your chance of injury in the Park and Pipe.  Most beginner coaching programs cram kids on buses, split them into large groups, assign them inexperienced riders who are poor Snowboarders themselves, with no direction from real, experienced riders, coaches and program managers.

INTRO PROGRAM

*All program prices cover coaching only and do not include Season Passes, Compulsory Snowboard Ontario Membership and Transport.  MSLM Seasons Passes can be purchased for team members only, through The Senders at the early bird discounted rate.  All additional family members who are signed up will get a 20% discount on their program of equal or lower price.

This program is the combination of 10 plus years of learning achieved through our high end programs. Coaches are often hand picked from our long time experienced team members from our upper level Senders programs and guided by an experienced program manager who is a high level coach.  This allows us to put staff in place who understand our riders far better than standard certified coaching staff.   NO OTHER PROGRAMS IN ONTARIO HAVE THIS!!

Our beginner/intro program is the best place to start if you are not sure if you are at the level required to be on one of our higher end programs, or if you are not ready to commit the time and finances for our higher end programs.  We designed our 9 Week Simple Snowboarding program to build the best platform to increase your ability in the Park and Pipe.  Program participants learn all the skills that make or break riders when they get to a higher level. There's a lot to cover in one season, so you might need 2 before moving up in programs.  The skills you learn on this program will be the platform that the rest of your Snowboarding Builds on!

CURRENT TEAM RIDERS WHO STARTED YOUNG

Running our higher end programs at THE SENDERS taught us the value of a good start.  Our team members that came into our programs early and did not come from another program previously, always became better riders. We want people to learn to ride well and get the most enjoyment that they can out of Snowboarding, in a safe and productive manner.  Don​'t believe us?  We picked five of our current team members who started at a young age with us to show you the level that they have reached with us..Check them out below...
