As uncertainty persists around COVID-19, programs will continue to follow protocols mandated by the Government of Yukon and Canada Snowboard. Details will be shared as training begins.

For the 2021/22 season Snowboard Yukon (SY) will continue to offer a program fees refund if a program has been suspended due to COVID-19. If this occurs SY will provide a fees refund based on the remaining percentage of the program in progress to the participant. This refund will not cover interruptions to SY programs based on weather, or other non-COVID-19 related issues. The refund does not include membership fees.

Strength & Conditioning and Yoga

Comp Team only (Freeriders and High Performance)

Strong, fit snowboarders achieve their goals more quickly and are less susceptible to injury. Sessions are planned and led by the Northern Strength Academy.

Yoga is practiced to build strength and balance, and to improve flexibility. Yoga also helps to develop good breathing technique and mental focus. This class directly follows the Strength & Conditioning session. We are pleased to practice with Michelle Eshpeter!

Trampoline – in planning…

Under the direction of trained coaches, snowboarders use the trampoline to discover how to manipulate their bodies in the three axis of movement and improve air awareness in an environment with lower consequences than on snow.
