OMST_web

Program Description

The Okemo Mountain Snowboard Team is for any advanced rider (ages 10-18) looking to compete and to take his/her riding ability to a higher level.  Our coaching staff will work on all disciplines with the athlete to ensure that the rider becomes well rounded and well versed on a snowboard.  Being able to ride everything confidently is the foundation that can generate personal and competitive success in snowboarding.  We promote camaraderie within a team environment and strive to enhance the lives of each and every athlete by creating the ultimate on-hill winter experience.

There will be a mandatory one-hour screening for each new snowboarder looking to join the OMST program.  This will allow our coaching staff to determine if the rider is qualified to ride with the team and which group the rider will be riding with.

On Deck (Eddie Johnson, Luke Bonang)
The On Deck category is for athletes ages 10-15 who are advanced snowboarders looking to take their riding to the competitive level. We will work intensively with each rider on several different disciplines, which are all targeted towards having fun with the sport while developing the essential skills necessary to compete at a higher level. With a primary focus on improving overall riding skills, athletes in this age group will improve their switch riding, transition riding (pipe and jumps), “jibbing” (boxes and rails), all-mountain riding, and gate training (slalom and GS). This age group will also have the opportunity to compete in USASA events in the Southern Vermont series. Competing at USASA nationals at Copper Mountain is also a possibility.

Am
(Luke Bonang, Matt Fortuna)
The Am group is our group of the most advanced riders ages 10-18 on the team who have years of competition and park riding under their belt. The Am program is predominately geared towards park and pipe riding, but with a bit of cross training (BX and Gate training) included as well. We will work with each rider to hone in on advanced and technical freestyle tricks in the park and pipe, in addition to developing a more tactful approach to competitions and everyday riding. Video analysis will also be used as a tool to help the Am rider visually comprehend his/her riding. We strongly encourage all the athletes in this age group to compete in the local USASA competition series in addition to competing in other local amateur events. Competing at USASA nationals is a possibility.
