About

2022/23 Comp Team

The Comp Team is designed for Yukon snowboarders who are committed to achieving their highest level of performance. They have their sights set on Provincial and National competitions, as well as the Canada Winter Games and perhaps a career in snowboarding beyond the next few years.
 
Required Skill Level and Focus:
Participation in the Comp Team program is primarily based on athlete focus and a commitment to training, however a base snowboard skill set is required to ensure you can safely participate in competitions outside of the Yukon. The Head Coach will assess your skills, but as a baseline you should be comfortable and safe on intermediate (blue) freestyle terrain, (e.g. Coyote Park at Mt. Sima), and have solid carving skills on advanced (black) runs in most conditions.
 
Athletes must be approved to join the Comp Team.  
Contact the Technical Director, Mary Binsted at mary@snowboardyukon.com.

  • 6 day preseason training camp at Mt. Sima
  • 8 regular season training sessions Mt. Sima
