Nova Scotia Snowboard Offers a Wide Range of Programs for Participants to Enter Competitive Snowboarding

Athletes:

Step 1: Join a training program at your local Ski Hill. Any athlete looking to compete locally should be obtaining some training from your local resort Snow School. Martock and Wentworth offer weekly training groups through the RIDERS program, and Ben Eoin offers multi-week riding programs. Call or email your local resort for more information.

Step 2: Register and compete in Nova Scotia Snowboard Provincial Series competitions.  Nova Scotia Snowboard coaches are at every event and it is the perfect way to identify yourself as an athlete who is interested in competing and progressing their riding.

Step 3: Talk to a Provincial Team coach at any Nova Scotia Snowboard event. Coaches are always watching, but approaching them and asking questions about the program is a great way to get noticed!

Parents/Athletes, always feel free to e-mail our provincial coaches with more questions:
