The Gould Snowboard Competition Program helps riders reach their goals–whether that means competing for the first time at a local USASA event or standing on the podium at the Burton US Open Series and beyond.
Riders benefit from the perfect blend of hard work, dedicated coaches, a high-quality training facility like Sunday River Ski Resort and balanced programming that only a school like Gould can offer.
Year round training is tailored to the individual student-athlete and includes their off season sport of choice like competitive skateboarding, soccer or mountain biking, supplemented with plyometrics training and work in the weight room and trampoline room.
