COVID-19 and Program Fees Pandemic Refund Policy

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

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!

Whitehorse Shredders Trampoline

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.

This program also incorporates training boards and rails as well as other off trampoline tactics to improve snowboard movements.

Training space is extremely limited this year, as a result the trampoline program is restricted to athletes born in 2010 or earlier. ***UPDATE OCT. 5*** due to open spaces, the age limited has been increased to athletes born in 2011 or earlier.

Shredders sessions will be 1 hour in length and will be divided between trampoline training and rail practice. Trampolines will be shared between 2 athletes with a coaching ratio of 2 athletes to 1 coach, creating our most focused training environment to date.

Please arrive dressed ready to train in clothes you can move in with clean socks. If you have a small shoe size you may need to bring your snowboard boots to fit the practice board bindings. Please make sure your boots are clean before coming.

Fees do not include: Compete Membership
