The SnoAcademy is a market leading and unique children’s club designed to develop Britain’s next top skiers and snowboarders. Whether your child is just looking to learn a new sport, or has their sights set on a future Winter Olympics, this is the course for them.
Children develop either skiing or snowboarding skills where the emphasis is on learning and development in a fun packed weekly session that really engages children. With a true club atmosphere, including their own club ‘hoodies’*, children will learn in a very safe environment.
Each individual level is rewarded through the signing of Snowlife cards and the delivery of badges and certificates at the end of each term. SnoAcademy operates three age groups: 3 to 6, 7 to 10 and 11-15 year olds in the SnoAcademy Excel.
Each age group has its own session time running on both Saturday and Sunday mornings from 9am. Castleford also offer a further weekday session for 7-10yrs on Tuesday evenings starting at 5pm, and Milton Keynes also run a weekday session for 11-15yrs on Wednesdays from 6pm. Please note skiing is taught from the age of 3 yrs and snowboarding from the age of 7 yrs.
A unique programme that progresses children (3-15 years) to a higher level of performance. Many will graduate from the SnoAcademy sessions after reaching the Snowlife level 6 standard, but your child can still join if they have never attended the SnoAcademy, pending assessment on their first Excel session. They will then be allocated to their coach with whom they will work each week.
There is a definitive programme for the Academy Excel that will flow as follows:
Week 1 - Personal Performance
Week 2 - Race Training
Week 3 - Moguls - this is subject to the normal programmed groom for the moguls so the date for this can be varied
Week 4 - Freestyle
Week 5 - Personal Performance
Week 6 - Race Training
For those children that don't wish to take part in the full programme, their specialist coach will be available to continue with a more focussed personal performance.
The SnoAcademy Excel operates from 9am at the weekends at Milton Keynes and from midday at the weekends at Castleford.
*Hoodies are purchased separately and not included in the price of the course
