Snowboarding


Don’t miss the upcoming Snowboarding Webinar hosted by Snowboard Program Director KC Gandee!


The Gould Academy Competition Program’s Snowboard Team helps riders reach their goals – whether 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 at Sunday River, and balanced programming that only a school like Gould can offer.

Year-round training tailored to the individual student-athlete and including their offseason sport of choice, such as competitive skateboarding, soccer, lacrosse, or mountain biking, is supplemented with plyometrics training and work in the Farnsworth Field House weight room and trampoline room.
