Snowboarding / Ski Cross
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.

Competition Program - Snowboarding Coaches
Coach Holzweiss graduated from Gould Academy in 2002 and has been giving back to the Gould community as a Weekend Coach for the past eight years. In 2014, he began coaching full-time student-athletes as the Development Coach, helping younger and developing riders have the most fun with the strongest foundation for skills improvement. Coach Holzweiss is USASA Level 200 certified with a slopestyle endorsement.
A graduate of the University of Maine at Farmington’s Ski Industries Program, Coach Johnston has a minor in alpine coaching and more than 20 years of full-time coaching. His experience ranges from grassroots club programs to prep schools to ski academies, including Stratton Mountain School, Killington Mountain School, and Bromley Outing Club. His vast experience working with a multitude of programs and age groups allows him to create a strong team atmosphere among athletes, coaches, and teachers. Coach Johnston’s high-energy approach and fun personality are always present on and off of the hill, and his coaching knowledge and philosophy keep athletes motivated to strive for excellence. He lives off campus with his wife, Kimmie, and daughters Reid and Maisy. When not on the hill, he is mountain biking, playing guitar, or fishing for striped bass.
