Hi Everyone!


Hope this email finds you well.


TJ and I have planned a really fun week for the crew next week to help prepare our crew for the upcoming events in next couple of weeks.


“PROGRESSION SESSION WEEK” will be run from Tuesday – Friday next week. Check out the schedule:


Tuesday – Rail Jam at Vail.

Wednesday – Slopestyle at Vail.

Thursday – Half Pipe at Vail

Friday – Training day for USASA event in Steamboat

Saturday – USASA Event in Steamboat

Sunday – Tramp day from 9 – 11 at VSSA.


The rules of the comp are simple. The athletes that show the most PROGRESSION over the week. It won’t be the best riders or best tricks, but the riders that can show the most improvement and creativity that will win the schwag.


It will be JAM FORMAT so the riders will get 45 – 60 minutes of training and the rest of the session to compete. Coach TJ will be there to coach during the practice sessions and then will judge the events. We have a set of bibs we can use for each rider so it really simulates competition!


We have some schwag to give out as prizes for the top performers based on each event and over all as well.


Feel free to hit me and TJ back with any questions.


Have fun!

Click here for the schedule for the USASA Rocky Mountain Series this year. If your kids are interested in competing in any of these events just let me know and I will make sure I am there. I can’t promise I will be at any events besides Halfpipe, Slopestyle, and Boardercross seeing as I am not an alpine coach.  Please email me with any questions
