The BC Snowboard Association (BC Snowboard) is inviting all eligible snowboard athletes to an open try-out for the provincial development program.

Dates are Dec. 3 at Mount Seymour Ski Area and Dec. 10 at Big White Ski Resort.

The provincial snowboard program offers support to competitive snowboarders at regional, provincial and national development levels.

The provincial development teams train five months a year on snow plus two months of pre-season dryland. The program is designed for younger riders aged 13 to 18 who

have some competitive experience.

The development teams train in two areas of the province, one being the Lower Mainland and the second being the Interior.

In order to attend the selection process, athletes must be at least 13 years of age, have some competitive experience and hold a BC Snowboard membership (can be purchased online or at the seleciton camp).

The ideal candidate will be:

• Athletic and competitive oriented and be looking to improve and fine tune their snowboard skills

• Interested in competing at a provincial level

• Experienced in competing locally

• Dedicated to training both on the snow and off.

There is no coaching cost to the participants for the selection camp, however it would be appreciated if participating athletes pre-register with the appropriate

coach:

Vancouver development team head coach Dane Kaechele,
