The 2016/17 season has been the busiest yet for British Snowboard cross. With 15 athletes on the full time program and many more joining the program on an ad hoc basis during the season – it has been our most challenging and exciting yet.
Due to the increased demand and safeguarding responsibilities we are making some changes to our junior / part time SBX programs going forward.
- We are offering a part time program to athletes aged 18yrs and over. The coaching cost for the part time program is £1400. For this, the athlete receives 18 days coaching in any one season (this is the maximum a part time athlete can attend for). This cost covers coaching and travel in team vehicles from the team base to the training venue and back every day and also competition venues if attending a competition. We are offering early bird prices – if purchased before the 1st June the cost is £1200. Senior athletes on the part time program can join the full time team during the season when available. Minimum selection – National Academy athletes.
- Due to safeguarding we are now offering a revised SBX junior program during the season. Instead of offering juniors the option of joining the senior program on an ad hoc basis, for junior athletes going forward, we shall be organising dedicated camps during the season which will be made public shortly. These camps will be 1 week in duration and will see the camp athletes staying in accomodation together with a dedicated coach and house parent. The cost for these camps will be circa £1050 per athlete and will include accomodation, lift pass, coaching, fitness support and dedicated transfers to/from the airport. Minimum selection – Home Nations Academy athletes.
- We have some flexibility with athletes aged between 16yrs-18yrs. These athletes can potentially join the part time or junior programs – pls discuss before booking – firstname.lastname@example.org.
