The Senders Programs

 

The Senders programs are designed to take you to the next level.  We have a history of helping to put team members who have the talent and drive and committed support system, through to the top level internationally.

We have a choice of multiple program options available at our home locations, all the way up to customized programs traveling to compete nationally for our most advanced and elite participants.  Participants are split into programs options and groups based on ability, from beginner to advanced.  Participants progress through the programs to work with more experienced coaches and join more experienced riders as their skills develop accordingly.  

Our priority based learning includes building strong foundational skills and progressing in a safe and confident manner.

WHAT PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Our programs are only a good fit for Snowboarders who are obsessed with the terrain park.  It's important to also assess your current ability before signing up to a program.  For example, a beginner park rider won't do well riding for a full day.  They may become far more vulnerable to injury later in the day, as all the minor and major muscle groups and movements have not been fully developed yet to help maintain control and avoid injuries.  Likewise a more advanced rider will struggle if they are in a group where the rest of the group is significantly lower level than they are.  This is the benefit of our programs for our participants running from beginner through to elite.  It allows us to give everyone a shot to develop based on being a part of a group, where there will always be riders at a similar level, going through similar skills and assigned to coaches who are a good fit for working with that level of participant.  It's important to look at where your current entry level is best described from the following 5 different levels and options;

 

1.Beginner - Riders who are new to a terrain park environment and are still learning how to clear jumps and basic features.

2. Rookie - Riders who have moved up from the beginner stage and are now confidently riding all features in the beginner park and are now dabbling in the Intermediate level Parks.  Rookies also begin to compete in local series events.

3. Intermediate - Riders who are spinning over medium jumps in the terrain park, using most rails in the intermediate park and occasionally riding the largest terrain park and big features.  Riders usually begin basic inverts at this level.

4. Advanced - Riders who the largest parks can't open soon enough for.  They are spinning and flipping over the largest features, have a group of single inverts learned and are usually working on double inverted manoeuvres.

 

5. Elite - Riders who have shown capabilities far beyond average in their categories or who have results placing them in or near the top nationally in their age categories.  This also includes advanced riders who are looking to compete on a national level tour.

*Our programs do not include transport and passes to access the resort or mandatory membership with the governing sport body (Ontario Snowboard ).

Beginner Snowboarder Options

If you find that your young Skier or Snowboarder is interested in the terrain park, but don't know where to start.  Our beginner program options are designed for you.  Beginner Options are only for riders who are interested in learning to use the terrain park at the most basic level.  Riders at this level are generally aged 12 and under, but may also be adults who are beginning to use the terrain park.  Riders joining our Beginner program must be able to navigate the resort un-assisted, including self loading on chairlifts.  They may have already been using terrain park features, but need to learn their key foundational skills in order to progress past the beginner park at the resort.  Our Beginner level programs are designed to build the key foundational skills needed before stepping up and pushing yourself inside the Terrain parks, or advancing on to our Rookie programs.  These skills allow you the foundation to make continued progress and take safer calculated risks in the park all the way up to an expert level.  These are all the most important skills identified by our most advanced and experienced coaches that were taught and used to help riders each their true potential over time. If you learn these first, you have a huge advantage.  Riders at this level will work with entry level certified coaches who will receive additional training from our more experienced staff members.

Program Options

Rookie Snowboarders are riders who are already riding the terrain park.  Rookie riders under 12 are often participating in another sport and have not yet decided to make a full switch over to Snowboarding. They are already using many of the features in the beginner terrain parks, but have not yet learned proper spin technique (one of the more difficult stages of progression).  These riders will begin to progress from the beginner park, into the smallest features in the intermediate park over the season as they build skills and work on their spin technique.  Rookie Snowboarders also have the option of a longer training day, attending local events and also have some night training options, as a result of their developing skills on a board and increased physical fitness. We would recommend however that anyone looking to do well in contests or increase their ability level significantly, ride a minimum of 2 days per weekend, but we left the option open to still choose single days due to other possible sporting commitments.  Rookie Snowboarders begin working with our more experienced coaches or former program members who have shifted over to coaching after multiple years on our program.

Intermediate/Advanced riders

Intermediate Snowboarder

Intermediate Snowboarders have learned basic spin technique, are hitting and clearing jumps in the Intermediate parks and are able to ride rails (Including side entry/Street style rails).  They are spinning 360-540 degrees of rotation in the terrain parks and may be considering learning some inverted manoeuvres.  This is generally the level of Snowboarding where our training trip options begin to open up for team members as most team members in this category are around 13+ years of age and need more than one day per week of training time.  

Advanced Snowboarders 

Advanced Snowboarders are confidently hitting all features in the terrain park and are able to spin up to at least 720, complete multiple inverts and are spinning on to and off rails.  They are looking to begin working on Double inverted manoeuvres and beyond.  It takes a lot of time, effort commitment and additional off-snow training and trips to extend the training season in order to get to this level of riding and as a result, these riders get to work with our highly experienced coaches. It would be exceptionally rare for anyone to get to this level riding only 2 days per week.

Elite Snowboarding Programs

SamIMG_3693-70.jpg
Elite Snowboarders

Our Elite level Snowboarders participate on a National tour during the season and attend additional training camps and participate in fitness training throughout the off-season.  Riders who hope to compete in an international event, such as the FIS NorAm tour or Junior World Champs, need to go through this level of training.  This level of riding and commitment is only for the most driven and committed athletes on the team and as a result, they will have access to the most elite coaching staff on the team.

Elite program members are expected to commit to a minimum number of training dates, national events and high performance camps throughout the season and will have access to our highest level coaches. This invite only program is for riders who have spent multiple years on our Senders programs and are looking to compete on a National/North American tour, have a fully supportive and committed family and have proved that they are driven and are willing to push their skill levels and fitness on and off-snow.

Details TBD and are based on North American competition circuit dates.
