2021/22  youth PROGRAMS

We cater to all levels of young Freestyle riders, from those at an introductory freestyle level, all the way up to those at a highly advanced, World Class level, and are the only program in Ontario that provides this opportunity for advancement.  Our Senders Youth programs are a proven progressional pathway to the National teams, or are a great choice if you're obsessed with Snowboarding and want to up your skills in an environment with other riders with similar goals.  Many of our former riders also end up maintaining strong friendships and often travel and live together after their time on the team.  The time spent on the team in a familiar environment with mentorship, allows them to build strong friendships and helps to prepare them for independence.

The Full Program is the best option for those who are looking to seriously advance their skill sets.  Our most advanced competitors and riders that you see in our media come through our Full program.  Team members have an additional 14 Friday training days through the season.  The Friday training dates are of vital importance for more training opportunities during our short Ontario Winter season.  Friday training dates also have less traffic in the Terrain Park to allow for more laps and even higher quality input with one of our most experienced coaches who are scheduled on Fridays.
