The WPST Full-Time program is designed for those athletes who have demonstrated a high level of dedication to snowboarding and competing in USASA competitions and who want to take their riding to the next level. Full-time athletes exhibit the drive and desire to pursue high level events such as the USSA Revolution Tour and USSA Grand Prix events, whether they are ready for these events immediately or have ambitions to compete in these events in the future. WPST coaches work with each rider to determine what events to attend based on ability, age, interest, goals, and maturity/sportsmanship.
During the winter season, full-time athletes ages 11-13 (middle school) are on-hill from 1-4pm on Tues/Thurs and are on-hill 9-3:30 F/Sa/Su, with supervised study/athletic science programs on Wednesdays. Full-time athletes ages 14+ (high school/post-grad) are on-hill 1-4pm T-W-Th and 9-3:30 on F/Sa/Sun. All Full-time athletes are expected to participate in camp, workshop and training opportunities provided through the Competition Center’s Athletic Science program during the season. Off-season activities (e.g. summer camp) are strongly encouraged but are not included in program cost (April 13-Oct. 31).
