AVSC’s year-round programs are competitive programs that include on-snow training from November-April as well as age-appropriate conditioning and gymnastics during the summer and fall months. Groups will typically meet 5 days a week in the winter, including after school and during school vacations, and 3-5 days (depending on age) during the summer and fall. Our year-round programs allow athletes to train and stay connected with teammates, coaches and AVSC while giving themselves the opportunity to be the best athlete possible.
TEAM 1 (AGE 11+)
Team 1 is the first step in our two-tiered year-round programing. It is designed for riders committed to regional USASA level events, including USASA Nationals. AVSC’s experienced coaches will help athletes set SMART goals, while working with athletes on and off snow to help achieve these goals. On-snow training emphasizes technique, tactics, strategy, and mental readiness. While year-round training is not required it is highly recommended to create the best possible environment for athlete success. Summer dryland including time spent in the gym, gymnastics and our trampolines are all included with this program. The opportunity to participate in summer on-snow camps is also strongly recommended for the highest level of success.

Team 2 is the second step of our two-tiered year-round programing. It is designed for riders with a commitment to Rev-Tour, Hole Shot, Race to the Cup, and Grand-Prix level events.
