Academy Program Training Philosophy & Opportunities


The CVA Snowboard Program focuses on long-term athlete development and applying the appropriate and latest research principles to promote the development of overall athleticism in our student athletes.  Our human performance program works with each athlete to define individual needs and provide the resources needed to support athletic growth.  As a team we work together to support one another both on and off the hill

By incorporating each athlete into the process of goal setting, competition planning, fitness evaluations, and conditioning planning, we will allow each student athlete to become part of their individual athletic process.

On snow all athletes will be placed into a specific training group based on ability, past competition results, motivation, and individual goals relative to snowboard competition. Each individual's needs will be assessed and a season-long plan will be created that will encompass all details related to the season, and will clearly define the pathway to success.

Movement between groups is encouraged, and will be determined based on: athlete progression, skill acquisition, commitment to training, and overall attitude. Individual safety, as well as on-hill awareness and code of conduct will always be a priority within each group.
